Our Philosophy

One of the most popular venues of our site is the Reviews section. A good mixture of product and literature reviews are a heathly addition to a global site such as ours. Without them, we would be just another run-of-the-mill flyfishing site. We are honest, frank and to the point when reviewing books, videos and other products for our site. We combine many years of fly-fishing experience from the four corners of the globe into each thought-provoking review. We aren't scientific, we are realistic. A review of your product will undoubtetly reach tens of thousands of international visitors in only a matter of weeks. Most importantly of all, the review costs you nothing!

Our Review Policy

We would be more than happy to review your flyfishing product. Each review consists of a full content summary and a no-nonsense narrative of our review staff's thoughts and opinions. We strive to remain fair and honest. The opinons reflected in our reviews are definitely ours and remain consistent from review to review. (sample a few reviews) Not everyone gets a rave review, but we always look for the best in everything. Putting pride aside is a must when submitting items for review.

Book and video reviews

We do thorough and unbiased reviews of books, DVDs, streaming videos and other publications. Click here for information regarding how to mail products for review.

Hello Martin. I have yet to see a review done about this "shady book" You told me at the end of Oct. that you'd get to it. I've seen reviews on other media that have been out for less time. I'd like the public to get a reputable report about this

I have had that book on my bedtable for a while, and have read most of it. A review is on the way. It is in many ways a fine book with lots of good advice, but at the same time both the book itself and the marketing of the book is really more like some manual for a pyramid scam than a fishing book. I will bump the review in the pile and get it published as soon as possible,

I am an avid nymph fisherman. I am kind of puzzled as to why I have not yet seen one review in any fly fishing publication or on any ff website of the book that has been advertised online for probably close to a year entitled "Why Some Guys Catch All The Fish". This book is advertised on a site called The advertising of this book just seems kind of shady to me and other anglers I've spoken to. I won't consider spending any money on this book until I read reviews of it in a major ff mag or one of the well known websites.
