Finding your own way on the water is an experience all its own.
Here's a tale of how I got bit by the fly fishing bug. It all started while watching my boyfriend prepare for a day of fishing. I longed to learn more about this sport, not knowing what I was getting myself into ...by ~ Asha Anderson
Thinking outside the box can come naturally to anyone. You have to allow yourself to come up with many ridiculous notions and let the scintillating schemes come forward. The trick is to recognize the ridiculous from the possible.by ~ Nome Buckman
Steelhead otoliths - who's listening?
Laurentian Great Lakes steelhead are a complex stock of fish. The population is a mixture of hatchery-released and wild, naturally reproduced fish originating from many different streams. Knowing the natal streams of the fish is important to best managing this species, as it allows for targeted insertion and management to the areas that are the major contributors to the total lake population. Fortunately, we may be able to determine the natal stream of a fish by looking at its otolith.by ~ Nicole Watson

A kayak made specifically with the fly angler in mind ... YES!
Last year at ICAST I was introduced to the new “fly fishing kayak,” appropriately called the MAYFLY. Now, let me just be completely honest here. I do not kayak. I’ve been in a kayak maybe twice in my life, and we’re not talking a KAYAK…we’re talking those watercrafts that call themselves kayaks that you can purchase at your local Walmart and come with a paddle.
Wrinkles, sun spots and the big C ... protecting yourself never looked so good.
My mom always said “brown fat looks better than white fat.” I lived by that mantra for years. When I was a teenager in the 80’s, putting iodine and baby oil on your skin and then baking in the sun was the “in” thing. I even blistered my whole face one year in Florida on spring break and call that “hillbilly dermabrasion.” While I say this in jest, the effects of the sun are beginning to take their toll. The older I get, the more important it is to me to protect my skin from the elements. Wrinkles and blotchy skin, coupled with a couple of friends who have had to undergo surgery for skin cancer have changed my idea about sunscreens and baby oil.
Public lands are an important piece of American life. Keeping public lands public isn't a Republican or Democrat party issue -- it's an American issue.
As Americans, we consider ourselves a cultured people and rightfully place high value on the arts. The arts allow us to speak a common language regardless of social, economical or racial barriers. Nowhere is this more evident than in the great city of Nashville. As the Editor-in-Chief of an international fly fishing magazine and an avid angler, I view our national monuments, parks and public lands as a form of art. Like a beautiful painting, the vast open spaces of the Land Between the Lakes is a sight to behold. The morning songbirds there perform with such splendor that even Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik could be considered inadequate. This 178,000 acres of public land, which sees over 1.6 million visitors, and brings almost $5 million in revenue to this rural area is open for all to enjoy.
Permit fishing, farm-to-table lodge, world class guide service and beautiful coral reefs, what could be better?
Last November I had the opportunity to head to Punta Gorda, Belize for an Orvis photoshoot. It took me all of a millisecond to say yes; for two reasons. One, what Orvis is doing for women in fly fishing is so far above and beyond that I was happy to put my stamp of approval on association with them and two, it’s Belize. Punta Gorda, Belize is known for its permit flats and ever since I can remember it’s been on my must-do list.
DUN Magazine is no ordinary fly fishing publication. It is a work of art destined for your coffee table or favorite display shelf. Each edition weighs in at nearly two pounds, and is oversized to showcase the photography inside. Standing at 11.75 inches tall and 9.25 inches wide, this is one impressive magazine.
The magazine is eco-friendly, made of recycled papers and vegetable ink. The cover is 80# matte cover stock with a soft touch and an embossed DUN logo, using a heavy embossing machine. The text pages are 70# matte finish, printed with UV ink.
We spare no expense in printing the magazine. The magazine is created, published and printed in Tennessee. This magazine is more like a book than a magazine. You’ve never seen any outdoor magazine like it.
