  • Former tattoo artist Pat Cohen has made a career of tying deer-hair flies that also serve as “functional art.” Learn more about Cohen and his craft in a recent episode and article of the “Made” series via Bloomberg Business.
  • Steelhead might not be the first species to come to mind when you think about tenkara, but fishing for them with this method might help you up your game, says Tim Harris. “Swinging flies with tenkara has taught me all the nuances of controlling a swing and has let me feel a lot of grabs and land a lot of fish swinging flies on a long rod,” writes Harris, “all great practice for steelheading.”
