ABOUT THE NEW FLY FISHER EZINE

If you enjoy The New Fly Fisher television series, then you'll love our new Ezine! The mission of The New Fly Fisher online magazine is to enhance your fly fishing experience by presenting information on the techniques, destinations and the unique heritage of fly fishing & fly tying in an exciting and visually enhanced format. And thanks to our supporters and advertisers, it's now free.

Far more than a print magazine turned into a pdf file – The New Fly Fisher ezine is specifically designed to provide you with a rich multi-media experience. From beautiful photography to detailed animations - to video, every article in the ezine is designed to help you learn. It will explain why large brown trout are spooky in relation to other species or why small streams are such precious and fragile environments; teach you more about entomology and ecology; how a graphite or cane rod is designed and built; why leaders are constructed a certain way and which cast will help you to compensate for difficult water currents.

In each issue show hosts such as Bill Spicer, Phil Rowley, Brian Chan, Rebekka Redd or Colin McKeown write about something new and interesting in fly-fishing. Other writers include well-known fly-fishing celebrities and regional experts, as well as little-known fly fishers who understand a specific water system or tactic that we can all learn from. We're taking a 3-dimensional approach to magazine presentation - clear and concise instruction, stunning photography, and imbedded videos to take you right to the heart of the story.

Additionally, the magazine will provide information about fly-fishing for all fish, in all waters. Whether cold, warm or salt waters - we'll bring you information to help you to enjoy this sport to the greatest extent possible. The New Fly Fisher ezine will also take you to new and exciting destinations - locations with incredible fishing for all species, places you will definitely add to your "must-do" list!

The New Fly Fisher ezine is published four times a year and sent directly to your computer, laptop, iPad – whatever system you are using - and it's free!
