Notes: Scott drew on the colours in the MacTavish Red tartan to create the 4 streamer in his Tartan Series. The modern MacTavish Red tartan is primarily red with light blue and black. Scott used a traditional east coast salmon fly presentation for the streamer, and we hope to see the design fished on the eastern salmon rivers next fall.

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.
