“The Band” of John Gierach and Bob White is Sticking Together… Many of you have been long-time followers of author John Gierach and artist Bob White, whose collaborative column graced the pages of Fly Rod & Reel magazine for nearly 30 years. With FR&R now gone, some were wondering whether the band would be able to stick together…
Fear not! Trout magazine has picked up the column and the first installment in Trout will come out in October. Titled “Quinault,” it’s one of the best pieces ever written (and illustrated) on steelheading. Trout magazine is available (quarterly) through the $35 annual membership in Trout Unlimited.
Kara Armano Representing Loon for PR… Said Kara: “I take great pride in working with brands who have good people running them, great products, and take pride in helping anglers make their days on the water better, and Loon couldn’t be a better example of this.”
Winston/Bauer hires Chris Seipio, of the CPO Agency, as Western Canada Sales Representative. Chris has been fishing for 35 years and fly-fishing for 32. He has excellent fly casting skills, winning a Canadian championship for distance casting, then going on to obtain his Masters Certification through the Federation of Fly Fishers. Said Jim Murphy, Winston/Bauer Sales Manager: “Winston and Bauer welcome Chris to the team. Western Canada holds a special place for us as our products have always been designed with a great respect for this serious fishery and its anglers. Chris will bring us even closer to our roots and the future of the angling community in his home.”
