Thank you for viewing the inaugural issue of  On The Fly Magazine. We hope you enjoy the articles, photography and videos as much as the contributors have enjoyed creating them.  Chances are that if you are viewing this magazine, you know the joy of chasing birds and fish in your home territory and afar.  OTFM will focus on both, the near and the far.  Life is short.  Make it a good ride.  Oh, and one other thing, share OTFM with a friend!
