For many of us, fly fishing is all about curiosity. The curiosity of what it might be like to catch a species that we never have before, or travel to a fishery that we've never been to. Horizons explores the inherent desire to conquer the unknown that consumes us, the places it takes us, and the experiences it leads us to.

|Who says SoCal is just for surfers?|
During that time, Blixt, who calls L.A. home, was fortunate enough to throw flies in Southern California, the Eastern Sierras, the Baja Peninsula, and Western Massachusetts. Blixt's most memorable fish? A 10" rooster from the trip to Baja (below).
Here is the impressive species list that helped Nicholas beat out numerous other anglers:
Barred Surfperch, Barred Pargo, Calico Bass, Blue and Gold Snapper, Blue Mackerel, Pacific Bonito, Cabrilla, Jack Crevalle, Dog Snapper, Dorado, Green Jack, Green Sunfish, Ladyfish, Largemouth Bass, Needlefish, Panamic Grasby, Roosterfish, Skipjack Tuna, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Trumpetfish and Yellowtail Amberjack
To learn more about the Big Year contest and the prizes for the winners, check out the Drake's Facebook page.

Ted Putnam, owner at Hawk Lake Lodge in northwest Ontario, has been wearing our WORKwt. gloves for a few years now. Here's a video of Ted fishing on the T.V. show The Wilderness Journal, sticking some smallies and big walleye. Not exactly flats fishing under a hot sun, but the gloves are still getting it done.

WorldANGLING Facebook photo contest winner for 2013 was Will Griffiths, a shop rat from the Pacific northwest. He had never thrown a 1o weight in salt before stepping on the bow of my skiff. One thing was made very apparent in the 3 days that we had together on the flats here in Key West, that there is no denying the young guys are here to stay. It was obvious the passion that Will had for the sport and the Gods clearly favored him. Featuring an original soundtrack from Miguel Perez, Knockin On The Door is the story of Will Griffiths and the rise of a generation in the sport. 12wt. is proud to have played a support role.
