Tippets: Streamer Presentation, Rising Temps & Small Streams, Extended-Body Mayfly Tying

August 15, 2014 By: Erin Block

  • Even if you’re drifting a streamer, presentation matters. Louis Cahill outlines why in a recent post on Gink & Gasoline.
  • Climate change is impacting small streams and trout feeding behavior. Bob Unnasch, director of science for The Nature Conservancy, writes a piece in Idaho Nature Notes on his observations of Silver Creek and Redband trout in rising water temperatures and what anglers should do in light of these changes.
  • Extended-body mayflies are beautiful but can be intimidating to tie. Matt Grobert of Tightlines Productions recently put together a helpful instructional tying video for an Extended-Body Light Cahill pattern that is approachable and easy, without compromising on looks.
