Wisdom Fishing, new online magazine for men over 50, launches

There's a new (or, at least, relaunched) online magazine out of Vancouver for men over 50 called Wisdom Fishing. It first appeared last spring, but had come teething troubles and, as reported by the Vancouver Sun, now it's run by a new editorial board of four guys who fit the specs (as do I) for the site: Bob Foulkes, Bob McCaskill, John Skinner and John Swift. 
Skinner, a recently retired editor at The Vancouver Sun, is the editor; a note in the latest issue says he "provides adult supervision".
"We have choices: We can live the last third of our lives in many ways. Men over 50 encounter new challenges and novel opportunities [a release says];  paths taken, paths not taken and paths to be taken. will be about choices and about how to live without regrets"
The site contains an article  “Ten books every man should read.” by former Sun editor in chief Ian Haysom, who has a weekly column for the Victoria Times-Colonist and is news director of Global B.C. Haysom’s top 10 include Bullfighting by Matty Doyle, Fever Pitch by Nick Hornby and The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway. Another column by John Swift explores a father’s poignant feelings about his daughter marrying.
