Fish Schtick Podcast – Episode 22 – Guest Jeff Galbraith
Conventional wisdom says the last thing you would want to do is launch a new print fly fishing publication in this new world of on-line media. Well our guest on this week’s episode of The Schtick does not subscribe to conventional wisdom. Jeff Galbraith and his team have recently launched The Flyfish Journal, fly fishing’s coffee-table bible that covers fly fishing’s icons, environment, and global culture. Jeff has left a number of perfectly good jobs to pursue his passion ultimately ending up in Bellingham WA, where he owns and operates Funny Feelings a high end media, content event company focused on mountain culture. Funny Feelings also publishes Frequency, the Snowboarder’s Journal and The Ski Journal both of which combine award winning photography, writing and exceptional production quality. We’ll hear more from Jeff later but first, what’s new at Recycled Fish

Guest Intro / Interview
In the world of fly fishing magazines there was one glaring hole, a true journal style publication that spoke to as Jeff Galbraith likes to describe it the culture of freaks and fanatics that has provided us an island of non sensical joy in a world of over efficiency. Jeff’s publications Frequency and The Ski Journal spoke to that culture in the world of snow so it was only natural that he took that concept and his true passion for fly fishing and launched The Flyfish Journal. The premier issue recently launched to rave reviews and he’s currently hard at work on issue two…Jeff, welcome to the Fish Schtick.
