I have been fly fishing and tying flies for 60 years. My journeys included trout, salmon, and saltwater adventures in Canada, Costa Rica, and principally the United States. I have witnessed dramatic changes in the environment, fishery, and fly fishing technology over these 6 decades but still am drawn to flyrod challenges. Proudly my grand children are now students and advocates of the sport.

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.
