Thread: Black 8/0
Body: Silver flat tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Wing: Chartreuse under light blue under purple bucktail

Notes: As a fly tyer in demand, Bill often gets requests for something special from his customers. The Salmon searcher started out as a request from a customer for bucktails to troll through the depths of Lake Champlain. Bill got raw bucktails to replenish his stock from his customer in exchange for the flies. His client is an avid deer hunter, and so he was able to trade quite a few whitetail deer tails. He wanted flies with different shades of blue and purple to mimic baitfish, and the Salmon Searcher was created to fit the bill.

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.
