Tippets: Thirty Days of Tying, Winterizing Fly Lines, Mapping Fishery Needs

  • After thirty days, thirty flies, and thirty posts, Justin Keen has amassed quite the collection on his blog (not to mention accomplished quite the feat). So head over to Stream 2 Stream where you’ll find the complete log of posts for the month-long series, “Thirty Days of Tying,” along with recipes for each fly.
  • Iced-up guides and stiff lines are problems presented by most winter fishing. However, Kirk Deeter offers some great suggestions for combating both on Field & Stream’s “Fly Talk.”
  • We all know waters that were “better fishing” years ago, which most of the time initiates nostalgia and regrets to have not been born decades earlier. Brian Kozminski tells the story of one of his local waters and of volunteers with Michigan’s Miller-Van Winkle Chapter of Trout Unlimited, as they map brown trout redds in effort to track habitat needs, restoring the fishery for future generations.
