Notes: Lauren's Favorite is a classic pink pattern. Every flybook should carry a pink streamer pattern. When trout queue in on pink, nothing is better. This pattern is tyed with "girly" pink not "hot" pink. Pink streamers work very well in the mountain lake region. Al's friend Wally Lutz clued him into the importance of pink in streamers years ago, and this pattern is a result of his recommendations.

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.
