It’s a double hook-up! Urban flyfishing hits T&S and FF&FT in the same month

What’s this? Yes, you read it right: our little niche-within-a-niche of urban flyfishing has just scored (we think) a historic double hook-up…

…with big features in the pages of both Trout & Salmon and Fly Fishing & Fly Tying magazines in the very same month.

The June issue of T&S goes bold with a beautifully-crafted piece by ‘the writer formerly known as North Country Angler’ Matt Eastham, who visits fly-tyer Phillippa Hake on her home water on the Yorkshire Calder before heading higher into the hills above Hebden Bridge (and a deep, green, bouldery shot of Hebden Water gets the front cover too!)

Meanwhile, over in FF&FT, long-time Sheffield river restorationist John Blewitt writes about the renaissance of the Don, complete with photos of historic paintings of the bad old days of massive industrial pollution, and the river’s heroic efforts to rebraid its own mid-channel islands after those notorious dredging works at Malin Bridge in 2009.

Both June magazine issues should be available from good newsagents very shortly. So whatever else you do this month, don’t miss out on this opportunity for your double-hookup urban flyfishing fix…
