  • Brothers Zack and Travis Boughton of Montana Wild have garnered attention and praised for their hunting and fly fishing short films. Recently, they sat down with Jake McGlothlin for a two-part interview ranging on topics from technique and inspiration to gear and equipment.
  • Ottawa is laying the regulatory groundwork for a resurgence of the controversial B.C. fish farm industry, sweeping aside concerns about wild fish populations and pollution to take advantage of a growing demand for seafood.  “I think it’s quite irresponsible to be considering expanding the industry at this point,” says Watershed Watch executive director Craig Orrsaid. “They seem to be abandoning wild fish protection on this coast.” Via The Vancouver Sun.
  • A recent post from Fly Fisherman magazine features an instructional video by Charlie Craven, demonstrating weedguards for bass poppers, from Craven’s new Warmwater Fly Tying DVD.
