Vintage Streamers http://globalflyfisher.com/streamers/vintage/ Vintage Flies: I saw a post by Ted Patlen on a fly tying bulletin board. It was a simple post - a photo of a group of flies and a short statement stating his intention of tying the flies as close as possible to the way the originator tied the flies. His post stuck with me for awhile, before I got up the gumption to send him an email asking if he would be interested in submitting his flies to GFF for an article Click here to read more.

This fly is one I developed after reading about euphausiid pattern that a fellow tyer angler tied and fished successfully for Coho Salmon in Puget Sound. This fly is a little different but substantially the same effect as his – and this fly has earned its keep here offshore Oregon of late.

Pike on the fly in Ireland http://globalflyfisher.com/video/pike-fly-ireland
See video in full resolution
May 2014. We're back in Ireland for a week of pike on the fly from the belly boat. Strong winds from the East and cold temperatures is not exactly ideal pike weather. We get wet and cold, but hold on and fish many lakes. The few strikes we get are heart warming and the pike we catch are mostly good ones. When that happens we wouldn't want to be anywhere else doing anything else... We managed to get some great Go Pro shots of jumping and hard fighting Irish pike.]]>

BaR: Parts http://globalflyfisher.com/rodbuilding/build-a-fly-rod/part-1.php#41363 Gilles, Le Pêcheur de Mouche Mondial? That would be something! But it's not going to happen, I'm afraid. Your best chance is too feed our pages into Google Translate. It won't be perfect, but maybe easier to understand. This page looks like this in automated French. Martin

Everyday Fly Tying Tips http://globalflyfisher.com/tiebetter/tips/index.php#41356 Try looking on Ebay for your Jungle Cock cape; but instead of looking under fly tying materials try looking under feathers for making jewelry. I tried this on a whim and wound up getting a beautiful #1 cape for $100.00. Lesser capes in the fly tying materials section were going for at least what I paid and most had bids on them. I was the only one who bid on the one I got.

This is "Rocky" the flying squirrel. Most of the materials that were used to make this fly came from a gray squirrel, except for the hook, wings, eyes and thread. I used size 12 dry fly hook; black 6/0 thread; wings were from a Mallard duck; the eyes were clear halographic 1/4 inch. I ran this fly through my home made swim tank (see You Tube for my video on how to build your own swim tank for $40.00 US). This fly swam perfectly with a lot of action. http://globalflyfisher.com/pix/display.php?code=904346615090

The Other Side Of The Bridge http://globalflyfisher.com/pix/display.php?code=c4db1b96a9a5
Photographer: Don Paradise ]]>
This fly is called the Green Hobbit. Built on a size 12 430 multi purpose curved hook. The body was made by using the fuzz or bottom part of an olive guinea feather, opening the thread and placing the stripped feather fibers between the threads and closing the thread forming a dubbing loop. I took two turns around the shank and tied in a small white hackle feather. The dubbing loop was palmered forward and the the white feather was palmered forward over the olive dubbing loop. I took about ten green tinted fibers from a mallard duck feather and tied them onto to each side of the shank. Then dubbed more fibers using the olive "fuzz" and wrapped four more turns around forward. The thread was tied off with 4 or 5 whip finish knots. I used two gold halographic eyes and finished the head off using Loon's UV thin finish. http://globalflyfisher.com/pix/display.php?code=ee454de3cc18

This Pike tube fly was built on a rigid white medium size tube. The length of the tube was 5/8". A size 10 tube hook was slid into the rear end of the tube without the use of a hook tube. I used more colorful feathers to attract the Pike. http://globalflyfisher.com/pix/display.php?code=4e30ef753997
