Letter from the Editor…
Hello Catch Magazine readers,
Over the years, we’ve brought you essays from waters all over the world and from nearly every continent. It’s easy to realize that fly fishing is a cross-cultural sport. Where there are fish, there are anglers. You could say that every community is infused with angling in some way…there truly is a global infusion of fly fishing. We are honored to present you wth a special Veterans Day Catch Magazine issue. It’s a celebration of some amazing people, people who are not only Americans and veterans, but who are anglers as well. I find this issue particularly special because a WW II Veteran, my own grandfather, introduced me to fishing when I was a child. My sister and I spent quite a few early mornings trolling for trout with Grandpa on North Idaho’s Spirit Lake. His influence carries on to this day. In memory of Grandpa Charlie, we’d like to dedicate this issue to the global community of anglers who have served their own countries, worldwide, across every culture and throughout history.
With much gratitude, Kelley Moen
