Check this out: Kype Magazine

Well hopefully you have been spending as much time on the water as we have.  I had to take a break from all the driving, bug slinging and fly tying to make sure you know about this awesome online magazine.  It is run by one of the best fly tyers we know (she is also pretty awesome with the fly rod too) Aileen Lane from MKFlies.  Follow her on twitter and instagram.  Back to the point.  Check out this awesome online magazine.  You can also click on the magazine on the top of the column on the left side of this page to jump directly into it.  You will love it!

(from the Kype Magazine Web Page)
A kype is a hook that forms on the lower jaw of a male trout, salmon or steelhead, during spawning periods. This is their badge of power and dominance, that is unique to only these species. It’s an explanation point, similar to the rack of a male deer—a sign of a warrior—a sign of strength. These kype-busting-bucks are known to burn-out drag systems, shatter graphite, and snap leaders as if they were a strand of hair–and with such a mark of strength, thus the title of our magazine, KYPE.

Kype represents a new and refreshing approach to salmon, trout, and steelheading focusing on West Coast rivers, Great Lakes tributaries and trout streams across the continent.
