Tail: Scarlet macaw

Notes: George Faulkner and Mike drove trucks together for a number of years in Oregon. George was a recent retiree and had bought an RV with plans to begin a relaxing lifestyle of traveling the highways with his lady friend. Unfortunately the dream was cut short by a stroke shortly after his retirement. Mike thought it fitting to dedicate this streamer to his friend George. He choose the classic looking Mustad-Chestertown hook with a silk gut eye and a unique Guinea fowl feather, speckled not spotted, for the shoulder of the streamer.

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.
