Notes: The name lends a playful and spin on Carrie's streamers and a glimpse into her personality. The fly itself is an adaptation from the Carrie's Special and named for her cocker spaniel of the same name. This has cemented Carrie's companion's name into the modern streamer aficionado's lexicon.

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.
