Tippets: New Montana Fly Fishing Mag, Trout Slayer’s Move Up, Weaker BC Environmental Review, Cabin Camping, Peacock Bass, Lefty Ray Confesses
- The Spring 2012 issue of Montana Fly Fishing Magazine was recently released. This issue contains some great articles on a few of Montana’s world-class rivers. It is also available on the iPhone and the iPad.
- Big Sky Brewing Company, brewer of the perfect fly fishing beer, the “Trout Slayer Ale”, recently pushed into the top 50 breweries in America.
- For those early spring adventures, “cabin camping” may be the perfect option for those seeking some time away. With phone service, wireless internet, and heating units, the cabins are not quite roughing it but “There’s plenty of time to ‘rough it’ when the weather improves.”
- The Canadian federal government will limit its environmental reviews, leaving most of the work to the provinces from here on out. Many believe this will result in setting a lower bar for projects, especially in British Columbia where the steelhead water is as fragile as it is abundant.
- Peacock Bass were introduced in Miami in the 1980s and despite some fickle habitat requirements, have found a home in the canals of the city. John Merwin of Field & Stream, caught a few recently on a clouser minnow.
- Lefty Ray Chapa has wisened in his many years as a fisherman and has decided to pass along some of his knowledge learned. “I used to have a boat, now I have an ex-wife,” may sound like a country music song, but the guy has been at it for a long time so listen up whippersnappers.
