My name is Raoul Kempkes and I live in the friendliest city in Germany: Cologne!

I began fly fishing about 16 years ago when I watched the film “A river runs through it”. As an autodidact I learned fly casting and tying by myself with the help of books and videos. Together with my brother Rouven we began traveling to some of the nicest fishing areas in Europe. During the recent years we have fished in Ireland, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, Slovenia and entire Germany.

Over the years I got fascinated by two major targets: big grayling and Baltic sea trout! This is why I fish for grayling on weekends and try to have two or three weeks of coastal fishing in the year. My favorite fishing areas are the “Sauerland” in western Germany and the south Swedish coast.

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.
