Tippets: Whitney Gould Wins Again, Importance of Small Fish, Mississippi’s New Course, Fly Fishing Literature’s Elements of Style
- In the casting ponds of Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club, Whitney Gould has won her third Spey-O-Rama competition with a combined cast total of 525 feet, and a long cast of 135 feet.
- Small herbivorous fish might get no respect, but they play an integral part in maintaining the health of an ecosystem—which in turn benefits jobs, livelihoods and ecotourism, say researchers in a recent study published in the journal Ecology.
- For a first in “in modern times,” says John Lopez, executive director of the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation, the lower Mississippi is charting a new course, indicating “the river is going through dynamic changes,” which in turn is causing re-routing of roads and the planned “Mardi Gras Pass.”
- And if you’re looking to break into the world of fly-fishing literature, Mat Trevors purports to have a “a sure-fire formula for success.”
