Monte, excellent innovation & inspiration. I have always admired your creations. Quite artistic! The majority of you tyers out there should study Monte's flies and learn from them. I found them to be very helpful in my own tying. I know that soundsa funny coming from an old Geezer like me, but you are never too old to learn new tricks. Thanks again Monte, you young whippersnapper!

… 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.
