  • Limited to one fly to be fished the length of the day, the team from Cache Angler based out of Logan, Utah took home the winning title in the Trout Unlimited  Utah Single Fly Competition.
  • From the Orvis Helios 2, to Patagonia’s aluminum bar wading boots, to the Kanga Kid, Forbes staff writer Monte Burke gives his list of the top pieces of gear for this fall.
  • Reestablishing alewives in Maine could not only help balance ecosystems, but in restoration of a viable commercian groundfish industry “the tiny alewife can play not only an important biological role, but a sociological and economic one as well.”
