AKFF Select
September 2012

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.

Spring has sprung in name only, with the southern states being remarkably quiet this month. This has given people time to contemplate what it takes to make a safer summer, with a bumper contribution on safety. The expected winter dominance from the warmer north has arrived in spring with a plethora of pelagics gracing the pages of AKFF select. Meanwhile, those of us from the south just want the snow to stop falling. Not jealous, honest.
