  • Steve Zakur writes about fishing for northern pike in the lakes of northern Saskatchewan and the honorary badge of “pike thumb,” when “The pads of your fingers bear testament to where your hand slipped behind the gill plate. You have a story to tell but the man sitting next to you wouldn’t understand.” Via Hatch Magazine.
  • Jen Ripple, publisher of Dun Magazine, is the guest on a recent Orvis podcast. Ripple talks with host Tom Rosenbauer about urban fishing and finding hidden gems in the middle of industrial areas.
