Tippets: Improve Your Double Haul, Salmon Return to the Elwha River, Lost (and Found) Finger

September 29, 2012 By: Erin Block

  • Peter Kutzer of the Orvis Fly Fishing School in Manchester, Vermont is featured in the recent installment of “Ask a Fly-Fishing Instructor,” focused on improving your double haul.
  • John McMillan, biologist with NOAA Fisheries, is spending his fall on the Elwha River, documenting the return of salmon for the first time since the dam was built in 1910. And as Lynda V. Mapes of the Seattle Times writes, “Lucky for the rest of us, John is also an extraordinary photographer.”
  • Out of Priest Lake, Idaho, comes a story of lost and found. Strangely, the found item is a wakeboarder’s finger, discovered in the belly of a lake trout by a very surprised angler.
