Here we will be tying the fly Metallica by mr. Pétur Steingrímsson, a friend of mine. Metallica is like an outstanding fly for fishing salmon here i Iceland and it's used all over the land. The Metallica has also caught sea run trout. I got in contact with Pétur few months ago and we made fly swap - 10 for 10. That's always fun to do. Enjoy this fly Metallica by one of our legendary fly dressers mr. Pétur Steingrímsson. Simple to tie and totally worth to keep few in your box when go fishing.

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.
