The Pearly Daddy is one of our most popular deadly fishing patterns, used equally throughout the season. Its gold head helps this fishing fly to sink deeper into the water column, where larger trout tend to swim. Fish this fly pattern in twitches to make the back legs pulsate, which grabs the attention of nearby trout.

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.
