Tippets: Painted Lines, The Parent Trap, History of the Vise

  • Fluorocarbon tenkara lines are often difficult to see in certain light conditions, but Jason Klass presents an interesting how-to for increasing visibility on the water using Sharpie paint markers.
  • If you needed more backing for the principle of catch and release, new research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences has revealed that the best bass “parents” are targeted by recreational fishing. Thereby decreasing survivability of the young and ultimately, decreasing good fishing.
  • Vises are staples on every fly tier’s desk now. However, that has not always been the case, as Marc Fauvet points out, with history further explained by Dr. Andrew N. Herd.
