Notes: The pattern is a tribute to a cat named Piccaso that passed away in 2015. The colors in the pattern reflect the colors she had in her coat, and of course the pink throat is tied for her nose. Over the years, she had contributed to several dubbing mixes which were tied into nymph patterns. These flies caught a good deal of Arctic grayling and trout which she was offered a share.

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.
