Tippets: Skunked, Catch and Release Replicas, Frank Moore Steelhead Sanctuary Proposal

June 18, 2015 By: Erin Block

  • For many anglers, their fishing partner is also man’s best friend. And inevitably, that dog will have run-ins with wild animals, including skunks. Steven Brutger has some tried-and-true advice for washing a dog that gets sprayed, via Stalking the Seam.
  • As catch and release fishing has become standard practice, anglers need to find other methods of remembering trophy fish. A recent video and article from Colorado Outdoors Magazine features Colorado-based taxidermist Jeff Mourning creating a stunning replica of a brook trout.
  • Frank Moore is a vital part of the history and culture of Oregon’s fly-fishing and conservation communities. A new proposal by Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley would designate approximately 104,000 acres of Forest Service land as a steelhead sanctuary.
