Tippets: Yellow Sallies, Hemingway Memorial, Irish Salmon Farming

  • Yellow Sally stoneflies appear coast-to-coast and are always fun to fish. Kent Klewein lists his top ten fly patterns for fishing this hatch, from old standbys to new designs.
  • Seven miles north of the campsite where Ernest Hemingway penned “Big Two-Hearted River,” the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Michigan Outdoor Writers Association’s will dedicate a memorial marker to the state’s native son. “MOWA’s members think it’s pretty special that a story about fishing on the Fox River 94 years ago is still one of Hemingway’s best-loved stories,” said MOWA President David Graham. “Placing this marker here has been in the works a long time.”
  • A planned salmon farm that would be Ireland’s biggest to date is sparking debate (and some outrage) among environmentalists, commercial fishers, and fly anglers. Via the BBC.
