Great streamer.
I love the shoulder, it works so well with the rest of the fly.

Beautiful tie, Darren. To this day, I'm attached to the Hippie ideals, and music especially.

Thanks for all the great comments on the streamer! She loved it, and I've got a get me out of jail free card now.

… 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.
