Magnetic Navigation, Stepping Up for Tarpon, Trout as Invasive Species, What to Look for in Tenkara Rods

  • German scientists are studying the magnetic cells in trout which are thought to enable navigational skills, hopefully leading to “rapid advances in our understanding of everything from magnetoception, to evolution, to animal migration.”
  • Mike Cosentino offers a different perspective on fishing for tarpon, “grab your step-ladder and head for the shoal.”
  • Why we don’t use the word “invasive” regarding trout is something worthy of conversation, writes Kirk Deeter on FlyTalk. Is there a time requirement for such a thing?
  • If you’re in the market for a new Tenkara rod (or your first), Daniel Galhardo and Jason Klass share some things to look for. But in the end, “With each rod being so versatile, it would be hard to make the “wrong” choice.”
