Notes: This is the third streamer in Tom's series created to honor the brave members of the United States military.

The original featherwing had a black ostrich collar behind the head and only used golden pheasant crest in the belly.

"We owe our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines a debt of gratitude, and I thank you all for your service."

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.
