Notes: The Saints have been playing football in Louisiana since 1967. The name Saints come from New Orleans largely catholic population and the observance of All Saints Day, November 1. The team features a fleur-de-lis logo with black and old gold colours. The Saints grabbed their first Superbowl championship in 2009, defeating the Indianapolis Colts. This came just a couple years after the team was forced to play home games out of state, a result of the 2005 Hurricane Katrina.

Black flies seem to work anywhere,i bet this would work great on our large brown trout here in Scotland especially at this time of year when they start to feed on the fry...

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.
