National Fisherman

Well, hello there! Come on in and make yourself comfortable. So, how do you like the new-look NF website? Pretty spiffy, eh?

We're pretty excited about it, and we hope you are, too. Looks different, doesn't it? Maybe so, but here's what hasn't changed: our commitment to providing you with interesting and informative content, be it in the magazine or on the Web.

Take a stroll around the site. Check out the photographs and videos. If you've landed here, you've already discovered (or rediscovered) our blogs. Looking for news, events, classified ads, subscription information? You'll find it all and more right here.

That may be the coolest part of the new version of the website — as we go forward and continue developing new ideas for content, we're going to be able to implement them quickly. You'll want to keep coming back to see what's new.

What about this humble little blog? Well, "Mixed Catch" posts will cover a variety of topics, some serious, some not. It'll all depend upon what catches my eye from week to week. Think of the posts as seafood for thought.

Thanks for stopping by. Y'all come back now, you hear?
