One of the true pleasures I receive from being a podcast host in the Fly Fishing Industry is the ability to meet some of the neatest people on the planet.
It doesn’t take long after meeting John Shewey to realize what a solid person he is. John is the Editor in Chief of Northwest Fly Fishing Magazine, as well as their sister magazines, Southwest Fly Fishing and Eastern Fly Fishing. He started as a writer in the inaugural addition over 20 years ago. I remember when this regional publication hit the market in the 90’s and thinking, what a cool, local fly fishing magazine with an amazing design and great photos.
John is also the author of some great, local Oregon books and a classic steelhead flies book.
We get into all that plus how the magazine transitioned from the tragic loss of one of their founding partners.
