The idea behind DRAAD magazine is to inspire you with amazing flies. From works of art – that probably never get wetted –to the finest, most effective and targeted fishing flies.
We like to think that creativity evokes creativity and, as we all know, images inspire so much more than words. That is why this magazine is built on a concept of 80% images and 20% text.
Be inspired and inspire others, and let us know how you feel.
DRAAD magazine is made by a permanent global team of fly tying editors. Beside the DRAAD team we like to invite, for every new edition, some guests.
Guests for this issue are: Evgenii Borovin: Russia, Heinz Zöldi: Austria, Peter Butler: USA, Christian Trilken: Germany, Christopher krysciak: Canada, and Andre Miegies: The Netherlands.
DRAAD team: Luca Baroselli (Italy) – Fabien Moulin (Norway)- Erik, aka, Svend Diesel (USA).
Welcome to the second edition of DRAAD magazine.
First of all I want to thank you for the incredibly nice responses we received following the first issue of this magazine. Starting a magazine is always a gamble but starting one in the middle of a worldwide crisis is a big leap into the unknown. I think I can speak for the whole team when I say that we were a bit confounded by it.
Issue two of DRAAD magazine is, just like no 1, mainly focused on inspiration, and less on guiding you step by step.
From the beautiful city of Amsterdam, which I haven’t visited for almost a year now, I wish you a great summer and I hope to hear from you somewhere in the middle of September.
All the best

DRAAD March 2022
It's a special month, the month of May, and special it is. Nature is pretty much bustling with activity and even the sleepiest of fly fishermen are waking up and coming out of hibernation.
When thinking of May – and as usual this happened as early as somewhere in January - I thought it was time to do a modest issue on mayflies (aka upwinged flies or Ephemeroptera). No semi-scientific treatises on entomology, just a bunch of mayfly patterns to inspire you this month and the months to come.
I wish you all a fantastic summer and tight lines wherever you go.
All the best,
Our guests for this issue are: Christopher Krysciak - Christian Kirchermeier - Guido Lauff - Evgenii Borovin - Jeffrey Cook - Tomas Skoging - Lucas Utrera - Mario Gonzalez - Peter Butler and Greg Liney.

I don't want to change the way you enjoy your fly fishing, far from it! But if
we (that is, this edition's guest tyer and the entire DRAAD team) can persuade at
least some of you to tie dry flies, perhaps followed by some dry fly fishing, this
edition would already be a succes.
All the best, and keep it dry!
Working on this issue: Christoffer Johanson - Alex Nava - Christian Ziegler Kirchermeier -
