March 9, 2013 By: Erin Block

  • Playing luck as long as he can, Scott Heywood experiences a day almost too good to be true, and he writes about this day-outside-the-norm on the Fly Paper blog.
  • The season of small flies is still in full swing, and Kent Klewein highlights twelve nymph patterns that, as he describes, “always seem to get the job done when I’m dealing with picky trout.”
  • In an effort between fishery scientists, fish ecologists, and conservationists, a joint assessment has been made of “marine species found globally in warm-water seas.” Findings point to the economic impact of healthy fisheries and the connection to catch-and-release regulations.
  • The Unaccomplished Angler is holding a contest of hats, of which fly fishers have no shortage. Submit your entry by March 13th for your chance to win.
