And we were there, in the mountains.

In the second installment of our Autumn series we spent a couple of days camping on the Deerfield River in the Berkshires. The first day brought unrelenting rain and general dreariness. We made a feeble attempt at chucking streamers to semi entheused fish, and managed to pick up a few here and there, but there was an itch that still desperately needed to be scratched. Suddenly, as if the dry fly gods themselves had spoken, the sky parted and the sun came over the mountain tops. As the late afternoon shifted into evening, Isonychia the size of Apache helicopters started dive-bombing the gin clear waters. The fish responded, as did we, and it turned into a trip to remember.

… 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.
