Notes: This is Bob's all red freestyle creation. The brown body is one not often seen, but works surprisingly well with the all red surroundings and having the natural red pheasant feather there to tie things together.

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.
