  • If you’re a guide, or working to become one, don’t miss Cameron Rhodes’s advice on how to do the job better. Perhaps most importantly: “Never lose sight of why you became a guide. Few get the opportunity to be guides and make their toys their tools.”
  • While the smell of sunscreen was not found to deter bonefish, sunscreen products were discovered to negatively impact fish health following handling by anglers. Read more about this research from the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust, via Fly Life Magazine.
  • Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife recently released a comprehensive guide to fishing the over 1,600 high-elevation lakes in the state.
