These photos of fifteen different Carrie Stevens streamer patterns that I tied in March was initially posted in my Cabin Weekend Fly Tying Session http://donbastianwetflies.wordpress.com/2012/03/11/cabin-weekend-fly-tying-session/ dated March 11th. I am posting them separately here with only the patterns identified for inclusion in my developing Carrie Stevens Pattern Dictionary. Eventually the recipes will be posted with photos of the individual patterns as I continue working on this portion of my blog.
