Fish on!

First of the season

Like Martin said recently work has been kicking my butt. I have managed to get out a couple times for a few hours each, but so far have come away without much to say as far as the fishing. We've had a very wet and cold Spring season.

This past weekend, I got to spend a day floating around on a lake chasing pike and bass. NY has recently changed its regulations regarding bass and it is now possible to chase them in the spring on a C&R basis. This is the first smallmouth bass I have landed in a couple years, and hopefully not the last. I plan on finding some new smallmouth haunts in the stream near home this summer.

I had forgotten how strongly these fish fight. It as if they want to tear the rod right out of your hand. Amazing creatures, these smallmouth bass.

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.
