Tippets: Saving Steelhead, Clinch Knot for Droppers, Fleshing Out Stories

December 11, 2014 By: Erin Block

  • Washinton’s Olympic Peninsula is home to one of the last native populations of winter steelhead in the state. A petition has been started to ask that the Statewide Steelhead Management Plan that was adopted by the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission in 2008 be enacted for 2015. Read more from Mia Sheppard on Metalheads, and sign the petition here.
  • Zach Matthews of The Itinerant Angler presents a detailed instructional video on tying a clinch knot for rigging a dropper fly.
  • The color of fish flesh can tell something of the species, diet, and life history. C. Claiborne Ray answers the question What Determines the Color of Fish Flesh?, in a recent post on The New York Times.
