Kelly,
Thanks for the kind words.

I love the contrast of the orange body with the subtle color of the rest of the fly. Beautiful

Great stuff as always Alan. Beauties like this are almost too sweet to fish.

Alan, a fabulous job as usual. I just wanted to commend you on the head. All the streamers here are beautiful, but very few of the tyers have bothered to finish the heads nicely. Yours is an example to others of how it should look. Thanks for the great job!

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.
