Notes: Sebago Lake is one of Maine's deepest waters and has served as military flight training area at one point in its life with several aircraft lost in it's depths. The abysmal waters of the Sebago hold a population of Altantic salmon left behind when the last major glaciers retreated. At one point, the entire watershed was submerged in the ocean waters. As the land rose and the saltwater retreated, a population of the Salmo salar became permanent residents. This is wonderful for the anglers who remain to chase after them and has been a destination for anglers hungry for the tug of these top aquatic predators. Bill uses a variant hackle dyed red in the wing that gives the streamer a wonderful uniqueness. If you aren't lucky enough to have some variant, black laced hackle dyed red may be a good substitute.

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.
