US Air Force - Official Colors are Blue, Black, and Sliver

Notes: This is the last streamer in Tom's series created to honor the brave members of the United States military. For the project, Tom had created hairwing versions of all of his patterns that were originally tied as featherwing flies. The official blue, black and silver Air Force colors dominate Tom's design with igneous red and gold pheasant feathers placed to give the illusion of flight.

"We owe our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines a debt of gratitude, and I thank you all for your service."

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.
