In this issue, we give you…. FISH!
Here you will see 20 different species from waters across the globe, caught and landed within the essays and videos of Issue #71. Make your checklist for this journey and be sure to mark off all you encounter.
Look for the following:
-Carp in “Portugal’s Alentejo Region” by Jose Rodrigues.
-Atlantic salmon and brown trout in “Iceland Summer Vacation” by Brian O’Keefe.
-Sockeye and Coho salmon, Winter and Summer steelhead, brook trout and even roosterfish created by Oregon artist Sheila Dunn in her essay called “Saving Salmon with Art”.
-Pacific Northwest’s bass, including the specialty crafted Bunny Leech fly by Spawn Fly Fish in Josh Phillips essay “Pacific Northwest Bass”.
-All three species of South America’s Peacock bass in Sam Parkinson’s essay “Afloat – Colombia Fly Fishing.”
And finally, here’s where your checklist will beg for a sharpened pencil:
-Todd Moen will take you on a whirlwind tour of Australia’s coastline in his latest T-Motion film, “Australia Coast to Coast” sponsored by Tourism Australia and Panasonic’s pro line of camera tech. On the Great Barrier Reef, see the mighty red throat emperor, shark mackerel and bumphead parrotfish. Then south along Australia’s eastern coastline, catch barramundi and mackerel tuna. Northward, on the northwestern inlet deep within Australia’s mangrove-lined bays, experience the golden trevally, the mighty cobia and the magnificent queenfish caught on the fly in some exhilarating shots.
At more than 25 minutes, “Australia Coast to Coast” is the longest film EVER featured in Catch Magazine! Get comfortable, grab some popcorn, and don’t forget your cheat sheet with Issue 71‘s fish checklist.
Thanks for reading Catch Magazine!
