Notes:

Larry has been tying a series of streamers based on tartans. (See Scott Murdock's Tartan Series also). The colors of the tartan appealed to him and so the fly was conceived. The clan was formed a confederation composed of the several clans. We will be showing more of Larry's Tartan Series streamers throughout the year.

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.
