Tippets: Catch Magazine DVD, Public Land Access, Tying Extended Body Flies

December 13, 2013 By: Erin Block

  • The 5th season of Catch Magazine’s fly fishing DVD will be released and ship beginning December 13th. The film, by Todd Moen, co-founder and video editor for Catch, features the essence of fly fishing: the journey and people along the way.
  • Many public lands are inaccessible due to surrounding private land and lack of permanent and legal ways to gain access. A new report by the Center for Western Priorities takes a look at the landlocked problem and steps to take for future benefit of hunters and anglers accessing public land.
  • Tying extended body flies is a challenge for even experienced tiers. Tom Deschaine of Michigan Dry Flies breaks the technique down to helpful and importantly manageable steps on Franken Fly.
