Notes: Barry received a frantic call from a lodge owner one night requesting a Fire Tiger colored fly. The lodge guides and clients were cleaning house fishing for trout on the lake using Fire Tiger lures. Barry sat down at the vise and got to work. This is the pattern that Barry came up with on the request, and as expected, the bucktail preformed well in the field. Barry asked the lodge owner to come up with a name for the pattern and to let him know when he arrived in the fall so he could put the name on the packages, but no moniker was ever decided upon and so they were sold without an name. In addition to being a stellar trout streamer, the fly has been popular with walleye in the lake.

Barry, I definitely like this pattern. I bet it will even work on Bass! All of the major fish attracting colors in one package. A working man's streamer!

Barry If you allow me I take the audacity to suggest a name for this fly, "good vision", because these lures attract the fish much ...good luck.

… 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.
