Welcome to a new year and the January 2018 edition of CatfishNow (CFN) digital magazine and social media platform. January of each year brings the promise of new and exciting activities, and new beginnings.
I made my normal resolutions to lose some weight and watch out for my health. I hope I am more successful this year than last.
This month’s stories include one from California and the great blue cat fishing they have. I had the privilege of interviewing Steve Johnson for the story. Still out in the west, Eddie White has a story on flatheads from California, Arizona and Idaho. Back in the east Terry Madewell offers a story from South Carolina featuring cat women Layla Holbrook. Add in the regular columns and this issue has something for everyone.
On a personal note, I am very proud to start off a new year of promoting the sport of catfishing. I sincerely hope that what we do through the magazine is a positive influence on both experienced and beginning catfish anglers. There are millions of stories to tell and we only scratch the surface, but over time we can tell a lot of them. If you know of a story that needs to be told we love to hear from you.
As always, I wish to thank the great sponsors that support us. It is because of them that we are able to offer the contents of CFN to our readers free of charge. I hope you will help me thank them by considering their products when you are in the market for catfish supplies.
We are extremely pleased to bring you this month’s collection of catfish related content and ask you to share this issue with your friends, relatives and other catfish enthusiasts. By doing so you just might help them catch more CatfishNow.
Fish with passion,
Ron Presley, Editor
