Notes: This streamer fly was created in June of 2009 when Selene was leading a Women's Fly Fishing School at Weatherby's in Grand Lake Stream, Maine. Prompted by lodge guide Jared Koengs, and in a creative state of mind, Selene put thought to hook and feather resulting in a traditional styled and quite Ghostly streamer. "There were a bizzillion mosquitos that weekend at Forth Lake where we were fishing, hence the name. The weekend was a memory maker for sure and this fly helps to remind me of it."

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.
