Notes: The Rogan's Royal Gray Ghost is a idealization of Carrie Stevens' legendary Gray Ghost streamer. Rogan, an accomplished salmon fly dresser from New York City made an attempt to enhance the beauty of the Gray Ghost. He tied the streamer using many of the elements found on full dressed salmon flies while still keeping the feel of a streamer.

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.
