Notes: Rainbow trout can be found in countless streams and rivers around the globe, and it's safe to say that a good portion of the eggs that hatch in these streams become nourishment for opportunistic predators. These fry and juvenile rainbow trout are often found in fast flowing waters and can be easy pickings for the larger residents and returning migratory fish which include larger class resident rainbow and migratory rainbow trout (steelhead). The pattern originally included a silver embossed tinsel body, but was eventually replaced with a few strands of pink crystal flash.

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.
