How To Tie The Trophy Wife Streamer

By Joe Cermele

Though I get all fuzzy inside when a trout sips a dry fly or slurps a nymph on the swing, I will take the crushing blow of a big brownie slamming a streamer over the more dainty stuff any day. And the bigger and uglier the streamer, the more pumped I am to throw it. That's why I'm really digging Thomas Harvey's Trophy Wife...which just so happens to be tied in this video by Brian Weiss with help from his real trophy wife. Granted, there's about $40 worth of material in this bug, but it's dead sexy and there will be some Trophy Wives in my flybox before my next visit to the river. I particularly like this tying video because of the clear, concise portrayal of each material and step. Yeah, that's it. Let's go with that. Have a great weekend.

Joe,

Although the fly is of Harvey's design, the video was made by Brian Wise, of Fly Fishing the Ozarks, and his trophy wife Jennifer. They are awesome, wonderful people!
Check out the rest of his vids at his youtube page.

Hmm. Well, I guess "The Stimulator" was already taken.

That fly could be called the Zsa-Zsa G.

Got to be able to throw those big streamers using a bigger rod, and there are a whole lotta folks that can't do it. And you are primarily confined to low light conditions for it to be effective. Sun out in the Summer time from daylight to dawn is an exercise in futility. I still prefer lighter rods, and taking fish on dries. But do what works according to the conditions.
