  • A bonefish (and bacon) addict, Bjorn Stromsness takes the seat in the most recent of Chris Hunt’s “20 Questions” series, talking everything from reincarnation to Yvon Chouinard.
  • Via Gink and Gasoline comes some of the best advice you can get for improving your cast for the salt flats: from double haul techniques with Bruce Chard to shooting line with Capt. Joel Dickey.
  • New rules proposed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission could make tarpon a catch and release only fish. “Florida can compete with Belize and Mexico as a world-class fishery where an angler can go catch a bonefish, tarpon and permit all in one day,” says incoming FWC chairman Ken Wright. “But we have to show that we are serious about protecting these species.

  • Jeff Opperman reflects on unexpected gifts: March sunshine in Ohio, and steelhead making their way back up a reclaimed Chagrin River.
