Redsides

Not sure why a rainbow in the Deschutes got elevated to the status of being called a Redside, but hey, why worry about it.

Wow

I'll put BC's scenery and fish up against any place in the world.  But I know I've got quite a ways to go when it comes to matching the editing skills of these chaps.  Their bigger budget probably wouldn't hurt either.


This is an awesome piece on Atlantic Salmon Fly Fishing.  If you can't see the video link, go to flyfishingfantasies.blogspot.com.



Cattle and Fish Habitat

I saw a piece a while back on a Montana ranch that had fenced out livestock (see post:  Big trout result from good habitat Monday April 11) to keep them from trampling streamside vegetation.  Research shows it's much better for the environment if cattle are watered without needing to wade into rivers or streams.  Hopefully people all over the world will eventually get on board.

Big Gas Rainbow

Non steelhead rainbows aren't often caught this size.  Yukon says it was caught somewhere in SW Montana.  Maybe he forgot where they caught it...

Reach Out & Touch Something

Scumliner goes educational.  A great little piece on dead drifting dry flies by utilizing the reach cast.  This cast leads to a number of dry fly takes caught on video.

Flip the Switch

Summer weather can be both very comfortable to fish in and difficult to catch lethargic fish at the same time.  But when the water conditions cooperate, it can be awesome.  These boys seem to be finding some productive water to work.


They're working a switch rod, which simply means it's designed to be cast two handed or single handed.  I've been working my new switch rod this year as well.  It's a Sage 7119-4, which to the uninitiated means it's a 7 weight 11 foot 9 inch 4 piece.  This rod is about two thirds the weight of a straight two hander and the casting action is sweeeet.  It's been handling the fish extremely well to boot.  My old 9 weight two hander will most likely be relegated to the extremely big water of winter.

Itchy Butt

This Alaskan Brown Bear parts the waters of a stream filled with salmon, scratches its "ask your mother for a dime boys", and chaws down on a salmon.
