Notes: Swift River in New Hampshire is a tributary of the Saco River which flows into the Atlantic Ocean. Historically the river were spawing grounds for Atlantic salmon, but several dams built along the Saco River system prevent the migration. An effort is underway to improve the situation and remove barriers for the salmon and other anadromous fish. Jim's streamer uses layers of color to build out a convincing minnow imitation. The white belly and dark back have fooled many trout on the waters.

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.
