  • Stowing wet gear can lead to unnecessary wear and tear as well as unwelcome smells. In a recent post Kent Klewein writes about using a dehumidifier to help keep gear fresh and dry. “Dehumidifiers are also great for fighting the spread of invasive species for traveling anglers because they can suck the moisture out of every crack and crevice of your gear in a very short period of time.” Via Gink & Gasoline.
  • Spawning redds can be damaged by anglers as they wade through rivers and streams. But damage can be avoided if you’re observant.  “Now is the time to learn the habits of the trout you pursue,” writes Domenick Swentosky. “Not only to find the areas where they spawn (and avoid them), but to watch in wonder as nature completes a cycle.” Via Troutbitten.
  • The most recent episode of the Tasty Bug Tying Series by Fly Shop of the Bighorns features Chris Schneider tying one of his own patterns, the “Donkey Bonkey” streamer. View the instructional video here.
