Why a bass fly book in TROUT magazine? When you want to go big time with your fly tying, you venture into bass bugs. The materials and the processes will take you to another level entirely. And, oh, by the way there are bass everywhere, and they’re as much fun to catch on a fly rod as they are with a Carolina rig. Jay Zimmerman is one of the top five living fly innovators in the world right now. And it’s a beautifully produced book, front to back. (Stackpole, $29.95)
TROUT Media, the print/digital/and social media arm of Trout Unlimited, is partnering with Angling Trade Magazine to create insightful, honest, reporting and gear review content in the fly-fishing space. Both entities will be sharing various written reviews and videos on their respective platforms going forward. TU will bring reviews by everyday anglers, for everyday anglers, while Angling Trade will bring insights from professional editors who have been exclusively focused on the North American fly-fishing market for over 15 years. It will be a mix of gear reviews unlike anything produced to date.
