Andy's Smelt
Andy's Smelt
An obscure but very good smelt streamer, essentially it's a flatwing Blue Smelt.
Earl's Gray Smelt
Earl's Gray Smelt
If I was limited to just one smelt pattern for spring fishing, well, that wouldn't be any fun! However, this pattern would probably be it. You should see it when it gets wet and slicked down, it looks just like the real thing!
Jim's Smelt
Jim's Smelt
Created by Jim Bernstein. The next time you're near Eldridge Brother's Fly Shop in Cape Neddick, ME stop in and get one directly from the source!
Kennebago Smelt
Kennebago Smelt
Sometimes dark smelt flies like this or the 9-3 are just the ticket.
Marabou Smelt
Marabou Smelt
Smelts on the West Branch have a bluish sheen to them. This streamer replicates that very well.
Massawippi Smelt
Massawippi Smelt
A good dark day smelt streamer.
Pink Floyd

A popular smelt imitation on the East Outlet of the Kennebec.
Stout's Floating Smelt
Stout's Floating Smelt
Designed by Ray Stout. It's also referred to as the West Branch Dry Fly and essentially the only foam fly I tie or use. $4.50
Wholly Ghost
Wholly Ghost
Bob Upham's Grand Lake stream killer. The spartan simplicity is perfection itself for a streamer on hard-fished waters like GLS. This fly has everything you need and nothing you don't.
Winnipesaukee Smelt
Winnipesaukee Smelt
New Hampshire pioneer Jim Warner's outstanding streamer. A staple smelt pattern for me and lots of other successful fishermen since 1957. My favorite smelt streamers favor marabou for the wings which Jim incorporated into and helped to popularize in his famous original patterns.
