Super Fiber (royal blue & white) (blood red for gill, and hot pink for under belly)

Krystal Flash (blue)

Yeah, you could call it "The Beard" only problem being, only real men, with real beards, would be able to tie it. It could be the next fly tying hit, and go viral.

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.
