Green Highlander

One of the most famous creators of classic salmon flies was Dr. T. E. Pryce-Tannat, who in his book “How To Dress Salmon Flies” from 1914 presented a fly he called The Green Highlander - that fly has become one of the most well known patterns in the world of salmon flies. This pattern comes in many varieties, more or less complicated – but common to all is the grass-green body of either wool, floss silk or dubbing and the warm-yellow front hackle. This fly has kept its popularity through time, and in clear water it is still a very popular pattern. In this video we have had the skilled flytyer and salmon fisher Casper Hansen to tie his modern version of the old time classic... with a twist.

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.
