On Thursday, December 7, AMFF Ambassador Scott Biron joined Curator Jim Schottenham for another educational look at the streamer fly. Scott is a popular attraction when presenting his instructional tying lessons at national, international, and regional shows. Scott and Jim discussed the history behind the streamer patterns of Ora Smith, the late New Hampshire tyer with an extensive streamer resume. Scott was also at his vise, showing us all how to tie one of Ora’s flies, the Purple Smelt.
