Allagash Lake
Allagash Lake
To me, this Mike Martinek streamer is just as classic a fly as Lew Oatman's Brook Trout and should deserve the same recognition. $5.50 (JC eyes included)
Bauman Bucktail
Bauman Bucktail
A very neat and colorful little bucktail.
Bean's Special
Bean's Special
Older L.L. Bean streamer pattern. A knock-off of the venerable Black Ghost. I wonder how irritated Herbie Welch was over seeing this for sale!?
Black & Orange

Cardinelle
Cardinelle
A little over the top, but I have had just enough success with landlocks on this pattern when all else fails that I will now carry a couple in my streamer box as a last resort fly.
Careless Coachman
Careless Coachman
The flourescent red body is good for low light fishing.
Chief Needahbeh
Chief Needahbeh
This streamer was created by the famous Moosehead Lake region individual who was just as colorful as the fly.
Colonel Bates
Colonel Bates
A truly classic streamer and one that has continuously produced for me over the years, especially for landlocks.

A West Branch pattern for fall fishing named after the pool in the stretch above Chesuncook lake.
Golden Bear

Another Mike Martinek winner.

An excellent streamer for Grand Lake stream. The wing hackles are tied in flat for a unique action.

A great fly to fish for brook trout.
Herb Johnson Special
Herb Johnson Special
I have had excellent success with this streamer in the Rangeley region, especially on the Kennebago and Magalloway rivers and at Upper Dam.
Indian Puddle
Indian Puddle
The late Adirondack tyer Ed Bendl's gorgeous bucktail. This one is a real looker.
Kelly Bill Bucktail
Kelly Bill Bucktail
A New York pattern that works well anywhere, it's not just for the Adirondacks or Catskills. Give it a try!
Kennebago Special
Kennebago Special
Supposedly this was Bill Edson's favorite streamer. I happen to like it a lot as well. An additional benefit from the metal eyes besides the added flash is that the extra weight imparts a nice darting action to the fly.
Mansfield
Mansfield
I know of a few dressings for this pattern. The one I tie and use personally comes from Perrault's Standard Dictionary of Flies.
MIller's River Special
MIller's River Special
Designed by Paul Kukonen.
New Hampshire

I saw Mike Martinek displaying this fly at a show once. Loved the copper body and overall coloration and it has become one of my favorite fall streamers for landlocked salmon on the West Branch of the Penobscot river and Grand Lake stream.
One-Eyed Poacher
One-Eyed Poacher
Before you ask, yes, the eye is intentionally only painted on one side of the fly! Designed by Bob Upham for Grand Lake stream.
Parmachenee Belle
Parmachenee Belle
Featherwing version of the old classic. I can also tie this as a bucktail which is very effective.
Pink Lady

Quebec Sapphire
Quebec Sapphire
A beautiful Mike Martinek casting streamer. I really like the flat wing streamers for the way they swim in the water and the profile they give.
Senator Muskie
Senator Muskie
I've had nice luck with this fly in northern Aroostook county waters. It's usually tied in larger trolling sizes but I prefer it in a small casting streamer.
Shufelt Special
Shufelt Special
Sometimes called a Mickey 'Bou or Mickbou, a great attractor pattern originated by Bobby Shufelt of Greenville, ME. Both landlocks and brookies on the East Outlet love this fly.
Stout's Fall Muddler
Stout's Fall Muddler
Not just for fall fishing, try it during springtime. This was also a fantastic fly for me in Labrador, wish I had brought more than two!
"33"
"33"
A nice attractor or brook trout imitation. Another fine fly created by Bob Upham.
Tomah Joe
Tomah Joe
Named for the old Grand Lake stream Indian guide. There is also another variant from Bob Upham for GLS similar to a Silver Doctor that I can tie for you as well.
Welch Rarebit
Welch Rarebit
Herb Welch pattern. This fly is even featured in the old "Dud Dean" Maine guide story "And the Deal was off" by Arthur MacDougall and accounts for a lunker squaretail to the net.
West Grand Ghost
West Grand Ghost
A wonderful little streamer. I tied a dozen of these once from a sample fly for a gentleman who fished them on West Grand lake. Never knew the name so I named it for where he fished. If you recognize the pattern and know it's original name please drop me a line!
White Supervisor
White Supervisor
A slightly different take on the original, this streamer has white instead of the traditional green hackles.
Wood Special
Wood Special
When I took my wife fly fishing for the first time on Big and Little Frost ponds, I wanted to make sure she caught her first brook trout. This was the first and only fly I tied on her leader that day (and she did catch fish). That shows you how much faith I have in this streamer on Maine brook trout ponds. $3.25
