Notes: The Silver Doctor is an iconic streamer and fly that has taken many forms over the decades. The Silver Doctor dates back to the 1800's and the traditions of the British angling culture. Dan has been experimenting with style over the past few years and has developed a distinct style with some of his streamers and incorporated the elements of the Silver Doctor into the fold.

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.
