French reservoir fishing

Beautiful video from the French fly fishing championships in lakes and reservoirs. Very good slow motion casting studies.

Bernd, Thanks for...


Thanks for your kind words about GFF! We're glad you like the page.

I tend to agree with you on fly fishing competitions. Competing is far from my attitude towards fishing, and I never really understood people who want to compete rather than fish. Like yourself I fish to be out there and enjoy nature and good company.
But of course others can do as they please: compete, do distance casting or whatever.


Hello dear GFF Team,...

Hello dear GFF Team,
in my opinion, your side is one of the best flyfishing sides on the www and definitly my personal favorit. I am a fly only man for more then 30 years, teaching flyfishing and flytying, writing articles for magazines and doing a lot of guiding. But the video from the "french flyfishing championship" has absolutly nothing to do with serious flyfishing. It degenerates our passion to ping-pong playing with live animals. Competition fishing -no matter if it is coarsefishing or flyfishing- means a less of respect to the fish. I wonder why especially flyfishermen do this; in my opinion flyfishing means an intensive feeling of nature, beeing a part of it combined with maximum fairness and respect to the creature itself. Competition flyfishing is in my opinion light years away from serious flyfishing. I think it would be better for the fish and for the standing of our passion, when these competition "flyfishers" would do only casting. They can earn their trophys much better this way.... This is only my personal opinion, but I hope, that this kind of sport has no real future or any space.
Everybody thight lines!

The GFF money box

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.
