Here we will be tying the fly Overtaker that is some sort of an opposite fly from the Undertaker fly by John Don Gapen. The fly is a great option for both stream and lake fishing and has been used as a streamer as well. It's a salmon pattern in general but it will also attracht fish like seatrout and even the Arctic char. Overtaker is a slightly different from the Undertaker fly but both of them work great. The Overtaker is relatively new fly and could be exciting to let it swim for the salmon in your rivers and lakes.

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.
