Notes: The Silver Doctor is an old pattern dating back to the mid 1800's. The pattern caught favor in Scandinavia and North America not long after gaining access to the fly wallets of British anglers. The pattern was highly successful for luring salmon. Robert based his conversion on Mr. Wright's original pattern, keeping the body elements intact and sculpting a charming modern rendition.

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.
