Notes: York's Kennebago was originated by Mr. Bert Quimby and named after Mr. T. Lewis York, the owner of York's camp. The camp was situated on the shores of Kennebago Lake and catered to wealthy professionals and sportsmen. The York's Kennebago was created to mimic the chub and dace baitfish species found in the lakes around the camp. While over his career, he created a number of flies including the Lady Ghost, Governor Brann and the Dusty Streamer, he himself favoured York's Kennebago along with the Lady Ghost over the others.

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.
