Notes: Da Bears are one of the two remaining original teams in the NFL. The franchise began in Decatur, Illinois, in 1919 before moving to Chicago in 1921. The Bears captured their first Superbowl in 1985, but had captured eight league championships prior to the Superbowl era. The hackle don uses is magical, displaying a mystical blue on the back side of the dark blue facade. A fiery splash of orange crowns the streamer, giving a bright spot to the dark fly.

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.
