52_4 AuSable Queen

AuSable Queen.jpg

Designed for the Grannom hatch from May through the 1st week in July. Historical note: This is a little known pattern of Ann Schweigert. It never received any publicity. The pattern is from the 1950’s. It is an off shoot of the Au Sable King. The only difference is the green egg sac and the white deer hair wing. This pattern has been confirmed by Mr. Dan Rivard. Dan is a professional tier who actually did some tying for Ann, at Jack’s Rod & Fly Shop once she retired in 1978. Tier: Tom Deschaine Contributor: Dan Rivard.
