Coming Attractions

If you read Fly Anglers OnLine (FAOL) each week (or even occasionally) you may have noticed some additions.

We have added Dave Micus from New England, to provide our "back east" readers with some regionally specific information. As it turns out, Dave's writing has been very well accepted just for the fact it's very good writing. However, for those who have asked for east coast striper fishing, stay tuned. Don't miss his tips for saltwater tying this week.

Native Waters is also new, written by Roger Stouff, to provide more content for our warm-water, southern fly fishers. Roger brings a unique and diverse background with his writing and adds a welcome voice here.

Last week, another new section appeared. The Cyber Fly Angler was the brainchild of one of our Chat Room hosts, Jim Hatch. Jim sent us the suggestion, mentioning specifically help for the older readers who weren't raised in a computer world. Joe Margiotta (flyfisherjoe) stepped up and you will find another by him this week about managing your email. Child's play to the younger folks - intimidating to those who weren't raised with these infernal machines. If you have specific problems you think will be of interest to other readers, please drop Joe an email. (It's on the column.)

There are other new sections in the works as well.

Bill Bryden, a Newfoundland Atlantic Salmon guide will appear soon with a column on how to catch Atlantic Salmon. We have a very good section on tying Atlantic Salmon flies, so it stands to reason we should have something about fishing for them. Actually, Jeff Pierce's article Fly-fishing for Atlantic Salmon, Gaspé Peninsula, Quebec, Canada, was the beginning of the idea. We expect Bill will have some real help for those who have wanted to try for Atlantics.

Also up coming is a new section on fishing for Steelhead. In several parts of the United States it is now more than possible to fish for these silver marvels, with a some effort and knowledge you can actually catch them! We will provide the how-to, along with some suggestions of where and when to go.

We do this to provide the best information we can for our readers. We do listen to our readers, and in fact, we answer every email and Guestbook post. Unlike print, you don't have to wait several months to see if anyone even read your letter.

If you have a suggestion for us, we'd love to hear from you. ~ The LadyFisher
