• Welcome to smallstreams.com

    smallstreams.com is a about you, the worldwide community of fly fishermen who often prefer the intimate waters most often overlooked by mainstream anglers - the skinny water that hides the little fish that so many people write off, but that we cherish. smallstreams.com is about all things fishing, but often focuses on the intimacy of fishing in places that we know hold the secrets of good living, and tiny fish filled with spunk that is exponentially larger than their measurement. smallstreams.com is a community that loves to share our stories and images - you might notice that there are many different authors of the articles on this home page, and that they are from all over - Japan, Australia, the UK, Germany, and the US among other places.

    The articles we share here with you on the front page are pulled from our forums - the forums are the heart of smallstreams.com, and are for members only. Members also have access to create their own blogs and photo albums that are hosted here at smallstreams and hassle free. Membership also includes very limited advertising to logged in members on the site. Consider this an invitation to join us here at smallstreams.com


    You will notice that smallstreams.com is different... because, well, we respect each other, the waters we fish, and this world - and because, paraphrasing John Voelker from so long ago:

    In a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion - because only in the woods can I find solitude without loneliness, and, finally, not because I regard fishing as being so terribly important but because I suspect that so many of the other concerns of men are equally unimportant and not nearly so much fun.


    So again, welcome to smallstreams.com, and enjoy your visit!
