I’ve literally rekindled my interest for fly tying by taking up tying salmon flies… which actually work quite well when you swing them for trout on western rivers. Just because I always wanted to tie patterns with names like the “Munroe Killer” the “Hairy Mary” or “Blue Charm.” This is the best recipe book for great patterns (tilted toward this side of the Atlantic)… dutifully produced in English and French, to accommodate all aficionados of “saumon atlantique.” (Goose Lane, $24.95)
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.
