Tippets: IFGA Updates Rules, Simply Tenkara, Rogue Poachers’ Fin-Clip Tactic, BLM Grant for Youth Camp, Mushing for Bristol
- The International Fish and Game Association (IFGA), the entity responsible for certifying records of fish caught, has released new rules encouraging catch and release. While most are pertinent to fly-fishing, especially so is one that caps a fly leader at 15-feet.
- Most new fly-fishing fads require an angler to fork out some serious coin. Andy Snyder is excited that Tenkara simplifies, rather than complicates, fly-fishing.
- A youth fly-fishing guide camp in Bristol Bay has received a $70,000 grant from the Bureau of Land Management.
- Poachers on the Rogue are clipping the adipose fin, the sign of a hatchery steelhead, of wild steelhead in order skirt the rules to catch what they keep.
- Alaskan mushers Tim Osmar and Monica Zappa, who are participating in a mushing event in Wisconsin, are promoting the film “Red Gold” along each stop in an effort to raise awareness of the Pebble Mine in Bristol Bay.
