Tippets: Interview with Beau Beasley, Fly Tying Innovation

August 6, 2016 By: Erin Block

  • Outdoor writer Beau Beasley talks about his work with veterans, his favorite fall fishing run, and the secret life of bluegills in a recent interview on 52 Week Season.
  • Highly pressured waters create selective trout, which in turn pushes innovation in new fly patterns. “This constant evolution is creative and engaging, and makes fly tying an artistic pursuit worthy to stand on its own,” writes Ross Purnell. “On the water, these new flies give us an edge that is partly psychological, but it is real nonetheless.” Via Fly Fisherman.
