Notes: The Lioness Streamer is half of a pair of streamer Davie tied for the project. The pattern is full of rich earthy yellows and browns that melt into one another. The key to this being the sunburst dyed feathers Davie is so fond of. Davie prefers to dye over natural colored capes such as Cree, ginger and dun to create depth in the color palate of the streamer. It was Davie's better half who suggested the names for the pair of streamers. Davie's Lion will be featured sometime in December.

I agree with Jim. The name, colors, tones, are extremely beautiful. The name is a perfect one as well.

… 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.
