About Fly Culture
Published quarterly, Fly Culture is a fly fishing journal of high quality writing and photographs that capture the essence of what fly fishing means to us all.

Are you sitting in the office? Or on the sofa at home watching TV? Do you wish you could be fishing instead? We’ll take you with us as we travel to rivers, lakes and streams at home and beyond in search of fish, friendship and adventure.

At Fly Culture we care about our natural resources and the fish we pursue. We will take a strong stance on conservation and ask the questions that, at times, need to be asked.

We don’t do reviews, ‘how-to’, or ‘why don’t you’. You can get all that on the internet. We don’t do ‘grip and grins’ or hero shots. We don’t care about numbers and we don’t measure how much fun we had in pounds or inches. We are not ‘where, what and when’, we are ‘why’.

Run by fly anglers who are passionate about their pastime. Fly Culture is a progressive, forward-thinking magazine that is in touch with what is happening in the fly fishing community.

We run Fly Culture as ethically as possible, from the paper and ink that we use to supporting the causes that matter.

For us, it isn’t about the money, it is about something far more important – fishing and friendship.

I have an article on my San trip from last year in the second issue.  £9 isn't much these days for hopefully, a good magazine with plenty of stories and no advertising!

Vaughan,

Its an old colloquialism which basically means that when someone is not too happy with something that they would prefer that it was entered into a bodily orifice without using some kind of lubrication. And not, I might add, their own orifice.

Ie “my dear fellow 9pounds seems an inflated cost for an angling quarterly, that is far beyond what I would be willing to pay, kindly place it where the sun seldom shines”

Or £9! Ram it!
All day we fished
And caught trout and
Invisible treasures

We walked home, ragged millionaires

Ram it? I dunno, you can have a year's subscription to Sprout & Gammon for £37 or four Fly Culture for £36.
Or same old same old with masses of adverts and nothing much worth reading against something of quality and substance with no adverts.
I wish them luck and hope it doesn't fizzle out like the Waterlog did. I guess the main issue, as with all mags, will be keeping it fresh and interesting.

Not that big a price if the quality is good. No advetrs means sales only to pay for everything and that may be difficult to build up. I hope it succeeds. For T n S you do get 12 copies of much the same stuff for your subs  :shock:
