  • Thomas Clennon, a former fishing guide for Taylor Creek Fly Shop in Basalt, Colorado, recalls taking late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia out on a guided trip on the Frying Pan in 2013. “In terms of fly fishing, he was pretty accomplished,” Clennon says, “he could handle a fly rod, and put [a fly] right where he needed it.” Via The Aspen Daily News.
  • From fishing barefoot to making a false cast, don’t miss great tips from Sean Visintainer of Silver Bow Fly Shop, on managing fly line while on saltwater flats. “Managing your line for less tangles / snags also hopefully reduces your blood pressure especially when dealing with species of fish that are already difficult enough to catch.” Via Sage.
