The mark of a really great writer is that he gives expression to what the masses of mankind think or feel without knowing it. The mediocre writer simply writes what everyone would have said.
-G.C. Lichtenberg, 1799
We want our fishing stories to be educational and entertaining, not instructional. We don't publish "how-to, where-to" pieces. There are other magazines out there for you if this is what you write. Check out one of the two issues if you have questions. If you want it published, write it well. Think literary and tell us a story. Write about your dog. Make us laugh.
As for photography, please be creative. No "grip and grins". We're also looking for artwork, cartoons, illustrations, etc. All payments are negotiable.
Stories of fishing in an urban environment.
Profiles of people. In depth, well-written, accurate. Let us know who they are, not just how they fish or hunt.
Short, 200-600 word essays or opinions from the sporting world. Anecdotes, stories that are funny. You get the idea.
Entomology, plain and simple. Not patterns, but actual insects. Life cycle, habitat, flight times.
