Tippets: Tying for Spring Stripers, No Myth, Conquering Mind Games, “Top Hooker” Review

  • Folks tie flies for many reasons, but often it’s for specific species at specific times of the year. Pete Mcdonald takes some time talking to professional tier Mike Rice about what motivates him. In this case, it’s spring stripers.
  • Myths often contain more truth than we like to think. Hal Herring holds nothing back in calling on the classic story of Cassandra to spotlight water pollution in America’s heartland and why it should worry us all.
  • Much of fly fishing is a mind game, and as Kent Klewein writes, your subconscious can play to your advantage.
  • The new Animal Planet reality show “Top Hooker” is generating buzz. But Bjorn Stromsness takes the opportunity to describe a fishing show he’d actually watch but will never be made, because “There is no money to be made on TV when people behave themselves and when failure is more spectacular than skill.”
