Notes: This brings back memories of the late 1990's in that everywhere you looked, there was a kid wearing an Oakland Starter hat, toque, shirt or overstuffed jacket. The Raiders started their franchise endeavor in 1960, playing in Oakland, moving to Los Angeles in 1982, and then back to Oakland in 1995. Over these past 60+ years, the franchise has won 3 Superbowls and numerous Division titles. Don has done another wonderful job incorporating the team's silver, black and white color scheme. It's just missing the Raider on the shoulder, perhaps the next incarnation will have one silk-screened onto the shoulder feather.

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.
