An excellent web site indeed....

Recent threads are no longer visible in front page of the GFF site. I’m afraid that the new Forum can go more or less unnoticed though…

Hi,
I've recently registered and begun reading all the interesting information, here. It\'s a great site, and hopefully, the new forum set-up will encourage a lot of use and exchange of ideas.

My best,

I've enjoyed the information...

I've enjoyed the information on this site for a few years now and have had many of the wallpapers up on my desktop. I particularly like the international flavor of this site and with the new forum, the sharing of info from all around the world should be great.

I know there once was GFF...

I know there once was GFF hats made, but aparently it didn't work out.. Anyway, I know this is a pretty good site to get custom hats and shirts made through:http://www.cafepress.com/ . I don't know if it makes any sense, or if it is worth it, but i would definitly buy one.

and other expenses on the site turned out to be a very slow business. And the people who ordered were spread all over the world and it cost us a fortune in postage.

We could consider doing another batch, but we'd probably have to take in orders before having them produced and have people pay the full postage for them. But we certainly have a lot more people visiting the site today, and might actually make some money to cover expenses.

I'll discuss it with the guys

GFF Hat...

Hi Martin,

You can add my name to the list for a GFF hat. Mine is about to fall to pieces... :?

Enuff said

I'm the next candidate,...

I'm the next candidate, Martin
and I'm sure there's more than enough others too to cover your costs...

I've been "reading" for a few years and GFF has never been anything less than impressive. Rich content and plenty of it. Cheers!

* Oh, and if hats (or any other GFF materials) come to light, count me in.

Slow?...

I guess this is more for Martin, but I can load everything on the site with a very fast response except for the forum. It's sometimes 10 seconds before I get a response. I would blame the forum database, since the static pages and even the gallery pages load amazingly fast. It seems like there is a DNS timeout trying to resolve the database server before it checks the host file, something like that.

Of course, you probably already know this. :roll:

Cheers

YEAH!...

I agree with some thoughts:

1. GFF is the best Flyfishing site worldwide

2. Everlasting success for GFF!

3. I want a cap too!

4. Forum Meister: Please do something to avoid this forum to fall in the underworld! This is the greatest chance Flyfishers around the world have to "Globalize"!! I don't know, a highly visible link on the frontpage, some kind of advertiising...

Thanks again Martin, Bob & Co.!!!

You rule!!

forum yesterday, and even though it was not as simple as in the old one, I got it to work in the end.

Regarding the forum and database response time you may be right. The system has to shift between two databases (but on the same server) when going from GFF in general to the forum and back and this can take time... but several seconds seems to be way too much. I'll see what I can do. Haven't seen the problem myself. Can you see in your status line in the browser what it's trying to read when it sticks?

Being a website owner as well...

Being a website owner as well, I am fully aware of the amount of work required to keep a website current and popular. Martin and his colleague have certainly employed their dedication, effort and time to keep both the content and the layout of Global Flyfisher appealing. Congratulations on what you have accomplished and I look forward to see what GFF brings to the readers in the future. :)

I'm back in Copenhagen again in May and June, looking forward to connecting with some garfish, pike, brown trout and grayling. :D

Best regards,

The latter of the species......

The latter of the above species you'll have to visit Jylland.
Unfortuantely no thymallus thymallus exist near to Copenhagen or the surrounding area. But I guess you already knew that?
Did you already know that?
Of course you did...
Good hunting never-the-less and keep us posted.
O yeah Martin...Awaiting the Bornholm article, pictures and latest skunked figures as if life depended on it.

e three other species 1,5 kilometers from my place in the same river and at nearly the same place in a river called Storå. For the garfish you have to drive 20 kilometers to Struer and the area around the Oddesund bridge.
If you are interested in a guide and a place to stay, just drop me a line.

Kind regards, Michael

Greetings from Finland! ...

Greetings from Finland!

I would like first of all thank you for the Great site, absolutely best fly fishing site I know. I have visited here since '97 I think when it was Fishing Denmark. I remember that I printed out some fly recipes in work because I didint have internet connection home :) Since then I have been visiting here often and check out if there something interesting to read, and yes many times there is.

So long life to the Global Fly Fisher, hope that you will keep up the good work!

I'm also upkeeping fly fishing site in Finnish, you dont understand a word, but maybe you would like to check out some pictures from our gallery, there is 4791 pics at the moment from Finland and some from other coutries too.

Have a nice summer and tight lines! :)
