ABOUT US

American Fly Fishing is an inspiring, collectible reference of North American angling destinations. The staff at American Fly Fishing takes pride in its commitment to the highest standards of publishing, from timely, informative stories by the sport’s most talented writers, to award-winning photography, layout, and design. Each issue provides an insider’s look at well-known fisheries and off-the-radar waters, both close to home and farther afield.

Our feature articles provide in-depth coverage of fisheries, with valuable insights, tantalizing anecdotes, and all the details readers need to plan successful angling adventures. Each feature includes a hand-produced custom map of the fishery that highlights the important landmarks covered in the article, as well as a sidebar with recommended tackle, fly patterns, guides, shops, lodging options, and more. In addition to the feature articles, American Fly Fishing carries enticing, entertaining, and informative departments: “Around the West” and “Around the East” present concise destination stories, like miniature features; “Masters at the Bench” and “Pioneers & Legends” are biographies covering the personalities of our sport; “From the Creel” and “American Classics” are wide-ranging columns covering myriad intriguing topics; “Fish Tales” celebrates the humorous side of fly fishing; “Conservation” reports on important efforts nationwide; “Exposure” is a themed photo essay, presented by the best photographers in fly fishing; a variety of other recurring departments round out the magazine.

American Fly Fishing combines our former regional titles into a single powerhouse magazine. In 1999, we launched Northwest Fly Fishing, followed by Southwest Fly Fishing and Eastern Fly Fishing. For more than 20 years, our readers have relied on our destination reporting to plan angling adventures near and far, and American Fly Fishing is the culmination of that tradition, a veritable guidebook to outstanding fisheries throughout North America.
