Over on Don Bastian's blog, don has posted a couple of great articles on selecting hackles for feather-wing / Rangeley style streamers. You can read part 1 here and part 2 here.

I've also found a few Wendell Folkin's streamers on auction that may be of interest to some of the readers. they are a bit on the pricey side, but each is a nice piece of streamer history.

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.
