Green Highlander

Another beautiful, full dressed salmon fly from Italian Stefano Farkas. This time a Green Highlander.

My good (virtual) friend Stefano Farkas wrote me one of his regular mails with the usual attachment: a photo of a beautiful, full dressed salmon fly. This time a Green Highlander.
Stefano had been quiet for a period. He is a wine maker in Italy, and once the harvest starts, I guess that full dressed flies aren't the most important thing in his life.

Good morning Martin, I hope all is well.
The harvest is done since one month ago, the new wine is quietly aging in the casks and so I am able to start again tying.
Here is a really Classic, a Green Highlander from T.E.Pryce-Tannatt.
Hook: Harrison&Bartleet 9/0 E by Ronn Lucas.
Kind Regards,
Green Higlander

A real fly

Earlier this year, Stefano was kind enough to send me a very physical copy of one of his flies. Until then I had only seen their digital versions, but this one was a beautiful, framed version of his Christmas Carol, used for last year's Christmas greeting here on Global FlyFisher and now residing over my tying table IRL as they say - In Real Life.
Back then I wrote:

A fantastic present arrived a few days ago from my Italian (virtual) friend and master fly tyer Stefano Farkas.
After he has generously been sending me pictures of his beautiful full dressed salmon flies to publish on the Global FlyFisher, he - even more generously - decided to send a physical one!
So feast your eyes on this fantastic framed "Christmas Carol", tied by Stefano on an impressing 9/0 hand made hook.
This thing will look marvelous on the wall above my vise in the new office/fly tying room. Thanks Stefano!
Well wrapped

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

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.
