Why FlyFish Circle?

Like for many of you, I want to fish every water, in every country.

But I run into so many questions. What species to fish for in what months? How do I get a local permit? What flies work best?

That's why I created FlyFish Circle: to help all fly fishers get answers to these questions and to unlock new fly fishing adventures around the world.

If you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to reach out. Tight lines!
