Winter Park, FL – World Publications Fishing Group Publisher Glenn Hughes announced today the appointment of Ted Lund to Editor of Fly Fishing in Salt Waters magazine. Lund moves to his new position from another World title, Sport Fishing, where he was Managing Editor.
“Ted is very focused and excited over the prospect of taking Fly Fishing in Salt Waters to new heights,” Hughes says. “We really couldn’t have found a better person to take over the magazine. In addition to his skills as an accomplished editor, Ted has great knowledge and affinity for the fishing industry and fly fishing in particular.”
Prior to his tenure at Sport Fishing, Lund worked for the Associated Press and The Miami Herald. He also has served as an editor in Key West, Florida, for the Citizen and Solares Hill newspapers. On the water off Key West, Lund was a light tackle and fly fishing guide specializing in tournament and competitive fishing. He and his clients have held 27 International Game Fish Association world records, and his fly patterns have accounted for dozens of other records.
“Having been a frequent contributor to_ Fly Fishing in Salt Waters_ – starting with the first issue – I consider this an incredible opportunity,” says Lund. “For more than 10 years, the magazine has been the leading authority on our sport. I look forward to carrying on that tradition and working with the top writers and photographers in the field, like Lefty Kreh, Stu Apte, Barry and Cathy Beck, Bob Popovics, John Cave, Nick Curcione, Dan Blanton and Flip Pallot. The masthead really reads like a who’s who of our sport.”
Lund will be replaced as Managing Editor of Sport Fishing by Jessica Chapman. Chapman has been with World for more than eight years, the last two as Managing Editor for_ Fly Fishing in Salt Waters_. Chapman began her career at World working for its travel title Caribbean Travel & Life before moving over to the fishing division.
“We’re very fortunate that World Publications has a very deep bench of great editors. Jessica’s experience with the fishing group will make the transition to Sport Fishing a smooth one,” added Hughes. “We have the best magazine in the field and Jessica will only help strengthen that position.”
Fly Fishing in Salt Waters is published six times a year by World while Sport Fishing produces ten issues through the year.
