Flyfishing mags

How many out there subscribe to ff mags? I get these:

1. American Angler
2. Fly Tyer
3. Saltwater Flyfishing

I also get the occasional Flyfish America from the guys at my local fly shop, and sooner than later I'll be getting Fly Fishing New England.

The three that I currently subscribe to cover most of the bases that I need. I primarily fish saltwater and warmwater with occasional forays into trout streams, and I tie my own flies.

So how about the rest of you? Are you pleased with the publications, and are there any other niches out there that could be filled with another mag?

I admit it: I'm a sucker for mags. I get the three below as well as Gray's and FlyFisherman. Soon, I'll add FF in NE too...

Generally same ol' stuff, but I like *most* of the writing in Gray's, have always enjoyed Flyfisherman & Am Angler and every once in a while find something good in SW Flyfishing. I'm just a pushover for the stuff.

Being an avid hunter as well as fly fisher (and posessing somewhat of a literary bent) I know of no greater periodical than Greys Sporting Journal. I also have been known to drool uncotrollably over issues of Fly Tyer

If your from the Northeast, OTW is the must have mag. I have always considered it essential since vol. I, which I still have.

I have subscribed to so many mags over the years that I've been fly fishing, I quit keeping count. However, there is only one that I now have a subscription to, it is Fly Rod & Reel. And about every fourth or fifth issue, I'll pick up Northwest Fly Fishing becaue it has an article in it that I'm interested in.

Grey's in terrific reading; but is doesn't have much fly fishing content so I categorize it more as a general hunting and fishing magazine. Much like a literate Outdoor Life.

The biggest problem I have with nearly all the fly fishing magazines is the me and Joe went to the Other Fork River with this guide named "John" who works out of the "Best Fly Shop Ever" located in Rivertown type of articles. We used these flies and fished from here to there and behind this rock in the "Hog Hole" pool fished as John directed and we caught us a mess 'o fish. So you all look him up and get yur supplies from the Best Fly Shop Ever and you too will git yurself a mess 'o fish. I wish they would quit this type of "informative" piece. Technique is one thing, a type of fly is another; but when they start telling the reader to go to this shop, use this guide, and fish behind that rock in this particular way, it is no longer about the river, the fish, or technique. It is instead, an infomercial for the guide, shop and specific place in the river, which you need the guide's expertise to find of course.

None.

However I do stand in the drug store or the mag shop on BC ferries and read Rory Glennie's contribution to Canadian Fly Fisher.

Cheers N I

I can't argue with you at all on this one, Russ. Good point.

I should probably subscribe to fly tier ( I end up buying it off the shelf anyways ) That and I occasionally get fly rod and reel.

In no order of preference...

FFISW
FFAmerica
Fly Tyer
Fly Fisherman

Used to get Saltwater Fly Fishing, but after they went to the new format I let my subscription expire. I read Fly Tyer cover to cover and enjoy most of Fly Fisherman. The other two I'll probably let expire, also.
