Circus Peanut Variation

The Swedish “Big-Streamer-Dude” par excellence Andreas Andersson, sat down behind the vice for the current edition of “Tie Hard” to offer his variation of “The Circus peanut”. This articulated streamer was originally conceived by Russ Maddin, a renowned fly fisherman and guide from Michigan. Big flies - big fish, at least if Russ has his way - and he knows his stuff.

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.
