Tippets: Toughen Up Terrestrials, Interview with Tom Karrow, Avoiding Redds

June 13, 2016 By: Erin Block

  • Foam material creates great terrestrial flies but can wear down quickly. The use of super glue and UV coating can help increase the lifespan of these flies, advises Bod Reece, and “Toughening up your foam terrestrials saves headaches and time on the water.”
  • Tom Karrow talks about his project, the Bahamian Fishers Ecological Knowledge Research Initiative, in a recent interview with Bjorn Stromsness via Bonefish on the Brain. Through the initiative, Karrow works to gather guide stories, histories and knowledge of the Bahamas.
  • Identifying redds and avoiding them is a responsibility of any trout angler. “When anglers have a lack of knowledge regarding what redds look like,” writes Ameen Hosain, “it increases the chance of disturbing the redds and ultimately harming the stream’s trout population.”
