Llama Hair Streamers...

...three words you don't often hear uttered in the same sentence. Yet, here they are, two flies conceived by the Maine streamer tyer Gray Wolf.

Of the 100 or so streamers (personal communication from the man himself) conceived by the now retired Gray Wolf, there are 16 in publication, of which I am aware.

15 are in David Klausmeyer's book Tying Classic Freshwater Streamers, where I found these two. The other is Rangeley Sesquicentennial, was published in Fly Tyer Magazine a few years ago, which I tied for streamers365 last year

So to the llama hair flies. Both are tied on mustad 4xl hoks.
