I was turtored in the art of fishing by my older brother. As a guide and mentor he pushed me at times at a hectic pace attempting to expose me to as many areas of fishing as he and his circle of anglers knew and enjoyed. He was patient and all of his harsh criticism honest as he helped me to hone my fledgling skills. My brother is gone now fishing with the likes of Emerson and Homer, I am sure arguing the nature of the universe. I stand by him and with him everytime I hear the laugh of a new inductee whether it be child, or adult.

In my years since i was little,i have been blessed with my dad introducing me to fishing and hunting and throu the years enjoyed the seniors who share the same sport and thaugh me so much and to sit with them by the fire sipping tea and maybe a little extra in the tea,i always wanted to see or do something special for them ,since dad is 84 this year and will be fly fishing for atlantic salmon with me and is anxious for this .i would love to see and read more stories about dads and kids for fathers day because alot of us wouldnt fly fish if it wasnt for our dads who took us and showed us how to,for me Dad is the best fly i can have with me when fishing together ,even when we dont catch anything watching others sitting on the bank ,laughing and listning to his stories and especially when another guy his age show up and they talk wow i sit there and listen like a kid in a candy store.your site is so great for me and shared with others thank u.

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.
