Fly Fish America
Fly Fish America is available free at nearly every fly-fishing retailer across the country.
Fly Fish America is a different kind of magazine—in a lot of different ways. We're not a bunch of ivory-tower journalists here at Fly Fish America. We're just a bunch of guys like you who live to fish, and can speak and write fairly good English. When we test and review fly rods, reels, lines and accessories, we present the results in a straightforward, no-nonsense format that provides all the information you need to make a purchase decision—including the price.
We all live and work in New Hampshire's Mount Washington Valley, surrounded by the White Mountain National Forest. The Saco River flows past our office, with its East and Rocky Branches a stone's throw away, and the fabled Ellis, Sawyer and Androscoggin Rivers just up the road. The Big A (as in "Atlantic") is less than sixty miles to the east, and the entire New England Coast is within easy striking distance. Needless to say, we have no shortage of fly-fishing opportunities.
The print version of Fly Fish America can be picked up free at any of the more 1,600 fly-fishing retailers nationwide who distribute the magazine. Those retailers include all Cabela's, Gander Mountain, Dick's, Scheel's, Sportsman's Warehouse and other "big box" stores, as well as your local, independently owned fly shop.
Subscriptions are not available, and for good reason. We're not looking for the chance to provide free magazines to "couch potatoes" who don't support their local fly shops, and by extension, the fly-fishing industry. Our readers have to get off the couch and visit a fly-fishing retailer to obtain a copy of Fly Fish America, so it's a good bet that they're all active fly-rod, -reel, -line and accessory consumers. Those are the people we want as readers, and the folks who deserve a free copy of Fly Fish America.
