Green Butt Skunk

The Green Butt Skunk is a classic steelhead fly developed by Dan Callahan on the North Umpqua River. The Green Butt Skunk can be dressed heavy or sparse, depending on the time of year and river conditions. The Green Butt Skunk has fooled many steelhead over the years, and continues to be favorite for many steelhead fisherman. Most anglers love the Green Butt Skunk because it is easy to cast and to tie...and it catches fish of course! Don't leave the steelhead cabin with out one!

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.
