Tying the CB Stocker Streamer

Producer: Tim Flagler

Authored by New Jersey tier Chally Bates when he was just fourteen years old, the CB Stocker was created specifically to catch stocked trout.  “Chally is now somewhere north of 70,” says Tim Flagler, “and the pattern he created all those years ago continues to produce.”

Here Flagler ties the pattern on a size 10 Dai-Riki #700 streamer hook.  He includes helpful tips on wetting marabou before tying it in, and using a rotary vise to wrap mylar tinsel.
