North American Fisherman Celebrates 25 Years
| February 27, 2013
Minnetonka, MN - North American Fisherman is proud to celebrate 25 years of the best advice, fishing tactics, top gear and commentary from the best on the water with their March issue. This month's magazine also has a special feature on crappie fishing and Carolina rigging strategies, part eight of the Fish Response System (FRS). North American Fisherman is a member-exclusive magazine of the North American Fishing Club, the premier community for anglers and outdoor enthusiasts.

"The first issue in June, 1988 had a brown trout gracing the cover and inside readers learned about the six best trout flies at that time. Looking past all the photos of anglers wearing high-crown caps and short fishing shorts that were the style in those days, it is clear NAFC's mission is the same then as it is now - to help Club members improve their fishing skills and enjoy more productive time on the water," said Kurt Beckstrom, North American Fisherman Editor-in-Chief.

Readers can also look forward the NAF staff review of 2013 rods that made their short list and the NAFC Gear Giveaway (exclusive NAFC member benefit) offers an opportunity to win an Okuma spinning reel. Additional reads include: "The Harvest Factor" by Dr. Hal Schramm, which looks at what anglers say they want (great fisheries) compared to what they actually do and finds that they are often two different things. Plus, David Hart gives readers tips and techniques to catch the big bronzebacks in "Smallmouths Now!"

Don't miss the Field Test section powered by StuffStuff. More than 900 members tested products in this issue, including performance eyewear from Solar Bat and the Rapala Rippin Rap. To see what NAFC StuffStuff testers said about these products, and to learn how to become a field tester, visit

In this month's "Almanac" section, Jeff Samsel shows readers that just because a lure is called a lipless crankbait doesn't mean you only have to crank it.

Regular columns include: Research Update, New Products section and Fishing Adventures for the month. Plus more is found online at Readers can easily navigate to "Web Extras" from the magazine with quick-access Web addresses or by scanning QR codes.
