The March 2014 Issue of Blue Ridge Outdoors is Live!

get more from BRO

The March issue of Blue Ridge Outdoors celebrates three popular passions among Blue Ridge outdoor enthusiasts: fishing, dogs, and beer (not necessarily in that order). Our second annual dog photo contest begins in March, and to kick it off, we feature southern Appalachia’s search and rescue dogs with heroic tales.

Also in March, we’ll take several spins around the region…looking at beer and food pairings, the youngest person to thru-hike the A.T., laid-back lodges perfect for outdoor dirtbags, hidden fly fishing gems you might not know about, and a talk with the Blue Ridge runner who set a first in the history of the Tour de France. Our former online editor Jack Murray tops off the fly fishing issue with a comprehensive run-down of the latest fly fishing gear around.
