Fly fishing is gaining popularity with both men and women. As the number of fly anglers increases, pressure on traditional cold-water fisheries will become excessive. Fortunately for all of us, there is an extreme number of gamefish in warm-water and salt-water fisheries that will take the fly. Our mission is to guide everyone (beginners, experts, men, women) to diverse fly fishing adventures throughout the World. The Fish Finder, Fly Fishing Reports , and Emailable Fishing Reports are powerful tools we have developed to help you - help us accomplish our mission. Below is an overview of the content on this site.
For those of you who plan your fly fishing trips well in advance, the Fish Finder program will present (location, month, species) scenarios for which history has shown, are prime opportunities to maximize your fly fishing enjoyment. If you know of a successful fly fishing pattern that predictably repeats and is not in the Fish Finder program, we would like to hear about it.
For those of you who fly fish spontaneously, the Report Finder will present current fly fishing reports from around the world. A current report has been filed for any species in the Report Finder aquarium that is highlighted in orange. Feel free to enter a report at any time.
If you would like personalized instruction, there are hundreds of fly fishing schools scattered about the world. The Resource Directory has a comprehensive list of fly fishing schools sorted by location. Use it to locate one convenient to your needs.
To further your fly fishing education and enjoy the company of interesting people, join a local fly fishing club. The Club Finder has a comprehensive list of clubs sorted by location. Use it to locate one or more that might be in your area.

e-Bite is a fly angler email notification (e-Alert) network. Fly anglers are invited to enter (location - body of water - species) requests for notification into the e-Bite network.
