Pink & Tan Grayling Bug

The Arctic grayling is one of my favorite fishes to catch on the fly. They are gems and look as though they belong in the tropics rather than the cooler climates they are often found in. I fished for grayling quite a bit in Alberta and have had days where I was able to catch so many I wasn't able to keep count.

Pink is a great color for grayling, but I like to fish it somewhat subdued. While I have done well with glowing bright hot pink flies, the hint of pink feels right.

Since you got this far …

… I have a small favor to ask.

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.
