WELCOME CONTENTS No tweed, wicker baskets or trousers tucked into socks. Just a free digital magazine aimed at the fly fishing punk Welcome to this, the second issue of Fly Punk. Well that was a blast … your response to the first issue of Fly Punk was nothing short of astonishing! We thought that it would take us a year or so to gradually build up a readership. But no, you were not having any of that, we have had literally thousands of you reading the first issue. This is beyond our wildest expectations, so a big thank you. We have now revised our plans and are aiming to get the word out even further for this next issue. This is where we need your help, if we could trouble you to share this through all of your social media networks it would be much appreciated. If we can increase the readership again, we will start to publish it on a monthly basis. So … what’s in this issue I hear you ask. Well, we have a couple of articles on Saltwater fly fishing (Halibut on the fly anyone?), something from Africa, Canada, the Brotherhood of the Bend are back in action and quite a bit from Australia & New Zealand. We have also included book and gear reviews to whet your appetites. It’s been pretty cold and murky here in the UK over the past month (great Grayling weather though!). Imagine my surprise when I looked at the back of my car last week and found this: 8 Adam Royter ― SOUTH ISLAND: ON A SHOESTRING 6 8 14 18 22 24 26 30 32 HALIBUT ON THE FLY ANYONE?

If you think you have a story to tell – something that is innovative, out of the ordinary or just plain funny, please jot it down and send it in to us (email address below). We are always looking for new articles and features – so long as it relates to fly fishing and conforms to the “why we fish” ethos we would love to include it. We decided to make this magazine a free publication to try and reach as wide an audience as possible. If you don’t like it – please tell us why, if you do like it – please tell us (and your fishing friends) – we like a pat on the back every now and then! 40 42 46 TROUT PORN Our first Book Review.
