Notes: This is the forth streamer in Tom's series created to honor the brave members of the United States military. For the project, Tom had created hairwing versions of all of his patterns that were originally tied as featherwing flies. This pattern is Tom's tribute to the military's largest and oldest branch. The original featherwing used white bucktail in the belly and the body was bound in gold tinsel. The black and gold is well represented in the fly, and throat is a respectable splash of color in the pattern.

"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.
