I'm the next candidate, Martin

I've been "reading" for a few years and GFF has never been anything less than impressive. Rich content and plenty of it. Cheers!

I agree with the opax. Knowing the GFF staff, I figure it's just a matter of time before they get that feature back online.

Cheers

I guess this is more for Martin, but I can load everything on the site with a very fast response except for the forum. It's sometimes 10 seconds before I get a response. I would blame the forum database, since the static pages and even the gallery pages load amazingly fast. It seems like there is a DNS timeout trying to resolve the database server before it checks the host file, something like that.

Of course, you probably already know this. Rolling Eyes

Cheers

I agree with some thoughts:

1. GFF is the best Flyfishing site worldwide

2. Everlasting success for GFF!

3. I want a cap too!

4. Forum Meister: Please do something to avoid this forum to fall in the underworld! This is the greatest chance Flyfishers around the world have to "Globalize"!! I don't know, a highly visible link on the frontpage, some kind of advertiising...

Thanks again Martin, Bob & Co.!!!

You rule!!

Cool, you fixed it *and* put the last posts on the home page. That rocks.

Thanks, Martin. Wink

Mike,

Yup. Fooled around with a module for the forum yesterday, and even though it was not as simple as in the old one, I got it to work in the end.

Regarding the forum and database response time you may be right. The system has to shift between two databases (but on the same server) when going from GFF in general to the forum and back and this can take time... but several seconds seems to be way too much. I'll see what I can do. Haven't seen the problem myself. Can you see in your status line in the browser what it's trying to read when it sticks?

Martin

It seems much faster since this weekend. I think you fixed it while you were messing around elsewhere. If it slows down again, I'll let you know where.

Being a website owner as well, I am fully aware of the amount of work required to keep a website current and popular. Martin and his colleague have certainly employed their dedication, effort and time to keep both the content and the layout of Global Flyfisher appealing. Congratulations on what you have accomplished and I look forward to see what GFF brings to the readers in the future. Smile

I'm back in Copenhagen again in May and June, looking forward to connecting with some garfish, pike, brown trout and grayling. Very Happy

Best regards,

The latter of the above species you'll have to visit Jylland.
Unfortuantely no thymallus thymallus exist near to Copenhagen or the surrounding area. But I guess you already knew that?
Did you already know that?
Of course you did...
Good hunting never-the-less and keep us posted.
O yeah Martin...Awaiting the Bornholm article, pictures and latest skunked figures as if life depended on it.

As Ripley told you, you rather should take to Jylland instead. You're welcome to visit me in Holstebro. Except the garfish, you can catch the three other species 1,5 kilometers from my place in the same river and at nearly the same place in a river called Storå. For the garfish you have to drive 20 kilometers to Struer and the area around the Oddesund bridge.
If you are interested in a guide and a place to stay, just drop me a line.

Kind regards, Michael

Greetings from Finland!

I would like first of all thank you for the Great site, absolutely best fly fishing site I know. I have visited here since '97 I think when it was Fishing Denmark. I remember that I printed out some fly recipes in work because I didint have internet connection home Smile Since then I have been visiting here often and check out if there something interesting to read, and yes many times there is.

So long life to the Global Fly Fisher, hope that you will keep up the good work!

I'm also upkeeping fly fishing site in Finnish, you dont understand a word, but maybe you would like to check out some pictures from our gallery, there is 4791 pics at the moment from Finland and some from other coutries too.

Have a nice summer and tight lines! Smile
