Beautiful Fly

First off, this is a great tribute fly. Second, you can't go wrong with red and white. Fish love that combo. Beautiful tie to top it off. Well done.

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.
