  • Head over to the Sage blog for an overview of two-handed fly rods and techniques, from defining terms to explaining the difference between a skagit and scandi setup, by Mark Raisler, owner of Headhunters Fly Shop.
  • To help gather data on the dynamics of the tarpon fishery in the Florida Keys, the Florida Keys Initiative and Bonefish & Tarpon Trust are asking for the help of anglers and guides. If you fish these waters often, help with the survey to help increase awareness and understanding of these great fish.
