Notes: As much as it sounds like an unfortunate accident with a wayward back cast and an unsuspecting passer-by, the Cut Lips streamer is actually named for one of the minnows Mr. Oatman studied. The Cut Lips is one of the famous imitator patterns Mr. Oatman originated, and included the distinctive tapered body Mr. Oatman is famous for. The cut lips minnow is a dark colored one and has a range that includes the famous Battenkill in Vermont and New York state's Ausable River. The streamer is most successful in the habitat of the minnow, that being rapid flows, whitewater and beneath falls.

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.
