Welcome to AKFF select.

This is a virtual magazine of some of the best AKFF content produced over the month, with contributions from a variety of AKFF members (that had no idea they were contributing). The aim of AKFF select is to promote the best content to further encourage quality contributions from AKFF members. These select threads will be captured in this monthly magazine style format for the enjoyment of members and guests for all time.

Summer is proving a boon for content as evidenced by the delay in publication of this issue. So many monster fish, mouthwatering stories and tactical tid bits to trawl through. The December issue also sees the first AKFF mini-series as Murd publishes the first part of another epic encounter with the Gulf Country of far north Queensland. Those of you that have yet to experience Murd's gift for adventure, photography and prose are in for a real treat.

In this issue:
