i’ve always liked this name. it sounds primal, prehistoric, powerful and psexy.
Wanda (/ˈwɒndə/ won-də; Polish pronunciation: [ˈvanda])
is a female given name of Polish origin. It probably derives from the tribal name of the Wends. The name has long been popular in Poland where the legend of Princess Wanda has been circulating since at least the 12th century. In 1947 Wanda was cited as the second most popular name, after Mary, for Polish girls, and the most popular from Polish secular history. The name is popularly interpreted as meaning “wanderer.”
this hot-off-the-vise streamer pattern by Kris Keller via FlyFishingTheOzarks looks like it’ll be super-steamy wanderer for any fish that wants a nice seductive mouthful.
as Kris says: “A very cool little single-hook pattern. In the right color-combo and size, I believe this fly could catch every species of game fish in the world.” and i don’t doubt that for a second and i’m sure you won’t either after seeing the way it swims.
simple to make and rather inexpensive (as far as modern streamers go), tie them as in the tutorial or like the featured variants and as always smaller or bigger to suit your particular needs. enjoy!
