When Reza Almaneih, a long time reader, angler, and avid fan of Trout Unlimited discovered that Tom Chandler was hanging up his pen to spend more time with his family, Almaneih viewed it as a chance to bring something entirely new to the outdoor sports market.
Yobi Adventures, Almaneih’s rapidly growing new company, is an online source for planning and booking fly fishing trips across the US. Yobi’s website is content-rich with detailed descriptions of fly fishing destinations, in-depth fishing reports and information on every important river from coast to coast. Anglers can find guides, look at various trip options and easily book their next fishing adventure from the comfort of their keyboards.
Tom Chandler has been chronicling life from the tip of his rod since 2006. His blog has acquired a large and loyal readership that remains with him to this day. “Tom brings a unique, personal quality to our website that we are certain our readers will appreciate and enjoy,” Almaneih says. Chandler plans to occasionally write new blogs for Yobi but according to Almaneih, “what’s really great is that all of Tom’s past blogs will be posted on the Yobi site.” Eric Shores and Yobi guest bloggers will continue to write alongside Chandler.
The combined fly fishing and business expertise of the Trout Underground and Yobi Adventures combination, is without parallel. The partnership will provide an all-inclusive resource to help anglers discover new destinations, plan vacations and experience the ultimate fly fishing experiences.
