Adam Feuerman and Alex Beck sit down and talk about their new project In Search of Grande which depicts their adventure in Baha Mexico in search for a ‘Grande’ roosterfish. Adam tells us, “Our trip was an adventure. To me, the definition of adventure is an exciting experience filled with highs, lows, and the eventual earned success. We definitely experienced that and I think many people can relate. The important thing is that we stayed positive. It’s easy to lose focus and optimism when things aren’t working out. It’s hard to stay driven and committed, but that’s what it takes to be successful in anything. Our story could not have written itself any better and that is why fisherman and non-fisherman alike should relate to this story..”
Dylan Drebitko is our featured photographer. Dylan is a new contributor and we look forward to working with him more in 2015. Make sure you check out his awesome black and white photography.
This is Fly Magazine has partnerships with Trout Unlimited, Bonefish Tarpon Trust, Casting for Recovery, Casting 4 A Cure, and Project Healing Waters. These relationships mean a lot to This is Fly Magazine and we plan to continue to work closely with each organization to benefit their cause in 2015.
The multimillion-selling rapper traces his roots back to Mississippi
Twenty years after the release of Nas’s groundbreaking debut album ‘Illmatic,’ NAS: TIME IS ILLMATIC takes us into the heart of his creative process. Returning to his childhood home in Queensbridge, Nas shares stories of his upbringing, his influences — from the music of his jazz musician father Olu Dara to the burgeoning hip-hop scene in New York City — and the obstacles he faced before his major label signing at age 19. Featuring interviews with his ‘Illmatic’ producers (Large Professor, Pete Rock, Q-Tip, L.E.S., and DJ Premier) and musical peers (including Pharrell Williams and Alicia Keys), NAS: TIME IS ILLMATIC is a thrilling account of Nas’s evolution from a young street poet to a visionary MC.

In 1944, 20-year-old Frank Moore landed on the beaches of Normandy. Crossing through the occupied French countryside, the young soldier daydreamed about coming back in peacetime to fish the bucolic streams. Now 90 but with the energy of a far younger man, Moore completes his dream with his wife and son by his side. This extraordinary story of a dream deferred, and ultimately fulfilled, proves that the scars of the past can be healed.
