Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer 6xl
Thread: Black 8/0
Tag: Silver flat tinsel
Body: Wine yarn
Rib: Silver flat tinsel
Throat: Black hackle fibers

Head: Black

Notes: Fly tyers get their inspiration for pattern in many ways. For some, it is the natural prey items of the trophies they seek, for others, a memory of a favorite lake or river. Alan garnered his inspiration for the Silver Badger from a particularly beautiful Whiting silver badger saddle. We can all be glad in the knowledge that Alan happened upon this saddle and was so inspired to create this graceful classically styled 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.
