Tying the Allison Streamer

In this Tightline Productions video, I tie a streamer pattern designed by a long time fly fishing friend, Mike Appello, which he named for his daughter.  It combines elements of the flatwing style mostly used for saltwater flies, and Gartside's soft hackled streamer, making a slender fly that has lots of movement in the water.  It's also a fairly easy pattern to tie.  When Mike ties it in larger sizes, he will use three hackles for the tail. 

Sharpen your hooks.
