Tied by: Tom Fulton
Originated by: Tom Fulton

Hook: Mustad 3300 #7
Thread: White flat waxed nylon
Tag: Gold flat tinsel
Tail: Red, white, & blue goose shoulder
Butt: Peacock hurl
Body: Blue metallic thread corded
Rib: 2 strands off holographic gold flat tinsel (the space between the butt and body was intentional)
Belly: White buck tail over red and blue Krystal Flash

Notes: This is the second streamer in Tom's series created to honor the brave members of the United States military. Tom ventured out of his comfort zone and decided to give the pattern a married goose tail of red, white and blue, the colors of the United States Coast Guard. The Coast Guard has a number of roles including maritime homeland security, maritime law enforcement, search and rescue , marine environmental protection, and the maintenance of river, intracoastal and offshore aids to navigation.

"We owe our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines a debt of gratitude, and I thank you all for your service."

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.
