It's been some time since I've posted any Ebay items, but there is a nice range of items coming up recently.

First up is a rare Lew Oatman streamer. It is a Bill Edson pattern, the Edson Dark Tiger, one of the most famous of the bucktail streamers. The fly is carded and the glassine is intact.

Another great item is this hard to find Jack Gartside "The Soft Hackle Streamer" booklet and a soft hackle leech.

We've seen a number of Bob Bibeau's streamers tied up by Steve Labrecque for the 2013 project, but it is quite rare to see one come onto the auction block. We are lucky to see his pattern "Rain" on the card for sale.

The Carrie Stevens Day booklets come up for auction on occasion, but they are becoming more and more rare. They are a nice piece of memorabilia to have included in a collection of streamers.

Lastly i found an interesting old Mustad hook. It is in the family of the 1/2 inch longer hook shanks (3665a and 9575), but this is a barbless model I have not seen in the past. It still features a limerick bend, but would give any streamer a unique look.

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.
