The Fly Fishing Nation

This River Is Wild was started in 2008 as a way for the three of us to chronicle our days on the water, store the history of our fish tales, and share them with anyone who cared to read along.  Since then, we’ve caught more than our fair share and have been thrilled that we’ve grown a small following of readers who see life and fly fishing in the same ways that we do. Hopefully, we’ve strengthened our readers’ appreciation for being a part of the game.  In the future, we aim to continue to do what we’ve always tried to do: tell ripping yarns of fish seen, cast to, hooked, lost or landed in some of the most gorgeous spots on Earth.  

After a chance encounter on the water in late 2009, an instant friendship was forged with some like-minded individuals.  And today, we could not be more pumped to announce that that friendship has grown into a partnership with Fly Fishing Nation. FFN is a worldwide syndicate of fly anglers who share a passion bordering on madness.  Mainly representing Europe and South America, we’re proud to bring some American flavor to their ranks and to say that we are looking forward to representing the Nation would be an understatement.

Our thanks goes out to Stephan Gian Dombaj, the founder of the Nation and an insanely talented fly fisherman, as well as members Stefan and Alex Haider, who we first met that day in 2009. Joining forces will open quite a few doors for us.  We could not be more excited to see where they lead.  We hope those who’ve been with us since the beginning will continue to come along for the ride.

-Matt, Mark, and Adam.

Congrats, dudes. Ride that crazy train for all it's worth and then get the hell off. Oh, and please, no wearing your flyrod on your shoulder... maintain a that good ol' fashion home-spun American dignity that we've all grown used to on this blog... but mainly, good on ya.

Thanks Windknot, we aim to maintain what we have going on here and introduce a little of our style to FFN.

I enjoy your blog, keep up the great posts.
