    Name this Classic Streamer

    I wonder who can come up with the name & originator of this classic streamer?
    I'll give you a hint, It's not a Carrie streamer.

    bingo. Well done.

    I have about a dozen patterns I carry for river fishing, half classics and half modern streamers. The Grizzly Prince has been very good to me. A great streamer to cast up in the end of a riffle and rip downstream through a pool.

    It's hard to tell from your photo whether you stripped the bottom side of grizzly or not -- it looks like there's a stem in the middle, but the bottom side looks too even to not be stripped. I'm thinking that with modern hackles, you could get a grizzly thin and long enough that you don't need to strip the side (as in the original,)
