Barred and Black

This pattern and others can be found in Lefty Kreh's Saltwater Fly Patterns Amazon
Amazon UK
Inspired by Dan Blanton's Whistler, Ed Givens designed the Barred & Black for striped bass but it has since proven its worth all over the world for everything from musky to murray cod. I think it really should be thought of more as a colour option than a pattern in its own right, it lends itself well to whistler, thing and river pig platforms.

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.
