John Barr's Meat Whistle

For this tutorial, I chose a great streamer that is known to catch large fish. Using a barbless jig nymph hook from Allen Fly Fishing (, I varied the colors of John Barr's original slightly to create this "Meat Whistle." Enjoy learning how to tie this pattern, and feel free to leave any comments/questions here or email me:

Since you got this far …

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through Patreon or Ko-fi. Both offer PayPal payments.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
