Six Women Who Are Revolutionizing the World of Fly Fishing

To the casual observer, the world of fly fishing may look like a totally male-dominated endeavor. Dig a little deeper, however, and you will inevitably discover the long-held and enduring legacy that female anglers have imprinted on the sport. It was Joan Wulff who changed the sport forever.

I haven’t been able to find an exact reason for shutting down the site, but like most things…..I’m sure it comes down to money. Dailymile did offer a pro option, but with most ...
