    thank you for the link to Streamer 365, nice to see a Seattle based pattern on that site.

    Do you know what the hook was for the original pattern, for use in Puget Sound?

    Thank you

    Jeff,
    I don't know what hook was used. Mustad? Not sure what the sw hook of choice was in ps in that time. Preston probably knows.

    Jeff,
    I looked up the Lambuth "Candlefish" in the book "Streamers and Bucktails - The Big Fish Flies" by Joeseph D. Bates Jr.
    Other than mentioning that the hook used was "long shank" I was unable to find any mention of a specific hook. Sizes 6 and 8 for Cutthroat sound about right. For salmon, sizes of 2/0 and 3/0 are mentioned as well as tandem and trailing hook arrangements.
