Tippets: Muddler Variants, Stressed Salmon, Macro Trout

  • For all of its variants, the Muddler Minnow is a classic. And the more creative you are, writes Kirk Deeter, the more you appreciate its design. Read more about one of the best flies for fall trout fishing on Field and Stream.
  • New research points to the reason why 20% of salmon are lost every year: chronic mild stress. “Whether salmon are transferred from rearing tanks to sea-cages in aquaculture or are migrating from freshwater to the sea, their ability to learn and adapt rapidly to the new environments will dictate their future success.”
  • Thanks to Derek Grzelewski, check out amazing macro photos by George Novak of the beginnings of life for rainbow trout, from egg to 52 days.
