Notes: The Primary Attraction is one of several from a series of "Primary" flies designed by Ken in 2011. All of the streamers in the series use a red, yellow and blue color scheme, drawing on past creations such as the Footer's Special and Guide's Special. The red grizzly makes for nice parr marking on the side of the streamer and backed by the yellow provides a bright target for predators.

The GFF money box

… 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.
