More than a little bit sad. Just got this last issue today, and it’s the last issue. As in, ever. Very sorry to read this but I understand that life gets in the way.

Another FF magazine folded late last year. That was my favorite. Steve knows which one.

My best wishes to Steve. I really enjoyed this journal.

I got mine today. Bummer that it is the last, but I get it.

Just curious, had this publication been going on for more than 1 year? I googled it and saw some articles from older issues. Wished I had known about it earlier, if was being published longer.

I received mine today. I am saddened by the fact this is the last issue, but glad I have the full set (4 issues).

Greg - This was only published for one year. Hopefully Steve continues to publish articles on his website.

Steve's website is a gem. Publishing a quarterly magazine would have taken the starch out of anybody. Hopefully he can decompress and simply write articles for the web site.

I got my fourth and final copy of the SHJ yesterday and was saddened to read the news that it would be the last issue. I have read it cover to cover, as I have every issue, now to go back and read it again.

I enjoyed the article that referenced Rocky Ford Creek in Eastern Washington. We used to fish that place every spring. There are some huge trout in that small, shallow creek. I remember standing on the silver bridge watching a huge trout swimming around with a still squirming baby rattlesnake in it's mouth. I guess the fish was waiting for the snake to die before swallowing it. Just a big worm, right?

Like Ray, I have all four issues in a place of honor on my bookshelf. I will miss having that arrive in my mailbox.
