Just in case you have been living under a rock for the last several months, We'll shout it out again...
This Is Fly is a great read.
Online publications, at least in our minds, have always struggled with the "page thingy", the fact that instead of having all the info right there in front of you like an analog mag, a fella had to scroll down the page to read an article. Not no mo'.
Now in it's 6th issue, This is Fly has the feel of a glossy without all the hassle of trying to find a copy in a small, one-flyshop town...plus, it has great writing. Check out the Pebble Mine coverage in the latest issue, along with "Coney Island Zombies"...any flyfishing story that has the line "I know is [sic] big fish, but this is not worth getting robbed" is worth a read in our book.
While you are there, check out The Daily. As the blog of This is Fly, it serves a "Letters to the Editor" and "All the News that's Fit to Print" sorta function, and is a great read in its own right.
Keep up the good work, Tim.
