Notes: Cory based the design of the Hilton Boss from the world famous Silver Hilton. The Silver Hilton is quite an effective fly for steelhead on the Babine River in British Columbia, Canada. The Hilton Boss inherited some aspects of its predecessor and has incorporated new materials to improve the durability and visibility. The fly is one of Cory's go to flies for casting to bull trout, brook trout and big rainbow trout. It has also been proven to work very well trolling amongst other lures with fantastic results when migrating smolts and fry patterns are on the menu. Cory built the fly in 2001 right after a posting at the Babine counting fence at the outflow of Nilkitkwa Lake, on the Babine river.

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.
