Tippets: Regeneration Techniques, Salmon Forests, Emerging Mayfly Pattern

  • Examining regeneration abilities of fish and other species such as salamanders, researchers are studying how these natural processes could be used to further human medicine and therapies. Dave Wolak explains on The Lateral Line via Field & Stream.
  • Home to all five species of wild Pacific salmon, Alaska’s Chugach and Tongass national forests provide critical habitat and help contribute to healthy returning population runs. “Science has taught us that good habitat means higher fish production, so we bank on that,” says Don Martin, the aquatic and fish program leader for the Alaska Region.
  • After careful observation of emerging mayflies, the SRM Emerger was born. Check out the realistic pattern and tying instructions from Ulf Hagström via The Way of the Fly.
