  • Skeletons in a tackle box: we all them hidden away somewhere. “Funny how the little things can take you back,” writes Jake over at Chi Wulff.
  • In Boca Grande, Florida, Bonefish & Tarpon Trust is teaming up with The Lemon Bay Conservancy in a project to restore mangrove habitat for juvenile tarpon.
  • Chris Erskine learns to fly fish at Mammoth Lakes: “If it weren’t so profoundly gorgeous, with Italian carmaker lines, you’d want to throw spitballs at fly fishing,” he writes. Instead, he gets hooked.
  • Kyle Graf catches tarpon on an 8wt Sage One, and will sleep when he’s dead.
