    21 Jan 2015 | 7:20 am
      This week I ramble a bit with fly tying expert Tim Flagler, the hands and the voice behind those great Tightline Productions you enjoy every week.  We did intend to talk about material substitutions and we do, but we also go off topic here and there.  Also in this week’s Fly Box:  Does one spooked fish ruin an entire pool?  Can I start right out fly fishing in salt water with no other fishing experience?  How do I avoid a rat’s nest in the sink when cleaning my fly line? How to become a commercial fly tier.  Best materials for parachute…

It’s also one that doesn’t open with sweeping aerials of Caribbean flats or dip-in-lip anglers fondling 30-pound browns.

    The past few months have been extraordinarily difficult for our modern blended family. My daughter’s father, my ex-husband, has been battling throat cancer for over a year, and just before Thanksgiving we learned that it had become untreatable. Tragically, Mark passed away last Tuesday evening. It has been unbearably sad to see Mark’s wife, Jocelyn, lose her husband; to see his parents, Sue and Dan, lose their son; to see his brother, Brent, lose his only sibling; and to see my 15-year old, Sophie, lose her dad. As her mother, I am in unchartered waters as I struggle awkwardly to help her…

The results of the study, published recently in the journal PLOS ONE, found that deposited fishing line “was about one-third the amount at open fishing sites, suggesting that levels of illegal fishing were higher than expected.” Via Conservation Magazine.

After a few days spent searching empty water on the Bahamian island of Exuma, we drove down a twisted dirt road, past rotting cars and abandoned dishwashers, and finally found a promising flat. We were DIYers, looking to catch them on our own, but only if Ray didn’t kill us first.

As I launched the boat for the first time unassisted, I realized at the last minute that I forget the boat plug (keeps the water out).  I caught it just in time.

After all, we’ve all been on a trip where the net didn’t make it into the back of the pickup. Regardless, the old adage reigns true; if you want to catch the biggest trout of your life, leave the net and camera at home. Many steelhead and salmon anglers actually prefer to fish without a net. A net worthy of landing large anadramous species, particularly those that are few and far between, can be…

    Winter fly fishing can be a good opportunity to get out and take a break from your fly tying bench. The opportunities are certainly a little more limited during the winter months with many streams possibly iced up. Southcentral Pennsylvania can often offer several options in in the region during the winter with spring influenced streams and wild trout.Trout during the winter are not as active as you might normally find them in the spring and summer. Spring fed streams offer a much more consistent temperature often in the 50's year round and thus more resistant to the cold weather conditions.

    Here is an overview from Dr. Andy Danylchuk as his team embarks on an upcoming research trip to Kiritimati. In 2014 a research trip to Kiritimati quickly changed focus from bonefish to giant trevally (GTs).  This switch was prompted by a growing emphasis for targeting GTs and conservation concerns raised by stakeholders. During that trip, research was conducted to begin examining the physical and physiological impacts of angling with the intention of using the results to begin building best practices for the catch-and-release of GTs, not only for Kiritimati, but also throughout their…

    I posted a week or two back about the limited number of truly useful developments in fishing tackle. PD pointed out to me that I had omitted the now ubiquitous net magnet. He is right: that was an oversight. A magnet that holds your net at your nape, or on the side of your pack, is one of the truly clever innovations of the last decade or more. It got me thinking though, just how many applications there are for magnets in our sport. Firstly, Graeme arrived bright and early Saturday for our mornings fishing, and presented me with a gift:  a small “fly pad”, which sports a fly threader…

    Looks better than first Battle? Penn Battle 2 is the fresh successor of the Penn Battlethat has been for sale 4 years.It is always interesting to observe how the relaunch version compares to older one and what significant upgrades( if any) have been made. Judging from price, Penn still continues the same path which is the in-between model separating high end reels like Abu Garcia Revo and budget ones like Okuma Avenger . So let`s see how will Battle II step up to the challenge.   Penn Battle II Specs and Models This open face reel has total of 8 models. Battle II has gone as low as…

    We finally had a change to review arguably the top spinning reel in terms of quality anglers expect from it and cost- Stella FI. Shimano proudly calls it their spinning reel flagship model. We on the other hand are confused and wondering could Stella match its 4-5 times more expensive price tag compared to another quality reel like CI4+ by bringing 4-5 times more performance and longevity to the table? All of us only have good experiences with CI4+. We praised it in our review and top bass anglers agreed with us here. It is really hard to imagine what could top that, but we never can know…

  • Ice Fishing Alexandria in January for Walleyes and Crappies

    admin
    15 Jan 2015 | 12:40 pm
    Ice Fishing Alexandria Lakes area in January for walleyes and crappies continues to produce fish. Historically, finding the fish in middle to late Jan. and beyond can prove a challenge, but over the past weeks the fishing remains ok. The weather has been extremely cold. And the sub zero temperatures do wonders if the goal is to make ice. We’ve observed nearly ½ – 1″ of new ice per night in these conditions. Further, on any lake that we’ve been on in the recent weeks there is 18 – 24″ of good, solid, clear ice. This means vehicles are driving on every lake…

    Alexandria MN walleye fishing in December continues to produce fish. Over the past few weeks, it’s been a little bit tough, the walleyes bite has been off and on. The weather patterns, we believe, have been causing this. The barometric pressure has been erratic. Look at this: Alexandria Ice Fishing Barometric Pressure, 7 Day History This has made it hard to keep on the fish, or even to entice a bite when you know they are down there. But that is part of Alexandria MN walleye fishing – you have to deal with it. We have. Earlier this week we moved one of our houses and believe…
