Rapid River Streamer Pattern - Tied by Scott Biron

This Carrie Stevens Rangeley style streamer is popular on the Rapid River where sizable Brook Trout can still be found. The blending of the green and gray make for a very interesting look that often entice brookies. This fly can be tied in many sizes but the 9x and 7x Partridge Heritage Streamer hooks are perfect.
