  • Marc Fauvet takes a look at foot stance when casting. “Fly casting and fly fishing are a series of constant variables,” writes Fauvet, “and foot stance is just one of those variables.” Check out some practical advice on The Limp Cobra.
  • After the September flooding along Colorado’s Front Range, restoration efforts are now beginning for local streams along with homes and infrastructure. James Garcia of The Loveland Reporter Herald writes on the work being done on the Big Thompson River.
  • Groundwater pumping that is needed for fish farms is making land sink, reports new research in Geophysical Research Letters. “ Using satellite-based measurements taken from 2007 to 2011, researchers determined that the land has sunk by as much as 25 centimeters per year in parts of the Yellow River delta.”
