    A #keepemslimy photo essay Since Erin Block's piece a year ago in Trout Magazine, the flyfishing community’s conversation on the negative impact of grip-and-grin photos has grown louder. The Internet has been saturated with pictures of exhausted fish held high and dry for your viewing pleasure for too long. And the #keepemwet backlash continues. In Germany, catch-and-release is illegal for being inhumane. The debate we're having can lead toward a similar outcome in the U.S., unless we get our shit together. One of the first things I discuss with clients is what we’re going to do when they…

    6 Feb 2015 | 9:45 am
      In this week’s podcast, we continue our series on fly tying with an interview with a man sometimes known as The King of Swing for his steelheading skills, but he also has been called Lord of the Flies.  Shawn Brillon is in charge of flies and fly tying materials at Orvis, and as a result he has his pulse on what is going on in the wild world of making bugs on hooks.  Our topic this week is natural vs. synthetic materials—when you want one or the other, which ones Shawn and I can’t live (or at least tie) without), and the future of fly-tying materials. …

      On the podcast this week I am all by myself--it's a topic I've been asked to address before and didn't require a special guest.  It's entitled "10 Things I Wish I had Known About Fly Tying when I Started", and although fly tying is a never-ending journey, I thought I would share some thoughts with listeners with the hope they will pick up on these tips, tricks, and materials quicker than I did--although some of them were not even around when I started tying almost 50 years ago!  Also in The Fly Box this week we talk about the "X" system for describing hook shank length,…

As anglers know, fish gills are delicate, but the science behind the fact is that they are thin-walled and are easily damaged if the blood pressure gets too high. Their unique hearts help regulate this, explains Don Moore III, senior scientist at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo in a recent article on “Strange Animal Hearts” via LiveScience.

Guide and Tres Pescados Fly Shop owner, Wil Flack, can relate. “Sometimes permit cooperate; oftentimes they don’t,” Flack says. And sometimes a simple business transaction that might take days to complete in the U.S. turns into a month’s-long hurdle for Belize’s only full-service fly shop. But Flack, year after year, continues to make it work. His formula: Patience. Persistence. Permit. “In reality, I love the…

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.

    23 Feb 2015 | 5:42 pm
    Jay with a big sailfish just caught on a Ft Lauderdale sportfish charter. It’s been one helluva great week of fishing in Fort Lauderdale.  The dolphin are biting excellent, some sailfish are around and biting, big groupers and other big bottom fish are biting… lots of activity out there on the reefs.  The cold snap we just had over the weekend has really gotten the sailfish frisky.  And with the stiff winds, it’s the perfect conditions for kite fishing.  Sailfish are concentrated in 100-200ft of water, a line of water about a mile off our coast affectionally called…

    Huge bull dolphin caught sportfishing in Ft Lauderdale It’s been a great couple weeks of dolphin fishing in Ft Lauderdale.  The dolphin are coming in pretty close, almost into the reefs.  The best bite is happening in 200-400ft of water.  Most dolphins have been schoolie sized, with quite a few gaffers mixed in.  The other day, Capt. Rod caught a humongous bull dolphin, a 50 pounder.  This is the season of big fish in Ft Lauderdale. Mick with a big blackfin tuna caught trolling in Ft Lauderdale Blackfin tunas are also abundant on the reefs this time of year.  They school up into…

    Nice catch of dolphin on the Mary B III - 32 keeper dolphins It was a great day for fishing today on the Mary B III.  The dolphin were snapping in 350-400ft of water today, just a mile and a half off the Fort Lauderdale beach.  The morning trip was good, but the afternoon was even better.  We started the morning drifting on the reef, picking up a few snappers and some other assorted bottom critters (grunts, triggers, porgies).  A few boats just outside of us were catching some scattered mahi-mahi, so we decided to go give that a try.  We went out to 350ft of water and set up on a drift.

    Kyle Shea
    5 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    Ready for blast off. Photo: Kyle Shea. We do a lot of fishing with spey rods at our lodges in Alaska and British Columbia. Most of the time we use Skagit or occasionally Scandi style spey lines, consisting of short shooting heads connected to a level running line. Distance is achieved by casting the heavier head outside of the rod tip allowing the running line to shoot out the rod guides. Good line management is important to keeping your running line tangle free and reducing drag from swift currents in order to achieve maximum casting distance. We’ve posted several ways in the past of…

    The Pennsylvania Board of Fish and Boat (PFBC) Commissioners proposed major changes to the existing delayed-harvest-artificial-lures-only (DHALO) stream sections when they met on January 21-22. Anglers who enjoy the special regulation waters will find trout harvested earlier and be sharing these streams with some who will be able to fish live bait year round if these changes go through January 1, 2016. The current regulations for DHALO waters provide year-round trout fishing opportunities using only flies and artificial lures such as spinners. No bait is allowed. Anglers may harvest fish…

We did our last run before breakfast, the 6k loop along the Menai Straits and past the Sea Zoo, it was still hot even early in the morning but the run was great and set us up for a day of relaxing at the cottage.

    A ‘proper’ holiday in North Wales isn’t really complete until you’ve spent at least one full day lounging on the beach, no matter what the weather throws at you. Once more we were blessed with glorious weather during our two week stay on Anglesey so in a repeat performance from last year we did our ‘beach day’ on Newborough Beach.After the 10 minute drive (it took us longer to pack our picnic) we arrived at the car park just before 10am. The weather was fantastic with blue skies, sun scorching the marram grass sheaths sculptures and a slight breeze to keep…
  • Fish from the Rocks at Aberffraw Headland

    10 Aug 2014 | 8:57 am
    After a lazy morning we headed over to the headland between Aberffraw bay and Porth Cwyfan where we’d walked a few days earlier to try a spot of sea fishing either side of low water. When we got to the spot we thought would be great to float fish and bottom fish we found it impossible to get on to the ledge we’d spied so had a quick rethink and explore and ended up fishing from a different set of rocks, not ideal as I wanted to fish straight into Aberffraw bay but the weather was great, seas calm and it’s always worth a go.I was fishing at distance with pulley rigs to keep…

He will lose his caution, and take the bait with a recklessness that greatly increases the chances of his being caught on the hook. LINK

    For many years I have been using Berkley Powerbait to catch stocked trout.  There are plenty of posts using Powerbait to catch trout throughout this blog for because this particular trout bait is so darned effective when you are fishing for rainbow trout that have been planted into a body of water.  But the other day I was introduced to another form of Powerbait that for some strange reason had not been on my radar for all of these years?  Actually it's probably due to the fact that because the dough style of Powerbait has always resulted in success, so I had never tried to…

    If you are fishing in a lake that contains stocked rainbow trout, a great way to land a grip of  trout is to "split shot" a trout worm.  For many trout fishermen (including myself) the term "trout worm" makes the mind turn to small live worms such as red worms, but in this case live fishing worms are not what I am referring to.  Rather, I am referring to the trout worms that Berkley makes which are impregnated with Powerbait, which as you should be aware is one of the most effective trout baits on the market.  Well, these little four or so inch long floating worms are a…

Powerbait and below I will outline how to set up for trout fishing with this unique type of trout bait. It is a set up that I have used successfully for more than twenty years.Powerbait is an extruded dough bait that has been specifically designed to attract hungry trout and in my experience is quite effective. Every fishing season rainbow trout that have been raised in hatcheries are then released into waterways throughout the country for the express purpose of being caught by anglers. I…

It seems like the water has been turning over forever lately but the topwater bite is pretty good, at least for the spotted bass (not the stripers yet!). I was using a Zara spook in blue shad color in 70 degree water temp on the chattahoochee river trying to get the stripers to blow up on it and caught this little spotted bass! Conditions were a little windy (its fall) and air temp was in the 50s.I will keep you Informed of my fishing situation,  stay tuned!

    “..the river moves on and on ; the heart follows, willingly, always glad to be Hunter, discoverer.”   Harry Middleton We describe rivers as living beings. The concept resonates and it allows for the attachment of a personality to a thread of water in Trout country. That seems appropriate. Yet rivers, if they are to be living things, are an anomaly, because they never die.  Sure, in the lowlands, some factory may dump waste and the river “dies”. But even there, look at the Thames and its tributaries now compared to how they were in the industrial revolution!  When…

These typically happened in public places like coffee shops, where other patrons looked at me sideways.

    I often read about “hanging a fly under an indicator”. I don’t get it. If the fly is hanging, it must be heavy, and if the indicator is holding it up, it must be HUGE. Maybe its just a turn of phrase. I did however try casting a thingamabobber the other day. That would hold a fly up. It was the smallest one you could get. It was like trying to throw one of those practice golf balls. It made a lot of noise, and went nowhere. When it did land it was with a great big PLOP. No thanks. I like my indicators small. PD says you need binoculars to see them, and that it kinda defeats the object.

    Every angler has their sights set on a successful day of fishing, but it’s more than just throwing some bait on a line and hoping for the best. There are different techniques used for every type of fishing, whether it’s inshore or offshore. As part one of our series on fishing techniques, let’s take a closer look at one of the most popular ways to reel in some nice game – trolling. As defined, trolling is a method of fishing where one or more fishing lines, baited with lures or bait fish, are drawn through the water. This may be behind a moving boat, or by slowly winding the line…

    Although it’s cold, there’s great fishing this time of year in Venice, LA! One of the fresh catches you may come across while on a winter offshore chartered trip is Yellowfin Tuna. Often marketed as ahi (from the Hawaiian ‘ahi), Yellowfin Tuna is a delicious and light fish served best raw or with a quick sear. For some reason, this fish always seems intimidating to make at home. Perhaps that is because it’s so often served with a gourmet twist at fine restaurants, but it’s actually one of the easiest fish to prepare. Below, we’ve provided a few recipes that are both tasty and…

    If you are considering an offshore chartered fishing adventure in Venice, LA this time of year, one of the most exciting big game catches you may see is the mako shark. Makos offer acrobatic flips, fast runs, and heavy fights that entertain anglers. One of the fastest species of shark, they travel at speeds up to 25 mph with bursts up to 46 mph. They can leap in the air up to 30 feet, and at times an angry mako has been known to jump into a boat after being hooked. This tough catch is one of the most popularly consumed shark species, prized for its meat, especially in the New England states…

    Red drum, a type of Redfish, are a streamlined fish with a dark red back that fades into white on the belly. Red drum typically mature by 3-5 years of age, and the approximate length at maturity for males is 28”, females 33”. Once a red drum reaches 27” or longer, they are called “bull reds”. The largest red drum on record weighed just over 94 pounds, caught in 1984 on Hatteras Island. When distressed, red drum make a croaking or drumming sound as do their black drum relatives. Red drum have a characteristic large black eyespot on the upper part of the tail base. Scientists believe…

    Fishing is perceived as difficult because it feels like the angler is flying blind, but seasoned anglers know how to “read the water”; that is to say, they can tell when fish are approaching even in murky rivers and streams.Reading the water is an art form, but it is an art form one that is easily mastered if you simply know what you are looking for. Fish, like people, like to take a rest every now and again. They rest just off the current and you’ll be able to tell where the current becomes weak simply by looking at the water. When moving water starts to create a slack, mild whirlpool…

    10 Aug 2014 | 5:39 am
    There are many types of baits to be used to catch perch some are better then others. i say some are better then others but thats just from my own experiance. 1.minnows these are little fish that can grow up to 2in long they also can be a big pest when fishing with small baits but These little fish are great bait for perch. Most other small fish are fine to use for perch fishing.       2.single maggot also would work to catch perch i would suggest to use 2 red if possible there are also caster but i wouldn,t recommend casters my self as i havnt had much look on them but thats…

  • Penn Conflict Against Battle II – Review

    admin
    21 Feb 2015 | 11:14 am
    My original intention was just to write review solely based on Penn Conflict: its features, pros and cons and just to introduce this spinning reel to people who are looking for a new one. However, knowing that I have recently reviewed very popular Penn reel named Battle II I decided to create this review as comparing one to see how Conflict matches up to the Battle second version. They can be considered quite similar reels, both are primarily made for inshore, technical anglers, but both can come in sizes that are suited to offshore angling too. Conflict costs a bit more, but overall they…
  • Daiwa Legalis LGL Review 2015

    15 Feb 2015 | 8:14 am
    This time, after quite a while, I have another Daiwa reel for review. It is Daiwa Legalis LGL. Not the usual Legalis which was launched 4 years ago, but upgraded and modified version of that. I think it is a great idea to renew old reel models and make the necessary changes to keep them up-to-date with nowadays innovations and technological breakthroughs. However, there are times when improving a certain reel type isn`t the best choice, because the first launch was flawed and unsuccessful right at the beginning. Could this be the case with Legalis which can be considered more as a low-end…

I can confidently say that Abu Garcia may have one of the most interesting founding stories and its road to the tackle market top has been all, but easy. This story doesn`t involve usual American success, that could have been predicted pretty much right when the company started out. Far from that. I would say that in many ways hardships and obstacles…

  • You've Tried Berkly Power Eggs, Right?

    JRWFishing
    28 Feb 2015 | 9:57 am
    For many years I have been using Berkley Powerbait to catch stocked trout.  There are plenty of posts using Powerbait to catch trout throughout this blog for because this particular trout bait is so darned effective when you are fishing for rainbow trout that have been planted into a body of water.  But the other day I was introduced to another form of Powerbait that for some strange reason had not been on my radar for all of these years?  Actually it's probably due to the fact that because the dough style of Powerbait has always resulted in success, so I had never tried to…
  • Do You Know How To Split Shot A Berkley Trout Worm?

    JRWFishing
    22 Feb 2015 | 7:30 am
    If you are fishing in a lake that contains stocked rainbow trout, a great way to land a grip of  trout is to "split shot" a trout worm.  For many trout fishermen (including myself) the term "trout worm" makes the mind turn to small live worms such as red worms, but in this case live fishing worms are not what I am referring to.  Rather, I am referring to the trout worms that Berkley makes which are impregnated with Powerbait, which as you should be aware is one of the most effective trout baits on the market.  Well, these little four or so inch long floating worms are a…
  • A Trout Fishing Technique That You May Have Never Heard Of

    JRWFishing
    16 Feb 2015 | 2:41 pm
    It's no secret, at least not to us, that crayfish are as effective a trout bait as there is when it comes to fishing for trout.   We always  have a small crayfish crank bait or two in our fishing vest, but  we end up utilizing them much less often than we probably should.  And we have and do use live crayfish as bait for trout from time to time, but not as often as we would like due to how much of a pain in the butt it is.  But recently we were introduced to a trout fishing technique involving this extremely effective trout bait that we weren't previously aware…
  • How To Set Up For Trout Fishing With Powerbait

    One of the easiest and most popular ways to catch a rainbow trout or two is by fishing with Powerbait. Powerbait and below I will outline how to set up for trout fishing with this unique type of trout bait. It is a set up that I have used successfully for more than twenty years.Powerbait is an extruded dough bait that has been specifically designed to attract hungry trout and in my experience is quite effective. Every fishing season rainbow trout that have been raised in hatcheries are then released into waterways throughout the country for the express purpose of being caught by anglers. I…

    And you thought your lake was crowded when you head out ice fishing.  They don't play games in Minnesota when it comes to catching a fish or two through the ice, as you can see in the picture from Cleveland.com.  There are some rainbow trout being caught in and around that city as well, if you're in the area?
