Notes: Bob found this imitative little casting streamer amongst the pages of The Mid-Altantic Flyfishing Guide, a free publication available to anglers in the Mid-Atlantic states along the eastern US coast. Mr. Floyd developed the Lake Erie Shiner to be fished as an imitative streamer, a notion that was struck after witnessing fishermen easily catching their limit using bait. While the original article was published with black and white photographs of the fly, it was seeing the flies in person that really piqued Bob's interest and helped tip the pattern into Bob's streamer box. Bob's instinct was correct, and the fly pattern has since become his favourite bucktail and a trusted streamer for lunker bass.

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.
