Streamers and Bucktails of the World: Their History and Variations Part III: The Reference Collection of Ora Smith Steve Cullen

                          While touring New Hampshire's Lakes Region a few years ago, an
                          impressive reference collection of streamers, compiled between
                          the late 1950s and the 1960s, came to my attention. The collection
                          once belonged to Ora Smith of Keene, New Hampshire, and with
                          the exception of  a few streamers that he had purchased for reference
                          and a few others that were tied by their originators or by one of his
                          friends, the majority had been tied by Smith. This article profiles 
                          Ora Smith and presents 242 flies and their dressings.
