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 fourth issue of Fly Punk. We cannot thank you enough for reading the magazine, and even though we have only been in existence for 7 month’s we are already gaining readers at an extraordinary rate (we had over 20,000 readers of the last issue again). Thank you. In this issue, we cover the whole world of fly fishing, from Finland, to French Polynesia and South Africa to Switzerland. Covering tropical and regular species both large and small. Thanks to everyone who has submitted articles for us, we couldn’t do it without you. I recently had a day on the river with Renato Vitalini (V-Stick Custom Rods - featured later in this issue), he helpfully supplied some very apt refreshments: 22 Francois goursaud― POLYNESIAN PUNK 6 12 14 18 20 22 FULL-TIME FLY FISHING Anni Yli-Lonttinen and her thoughts on making fly fishing her full time job.

FATHERHOOD & FLY FISHING Open up a whole new world for your kids. Jack Van Delft shows us his take on it. FREE AGAIN Jeff Scoggin tastes freedom, with the help of his boat. POLYNESIAN PUNK Want to fish in French Polynesia, Francois Goursaud did - here's his article (French & English) Renato has built a “Fly Punk” rod for us and we were out doing field tests. It’s a cracker and does not look like any fly rod I’ve ever seen (more of the build and the day on the river in the next issue, but check out Renato’s article (and a few sneaky build photos of the rod). We are always looking for new angles to fly fishing. 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! Anyway, please enjoy our fourth issue – there’s a fly punk in all of us … 34 36 40 42 Alex Poland Art - A stunning Brown Trout WHERE DO I START? The evolution of Fly Fishing as told by Mike Crawford.
