Notes: Bill tied his rendition of the Renous Special on a massive #7/0 vintage Partridge low water salmon iron. The pattern is a local design named for both the originator and the Renous river. The Renous River is divided into two major branches, the North and the South, which join the Southwest Miramichi River at the village of Quarryville. The river is noted for it's run of Atlantic salmon which run from June to October. The fly is deadly smelt imitation for spring run salmon and steelhead and should be fished deep.

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.
