Look here .... What is your favorite magazine?

All of the magazine suggestions you could possibly read in a lifetime.

I want to be the first to point out that many of the questions that you have can be easily satiated with the search function. If you look under your 'welcome' tab-- upper right side of screen, the search is the third option from the right. click it and put your terms in.

To put my .02 in, I like Grey's Sporting Journal (not FF specific, but good writing.)

The Fly Fishers Journal. Great pictures and writing, not as much gear review.

Kory,

T has given a good pointer for finding things around here. Currently I do not take in any magazines but understand how as a beginner you are looking for info and inspiration. The thread T has you linked to is full of member preferences.

Hey T,

I used to take Grey's back in the 80's and still have them. They are like the National Geographic of sporting magazines huh? It just does not seem right to throw them to the trash.

I'm only a recent joinee myself, but am rather pleased with the four major english magazines-TF,TFF,T&S and FF&FT. I know Fly Fishing and Fly Tying and Tout and Salmon are distributed in the states, but not so sure about Total Fly Fisher or Trout Fisherman, they have good articles and lots of fly recipes in them, if that's any help

I like the "Drake" because of the stated cover price: 5 bucks, 10 bucks for bait-fisherman.

I don't have a favorite, I buy one in a different flavor every couple of months. The drake issue that has the photo contest is pretty nice to look through.

Second on the Drake. Don't subscribe, but I get it when it comes out.

It depends on what you want out of a magazine:

Do you want to learn something? Fly Rod and Reel is good for this, perhaps Fly Fisherman, too.

Do you want to find out about places to go locally, regionally or internationally? Eastern/Western Fly Fishing is a good one. High quality.

The Drake is an excellent choice for off-beat prose on the fly fishing. People doing stuff that most of us wish we could do, at least I do.

There's no shortage...

The Drake is my fav. While many are discussing gear or where to go, or fly to throw.
This mag has quality prose from guys with serious fish sickness.
I'll go with NWfly fishing too.
