Arctic Goblin

This very large streamer tied on a 4/0 hook is made specifically for pike, but large bass would hit this as well. This fly moves really nicely in the water, and has a lot of flash and bright colors. Also being tied with craft fur, it flows really nicely when moving. To keep the craft fur tail from fowling up on the hook, I tied a bit of buck tail underneath it since buck tail is a bit more stiff. Also, I tied a bit of Unique hair in between the craft fur because it doesn't hold water, and still adds lots of bulk without the weight. So you can tie this larger with it still staying cartable.

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.
