Extreme Stickleback

Interested in going on a hosted trip to ICELAND in Summer 2020? Learn more here:

The Extreme Stickleback is a bait fish imitation that you can tailor to represent those in your local waters. After the tying, stick around to learn more about how we used it in Iceland to catch their incredible brown trout. Lots of guests, information, and fun in this one!

Thanks go out to the following for making Iceland an epic experience:

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.
