Liggett Special Bucktail

I first saw this fly pattern years ago while reading an article on Global Fly Fisher written by Mike Martinek. http://globalflyfisher.com/streamer-guests-streamers/mike-martineks-rang... Mike stated that he preferred to fish the Liggett Special over the Mickey Finn and claimed it as one of his all-time favorite bucktails. The bucktail was named for one Mr. Liggett, a Hathaway Shirt Co foreman.

It is easy to see the resemblance to the famous Mickey Finn bucktail.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

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.
