Hello December and let the countdown begin. Just 31 days until we start blasting out the streamers! To date, I have over 200 streamers in, and am just waiting for a few more sets to trickle in. There is an amazing amount of original designs to be included in the project, many never seen before. I've also just finished editing a neat article by Don Ordes. He has designed a system that can be used to aid the creative tyer, or the production tyer alike. Check out the "Wing Things" system.

… 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.
