Another snowstorm is enveloping the Orvis HQ as I type, so it looks like a good time to indulge in a little “indoor fly fishing.” Good thing there are a couple of new issues of online magazines to provide entertainment. The February-March issue of This Is Fly offers the usual assortment of cutting-edge graphics, killer photography, and interesting storytelling. From Idaho steelhead to wild fly patterns to an interview with April Vokey, there’s something for everyone.
The online publication focused on Big Sky Country features a great primer by Robert Prince on nymphing without an indicator, along with plenty of other cool content that will make you wish you lived on the banks of the Gallatin or Missouri Rivers. Plus there’s a profile of the folks who have opened a distillery in Missoula, which I am sure to visit when I’m in that city for the 2014 Down the Hatch Fishing Festival in April.
