  • Ben Smith had a dream and goal of fly fishing for Lahontan cutthroat trout in Pyramid Lake, Nevada. Recently he made that goal happen, and shared his experience and tips on his blog Arizona Wanderings.
  • With travel and trade, port cities receive much more than people and goods—they’re also primed for invasive species such as zebra mussels, lionfish, and algae. Scientists have now released a list of the top port cities and ecosystems at risk.
  • To many anglers, fly fishing is more than just catching fish or getting out in nature: it can be spiritual, too. Rabbi Eric Eisenkramer, author of Fly Fishing – The Sacred Art, talks about his practice of religion and fly fishing on Sport Fishing Weekly.
  • Recently, researchers have observed two types of fish, grouper and coral trout, using “sign language” to communicate food sources within their populations. Via Discovery.
