Lifeboat Dun

The Lifeboat Dun is a great dry fly option for fish that have become a bit selective during a mayfly hatch. It floats well, offering a realistic footprint & silhouette which is enough to tempt the fussiest of fish in rivers and still waters.

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.
