Notes: Jim has an affinity for complex streamer bodies in the tradition of Herb Welch's classic streamers. The Quabbin reservoir is Massachusetts largest inland body of water and serves as a major water source to the Greater Boston area. Quabbin reservoir was created in the mid 1930's and named for a Native American chief called Nani-Quaben, meaning place of many waters. The lake is rich with a wide variety of fish species and trolling the streamer may result in an meeting with any number of sport fish including landlocked salmon, trout (brook, brown, lake and rainbow), bass and pickerel.

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.
