Fat Albert

The Fat Albert is a high floating and life-like hopper pattern. Made with 3 layers of foam, the Fat Albert floats in fast runs and pocket water. The Fat Albert can be tied in may different colors, such as black, tan/brown, tan/pink, tan/yellow and just about any combo you can think of! The Fat Albert is best fished near the bank and makes a great pattern for hopper/dropper techniques! A fun and fairly easy hopper to tie!

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.
