Cy-Clone

 

 

This month's fly is the Cy-Clone. This fly was originated by Cy Eastlake a long time Rangeley resident and guide. The story goes that one day he was fishing on an area river and he found a fly wallet. When he opened it up, it was full of white hackle streamer similar to a Black Ghost. He started using them and caught some fish, so he started tying them, too. His friends suggested that he should give it a name. He decided that since it was a clone of what he found it would be named the Cy-clone.
