Fly fishing

Fly fishing is so exciting! This was my dad's second time fly fishing. We practiced casting, presentation, setting the hook and keeping a tight line a few times on the lawn.
The anticipation to get on the water was too great so we put our waders on and jumped in our float tubes. This was the Hex Hatch so things were likely to go crazy!

My dad was casting to rising trout that were cruising along the shallows, feeding on hex emergers and duns. He was using a size 8 foam hex dun which this trout found irresistable. Next thing you know....GAME ON!

The smile at the end says it all.

… 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.
