GFF Survived!

Some of you may have noticed that it’s been awfully quiet here lately. Covid was here…

Late April I was diagnosed with Covid-19 and last week of April and until now, mid-May, I – and with me the Global FlyFisher – have suffered pretty badly. It’s been a really, really rough round with fever, lack of breath, lack of energy, lack of appetite and all kinds of misery.
This is the first day in several weeks that I’m up and at the keyboard, and I thought I’d do a little catch up. There’s a to of things that need to be done. Users to register, videos to publish and whatnot.

I’ll get there slowly, and even start publishing the material that I have waiting.

Have patience.

An update December 2021: I've been fine for a long time now, got my two first Covid-shots, and have managed to dodge both Delta and Omicron until now. I'll take the third shot as soon as it's offered to me. I'm not going through the above again if I can avoid it, and I'll recommend everybody else to take the offer of the vaccine.
Thanks for all the well-whishes, which still keep coming, even now, moths after I got well.



So glad to hear you are recovering! I am sure that I am just one among many who appreciate what you have created here and painstakingly maintained over the years. Thank you, and hope you are back to full strength soon, friend!

Good to hear!...

Good to hear that you're back at it Martin. GFF is such a big part of my online reading and you've done an absolute great job at it over the years. Here's to your good health!

Good news...

Good hear that you are on the mend Martin. Stay positive!

Hi Martin...

Hi Martin
Sorry to hear about you having Covid19 but I'm glad that you are on the road to recovery. My daily fix of GGF is always such a mix of recent and archived articles that I don't think I really noticed a reduction in new articles lately. Anyways, thanks as always for your wonderful work and all the best for a full and speedy recovery.


Sad to read what you have been through. Thanks for the update and take care Martin.


HI Martin - Glad to hear you are on the mend. Thank you for all you do for the fly fishing world. We all appreciate this as the best and most informative website for our fly fishing community. God Bless,
Jack Harford

Since you got this far …

The GFF money box

… 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.
