    Default Reading Suggestions

    Minnesota winters are long and after a life time of it, ice fishing is losing its appeal. So reading is a priority. For years I have subscribed to Northwest Fly Fishing, American Angler, Fly Fisherman, Grey's Sporting J. and Trout (Unlimited). Destinations and articles on western trout fishing are my favorites. Am I missing any good publications that meet the aforemented criteria?

    I've been reading a lot of on-line "magazines." There are some terrific ones emerging, as well as some adults floating around. My most recent favorite is MontanaFlyFishingMagazine. Catch Magazine and Drake Magazine are nice too. MidCurrent is timely. I like Hatches, and some of the other fly-tying ones. There are some excellent fly tying sites with photos, step-by-steps, and articles about flies and fly tying too. Google will put you on all of these and more if you ask. These and others will also show up in your email, or on your Facebook, whenever they're updated if you tell them to. Most of these are free! Some do, or will, require a small subscription fee. The photos can be outstanding.

    I haven't found them all, so hopefully others will chime in with some great free E-Mags. E-Mag, gee, that sounds kinda hip to an old guy like me. I love 'em.

    Oh, and I almost forgot, but there's quite a few informative and entertaining blogs out there people have now. Not just with a million of the same old pictures (like mine), but some have really good narrative. I "follow" a few just like a magazine subscription, and again, for free!

    If you are interested in Alaska, Miles Nolte wrote a great book on the daily life of a fly fishing guide in Alaska called "The Alaska Chronicles", his writing style makes for some great reading.

    Ditto Drake magazine even though I'm not really in their target demographic. I also like Fly Tyer and I can review the patterns covered in each issue by checking the back cover before I buy.
