The Canada streamer is another pattern from streamer tyer Alan "Alberta Al" Grombacher. The Canada is Alan's ode to the famous red and white daredevil spoon. It is also a fly tied to honour his adopted Country, Canada, which he loves dearly. The fly is a great streamer for mountain lakes and can be used as a casting streamer when tied on smaller sizes and as a trolling streamer in larger sizes.

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.
