Behind the scenes

As promised, here’s a little more about what you can expect in Issue 1 of Fly Culture.

First off, Executive Editor James Beeson beautifully describes his favourite fly hatch of the season and what it means to him. Jim spends much of his fishing time in and around the rivers of Dartmoor in Devon but a job change meant he found himself living in Rutland. As a result he’ll travel anywhere in search of trout, salmon or sea trout.

Andy Baird is known for his love of fishing small flies via his excellent Small Fly Funk blog. In his piece he compares his love of fishing small streams with bamboo rods and his other passion, collecting vinyl.

James Gilbraith writer of the most excellent book Terminal Chancer takes us to his home river in an off-beat and hugely entertaining piece about salmon fishing that we promise will have you laughing out loud.

What happens after the apocalypse? Ben Jailler works out a plan and can still go fishing. Funny and well crafted you’ll need his piece as your own survival manual.
