Notes: Alan tied up a beautiful little casting streamer created by Mike Martinek. The streamer has some definite tones of the Mickey Finn with it's layered yellow and orange wing. It has been accented with a beautiful streak of orange pheasant tippet out the back. The pattern comes from Mike's second volume of streamer patterns. The booklet has been out of print for a number of years, but Mike is planning on having it reprinted soon.

Thanks Dan.

The orange bucktail is in there, but it's very sparse and hard to see. The body is a braid material, and having a closer look, I don't think it's the Axxel Flash, but something similar. I'll check with Alan and update. Thanks for reading!

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.
