Tippets: Labrador Project, Stranded Salmon, Top Saltwater Flies

  • Aimee Eaton writes a dispatch from Labrador on a film project currently following portions of the historic Hubbard expedition by canoe and floatplane, in pursuit of native brook trout and landlocked Atlantic salmon. Read in full via the Orvis blog.
  • Hundreds of salmon have been found stranded in irrigation ditches in the Colusa basin, near the Sacramento River. Rescues ongoing since May have saved 312 adult salmon headed upstream. ”The big topic that comes up with this water year is if that attracting flow of Sacramento water is one thing that brought the fish into the canals,” says Kevin Shaffer, salmon conservation manager at the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. “In a normal water year, the fish do not get off course.”
  • Author of the recently released book “Feather Brain,” Drew Chicone shares his top ten saltwater flies for fishing Florida, from classics to new ties.
