Zoo Cougar

The Zoo Cougar is a streamer pattern invented by streamer guru Kelly Galloup. The Zoo Cougar is a unweighted streamer pattern, designed to be fished on a heavy sinking line. The Zoo Cougar has a specific flat, bullet shaped head, which causes the fly to dodge back and forth as it is stripped. This action imitates a injured or dying baitfish and is deadly for big brown trout! The Zoo Cougar can be tied in many different colors with Yellow, Olive, White, Black and Olive being the most popular.

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.
