  • Ian Anderson of Warmwater Chronicles points to an informative piece by Kent Klewein on mastering the figure-eight retrieve, enticing “toothy critters” to bite, as well as a dramatic video of northern pike vs. brown trout. You can guess who wins.
  • Fly Production Specialist for the largest fly producer in the world, Umpqua Feather Merchants, Brian Schmidt is featured in an interview with Trouts Fly Fishing. From proto-types to submission guidelines, red flags to theories of design, Schmidt covers it all with depth of knowledge as well as good humor.
  • Critical to wildlife and fish habitat, a coalition of 12 different conservation and sporting groups submitted an outline to the Bureau of Land Management for protection of Colorado’s Roan Plateau from development by oil and gas leases.
