Dave Georgia, Charles Mann and Ed Muzeroll had all gotten together, and Dave had the idea to create a fly for the Maine Game Warden Service. He asked Charles Mann to come up with a design and to prototype it. Charles went to work and designed an Atlantic Salmon fly in a traditional hairwing using the Maine Game Warden's uniform colors. Ed then used those as the basis to design and tie the Maine Game Warden Fly in the full dressed salmon fly pattern which Charles doesn't tie. As an off shoot of that Charles took the original design and converted the fly to a feather-wing streamer, the Maine Game Warden Streamer Fly.

… 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.
