Notes: Years ago while tying flies at a trade show, Charlie was approached by a Vermont guide who took clients fishing on Lake Champlain. He gave Charlie a pinkish colored streamer pattern he had called a Booker Special. Charlie modified the pattern and christened it the Champlain Jane in recognition of the Vermont guide. The streamer has been quite a fish getter over the years and has found more than a few kypes on the Miramichi River when tied on a salmon hook.

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.
