An absolute must have Maine streamer for trout and salmon. The Golden Retriever was originally created in Virginia about 30 years ago. Since then, its effectiveness has swept across the fly fishing nation. When this fly gets wet, the estaz body material becomes semi translucent, making the red under body visible to the fish, which is a great attractor.
Hook: Firehole Outdoors 839 streamer hook size 8. This is a 3X long length hook with a 2X gape. It has a down eye and is formed from an extra heavy weight wire.
Bead: Round Gold brass bead
Tied by Logan Messina in Solon, Maine.
