Notes: This is another of Dave's conversion series streamers using a wet fly found in Ray Bergman's Trout. The fly is named after the Algonquin name for Lake Sunapee. Soo-Nipi is translated as "Wild Goose Waters", named so for the large numbers geese that make a rest stop during migration each year. Dave's conversion adheres closely to the original wet with the exception that the blue is tied in the beard position in the wet fly.

… 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.
