Black Prince

The Black Prince is a classic Steelhead fly pattern thought to have been developed around 1880. While there is no one tyer credited with the origin of this steelhead fly, it is thought to have evolved from a basic all-black design. Trey Combs notes that the fly pattern is a good alternative to the popular Black Gordon fly pattern.

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.
