Notes: It's hard to surmise where the name for the pattern could have originated as Carrie didn't provide much in the way of notes on many of her creations. But if I were to go out on a limb, I would guess that the wing color may play a role in it. The All Orange is one of the first Carrie Stevens patterns I started tying when I began my love affair with the long hook. It is a simple streamer, but one that you can use to hone your streamer tying skills on.

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.
