Rise Forms

I've got some exciting news today. I'm one of the peole launching a new literary fly fishing magazine. Read some more details below and then check out the site. I'd love to get some early feedback.

Launching a new digital fly fishing magazine these days is nothing new—it seems every couple of months one goes online. Many cover the “how to,” “where to” or “what to buy” of the sport. Others are for the eyes: slick images of fantastical locations and gorgeous fish.

While some magazines are for the angling libido, we are pleased to announce a magazine that stimulates the heart and mind of the angler. Rise Forms: Fly fishing’s literary voice, seeks to publish work that conveys both the passion and contemplative nature of fly fishing through high quality, literary articles.

Our website is under development but you can get a flavor of it from the About Us page ( and learn about the editorial board and more on both the general philosophy of the magazine as well as the specific topics we hope to cover.

We are in the process of soliciting articles from a wide range of authors covering an array of topics. If you would like to be considered for publication, please read the Submission Guidelines (

If you have any questions or comments about Rise Forms, please use the contact page (

We anticipate launching in the fall of 2010. We look forward to reading your submissions.
