Gray Wolf's Llama Hair Chapman's Smelt Recipe

Notes: The Gray Wolf's Llama Hair Chapman's Smelt streamer is another pattern from the series of streamers Gray Wolf has developed using llama hair in the wing. Llama hair was used in place of marabou in a number of patterns based on it's movement, water absorption and durability. The pattern was intro ducted to the line of streamers in 2005 and was intended to be an imitative pattern to drive big fish wild. The colours blend beautifully when they get wet and the layered flash embedded into the wing give the fly some extra life and glint in the light.

… 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.
