  • We’ll take the bet that a four-foot, braided bamboo fly rod wasn’t the first thing you thought of stowing in your rig for a late-winter trip.  But according to Solitude Outdoors, their Braided Creek Rod offers “phenomenal” strength, flexibility, and sensitivity.
  • Ty Swenson writes about leaving Idaho for Seattle and the performance anxiety and pleasure that came with learning new water in “Journey to the Yakima.”
  • With spring peaking around the corner, it’s time to pluck out the dead soldiers and replenish the ranks of your fly boxes.  Tim Wade of posts the contents of his personal wet and dry fly boxes in the Cody Enterprise. (We think he meant trout are gluttonous.)
