Just wrapped up the spring issue and it will be hitting the newsstands soon. I think you’ll find it well worth reading with lots of solid technical information along with numerous fun reads, including the second installment of our essay section, this time with a theme of fly-fishing culture. In the mix is Chris Santella, who covers fly-fishing vocabulary; Robert Robinson is in it again with his take on prioritizing in favor of fishing; John Gierach makes an appearance with his take on the modern beard fad; and Seth Norman shares his view on flies and what goes into naming them.
You’ll find the full features in this issue, too, mine being on fishing for steelhead on the OC, Oregon’s intriguing north and central coasts. Seth Norman covers single-person watercraft; Zach Matthews tries for long nose gar; Ted Williams details the Magnuson/Stevens act; Pat Ford “shoots” sailfish; Dave Hughes says you got to find the pod; Hilary Hutchinson details some killer girls fly-fishing gear; Dave Kaczynski shares his essential travel bag, complete with his medicinal Wild Turkey 101; and we feature which fly some of our best known authors would use if they could only fish one fly, for their favorite fish, on their dying day. There’s art in this issue, too, along with a review of Dodge’s new eco-diesel and Toyo’s indestructible MT tires.
I know you’ll enjoy. Let me know which are your favorite articles and why. Thanks. GT
