The New Days - Seeing the Culture of Nan-Fang-Ao Fishing Villages

BY 李元YUAN LEE
IN TAIPEI

A hotel is not the destination of travel, but the starting point of cultural discovery. Mr. Lee renovated a 40-year-old hotel in Nan-Fang-Ao and renamed it 'The New Days'. He hopes that by creating comfortable spaces, he may prolong people's stay at the fishing village, helping them see beyond the fish market and seafood restaurants common to all fishing villages, discovering the deeply-rooted industry culture and the hardship of a fisherman's lifestyle.

Nymphs, Duns, and Spinners: the Making of a Hatch Guide

BY ANN MILLER
@ VOL 4 ON FEB 11, 2016

Ann Miller has a love for bugs & fishing, who knew! And she tells us all about it in 6.6 minutes.

Ann’s most recent project stemmed from her love of fly fishing and teaching. While teaching beginning and intermediate fly fishing schools, she became frustrated with the lack of comprehensive Midwest information on insect hatches, taxonomy, behavior, and flies to match them. An aquatic biologist, she decided to tackle the world of bugs head on, and the result is the Hatch Guide for Upper Midwest Streams. The field guide was published in January, 2012 (Frank Amato Publications).
