Yellow Mayfly

Eventhough the season for fishing the Yellow Mayfly or Heptagenia Sulphurea is over the fly can still fool the fish to rise to the surface and inhale this beautiful pattern. The tying in of the wing is quite unique and a obviously way to tie other sizes and color variations of dry flies - an easy to tie fly and combined with the cdc-fibres you will get a elegant yet super-floating pattern for the box.

We have had Hanna Bossow Vestergaard behind the vice and once again she makes magic behind the vice - the combination of female touch and matching nail-polish is apparently the keywords... ;-)

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.
