Henry is correct - it is not a rumor. Here's a copy of a note sent to me by editor, John Frazier:
"I'm sure you've heard by now the news that Bonnier has opted to close Fly Fishing in Salt Waters. Obviously it's not what I wanted to happen but it was a decision that was out of my hands. It was a fun ride and I don't regret any of the time I spent working on my favorite magazine. It's been an honor to have worked with you and who knows, perhaps one day, I'll figure out a way to get back into the fly-fishing industry. Thanks for your support, Dan."
I asked John to send me an official news release but to date haven't received one. I have no idea how they will handle subscribers.
I had the pleasure of being a contributing writer/columnist and Editor-at-large for the magazine since its inception. I've worked with all of its editors and can say it was an honor to be associated with the magazine, its editors and my fellow contributing writers. I know the magazine will be missed by all its loyal subscribers. It was the best in the industry. Its stable of contributing writers were the tops guns in salt-water fly-fishing who did much to promote our passion through their contributions to the magazine.
