When the fishing’s hot, there’s not much that can standbetween you and the water. But we all know fall weather can be a fickle thing; moreso, even, than those finicky browns that have been spurning everything youtoss all season long. Coldertemperatures, cloudy skies, and an icy driving rain can make it hard to get outafter spending a short-sleeved summer dropping dries onto the clear skin of sun-dappled mountainpools. Gone is the warm, and in roll the clouds. . . . Days like this, it’s nice to have something to ease the transition and keep you fired up. Enter The Fly Fish Journal.
The team at Funny Feelings LLC just cast the first issue out there. Theirpress release describes this beautiful collection best:
