The magazine, the forums, 5 favorite species with two-word descriptions, and a future filled with more fishing. Read more about the life and times of The Drake as it approaches a 15-year milestone in the business. Interview by Monte Burke at Forbes:

Forbes: What’s different about this generation of fly anglers and fly writers?

Tom Bie: Other than an incessant need to film and Facebook themselves, not much. I think way too much is made of the “new generation” of fly fishers or whatever. Just like skiing or surfing or so many other sports, many will claim to be doing something “revolutionary,” only to find out that some old dude was doing it in the 70s with a beer in one hand.
