The Flyfishers’ Journal: Summer 2017

To the best of this editor’s knowledge, there’s never been a big dirty streamer on the front of the Flyfishers’ Journal. Dedicated followers of Halford might want to look away now, but the moment I saw this photo from Neil Patterson (hard evidence of a recent catfishing trip to Florence) I knew what I had […]

Out now… my first full issue of the Flyfishers’ Journal. Jeremy Brook helped to update the grid, STR have done an outstanding job with design and print, and once again it’s been a serious source of pleasure to work with so many talented contributors including Fred Buller (Shannon salmon), Neil Patterson (mouse fishing in Patagonia), Greg Belcamino (American […]

The Flyfishers’ Journal: Winter 2013

Following the very sad and sudden passing of the great fly-fishing and environmental writer Peter Lapsley in July last year, I’ve been honoured to be asked to assume the Editorship of the Flyfishers’ Journal – the biannual magazine of the ancient and storied London-based Flyfishers’ Club. Truth to tell, I’d already been nominated as Peter’s […]
