During a trip for sea trout (one caught while NOT recording), I mused a bit about knots and copyright. These two things stick together like peas in a pod here on GFF, because our knot section with text and drawings is the most illegally copied part of the site.

For some reason people seem to think that they can lift article right off our pages and onto their own.

I hate it when that happens!

We spend a lot of time (and money, actually) on building and running the Global FlyFisher, and you are NOT supposed to use ANYTHING from the site for non-personal use without asking first.
You are welcome to link to our site. You can quote within limits and you can print for your own benefit as much as you please. But you cannot lift off material and use it ANYWHERE without asking and getting permission first.

In the podcast I get some air regarding this matter, talk about the knots I use and have about 100 strikes (well, many at least) from garfish, but catch none.

Thank you for this nice comment. Yes, we anglers are indeed more alike around the world than most people think. My numerous contacts with anglers from other countries have always told me that the are more similarities than differences. Mostly we seem to click in a common interest not only for fly fishing.
