What Our Readers Are Saying

"I agree with the feedback you have received about Hatches. This is by far the best magazine I have seen that shares the wealth of knowledge without the additional 30 pages of vendor advertisements. I understand they are needed revenue but it is refreshing to see the quality of your articles etc. without having to thumb through all of the ads. I also take three other periodicals that are OK but no where nearly as good as Hatches. I wish you continued success and would like the opportunity to have 3 year subscriptions some time. Thanks again for all of your hard work and excellent presentation in Hatches. Best of luck, I wish you a long life and can't wait until you are recognized as the number one periodical presenting fly fishing knowledge. "

"I received my issue of Hatches this weekend and I have not been able to put it down. I have subscribed to many fly fishing and fly tying mags before. Yours is the first that I have seen that I can get some use out of. Nearly every article is something that pertains to me and I need all the help I can get. I don't know how you can keep this up but I will be watching for my next issue. Thank for all the hard work the staff has done. Very well done. Thank you."

Frank Moore Wild Steelhead Sanctuary

Oregon’s North Umpqua River is one of the most important ecological areas in the Northwest, providing more than many miles of high-quality habitat for salmon, steelhead, trout and other native species. And Steamboat Creek is the most productive steelhead tributary on the North Umpqua. It deserves protection as a steelhead sanctuary, and it is only fitting to also honor World War II veteran and conservation legend Frank Moore in doing so.
