Notes: Steve created the Sebago Perch and it's variations in 2007 out of a need for an alternate bait fish imitation. When the natural smelt numbers plummeted, the game fish turned to the perch population in the lake to forage on. Steve put his many years of local knowledge and fishing experience to the vise and crafted this bright perch imitation. Steve also gives the nod to the Green Wonder as a streamer that was found to be productive after the spring smelts had run their course.

… 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.
