The long-awaited book from authors Graydon Hilyard and Leslie Hilyard has been announced and is ready to hit shelves on December 1st, 2018. "Herbert L. Welch: Black Ghosts and Art in a Maine Guide's Wilderness", documents the infamous Maine outdoorsman and his many talents. In addition to boeing a talented fly tyer, Herbie is well-known as an artist, sculptor, taxidermist, fishing guide, and accomplished demo caster. Most modern fly tyers and anglers know Herb's iconic Black Ghost fly. The new book includes 9 streamer fly patterns that Herbie originated or adapted and tied. For streamer aficionados like myself who can't get enough of Carrie Stevens' streamers, the book also includes a collection of ten newly identified fly patterns originated and tied by her. The book is 200 pages and includes over 200 photographs.

The book can be pre-ordered from Amazon for $19.33US which is a huge discount off the 49.95 $MSRP. Make sure this title is on your wish list or treat yourself and get a copy for your library

… 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.
