Notes: The Deep Green Beauty has proved itself on both Atlantic and landlocked salmon to date. Obviously, its put together like many of the Stevens-style streamers, and Gary is happy to give all the attribution to the streamers that have gone before. Gary has changed up the colors and the "accutrements." Gary dyed a white Whiting saddle with a Jacquard acid dye combination, and came up with the color you see. The "underwing" is claret polar bear, and interesting contrast to the otherwise dark colors of the streamer. Gary says "My delightful (and very Irish) companion Bridget said, when she saw the chunk of polar bear and the saddle lying on the drying table, that they were great Celtic colors, and would look great together. Who am I to argue with that?".

Gary, love this version. Every time I hear the name of this fly, I think of you. The pattern is great, but I think it must be your favorite streamer of all time. You did a splendid job on this fly, love it!

… 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.
