A Veteran’s Legacy

Sanctuary. There are two primary definitions. One meaning a place of refuge or safety. The other more specifically defined as a protected natural space. Ninety-five year old World War II veteran Frank Moore knows that the two definitions are not mutually exclusive, that sanctuary as a protected natural space is also a place of refuge, safety, and even healing. After the war, Frank found healing by fly fishing the North Umpqua River. He and his wife, Jeanne, have spent their lives as stewards to the North Umpqua, instilling a legacy of conservation to preserve and cherish our natural sanctuaries for the health of the rivers and the fish, and for our own human mental health. #SaveSanctuaries

… 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.
