Green GP is a colorful version of the famous General Practictioner tied by contributing fly tyer, Swedish fly fisherman and tyer, Tobbe Hedin. The green color is one that has proven successful for Tobbe's Seatrout, but is also a color preferred by our Pacific Salmon and Steelhead. I have no doubt it would be equally successful here.

Tobbe's comments about this fly: "This fly is Green version of the famous GP so I just called it "Green GP". Hope you like it! This is a spring pattern! On sunny days in any water it’s a killer! But don’t forget it at home any time at the year. "
