Notes: Tuomas approaches his streamer design by examining the patterns of other tyers and how they use color and form to get the desired results. The Black Inspector was developed with trout in mind and was put together specifically to be fished in the waning light of summer evenings. It was after testing several combination that the wood duck flank and the black and yellow wing was decided upon. Welcome to the site Tuomas, and thank you for sharing your talents with us.

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.
