George F. Grant's Black & Tan Featherback

Learn how to tie one of the most famous of Grant's Stonefly Nymphs, the Black & Tan featherback. This is advanced fly tying - and that is why we have unvited our friend John Lind Rasmussen to be guest tier. John is a master of classic fly tying and he has many years of experience with Grant's nymphs.
With the special weaving technique for the hackle and the beautiful glassy see-through body on these nymphs, there is plenty of challenges for the experienced fly tier.
Hope you enjoy it!

Cheers, Ulla and Michael

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.
