Superman Fly

In spirit of Superman being played in theaters right now, we present you with an awesome fly inspired by our superhero. It is definitely an attractor nymph, don't even know what it represents. But, we can assure it catches fish. First saw this on Fly Tyer Magazine and I became sceptical and tied it myself. Sure enough, I was proven wrong. Creator of this fly is Vince Wilcox and he's becoming more and more our favorite tyer. Try it for yourself & you'll be a believer again of Superman!!!!

Please like, comment, subscribe and most emportantly... ENJOY! :)

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.
