We hooked our hearts to SCALE magazine 10 years ago. With the support of great contributing writers and photographers from throughout the fishing world, we started small and, year by year, developed a legion of fishing maniacs who shared our obsession. To all of our hardcore supporters, we thank you, and would like you to join us as we transition from our notorious and well loved flipbook, to a format that can keep us fishing into the future. SCALE will always stick to our stubborn standards of quality writing and photography, and we look forward to another decade of distracting you with big fish, cool stuff, and content pulled in from all over the globe.
