Tippets: Kreh & Jaworowski on Casting, Packing for Wilderness Trips, Brokaw’s PHWFF Keynote Address

May 19, 2016 By: Erin Block

  • Lefty Kreh and Ed Jaworowski address the difficulties presented when casting a fly line weighted with heavy flies or split shot, and strike down the common belief that they’re too heavy to cast. They emphasize there is no one way, “Successful fishing, whether for trout on a woodland stream, tarpon on the flats, striped bass in a deep rip, or steelhead on a large West Coast river, requires different casts for different situations.” Via Fly Fisherman.
  • A successful wilderness fly fishing trip requires good planning and smart packing. Bob Terwilliger of Winterhawk Outfitters in Collbran, Colorado outlines how to gear up for a backcountry trip in a recent article via Orvis.
  • At the 10th Annual Project Healing Waters 2-Fly Tournament held at Rose River Farm on April 30, 2016, Tom Brokaw served as the keynote speaker. “Addressing over 300 people, his remarks touched upon service, volunteerism, duty, patriotism, and sacrifice.” View Brokaw’s speak in full here.
