    Wrote an article for The Wading List Titled Coastal Cutthroat in Salt Water. Enjoy. Here's one of the pictures from the article. This epitomizes salt water coastal cutthroat fishing for me. A drizzly day. A wide open beach. A fish at the end of the line.

    Am I blind or has the articles section disappeared from the forum? I seem to recall an in depth article discussing the difference between bulls and dolly varden but I can't seem to find it. Does anyone know if this is still around some place?

    Really good article on river ecology in the NY Times. We need more of this type of information, especially considering the crowd that is now taking over in Washington...

    I ran across this article in the BBC web site [the original url that was here is wrong. I have corrected it below] that describes some of the physiological and morphological adaptations of billfish and tuna that are key to their biology. In particular, the article debunks some of the more...

    I've been intrigued over the years with anglers who carry only a few patterns in their fly boxes/wallets, compared to the myriad of flies I typically carry. I'm gonna give this article some serious thought: http://www.flyfisherman.com/fly-tying/yvon-chouinard-lessons-from-a-simple-fly/

    THE STALKER As a stalker I am obsessed, studious, patient, my movements light and fluid; QUIET and I'm determined, relentless, stealthy, aggressive, and confident. Now that I'm retired I will have more time to develop and fine tune, even finesse my stalking capabilities. And it is my good...

    Introduction The purpose of this article is to help fishers who want to try fishing waters in a different country with some information on the differences encountered. In the UK I have published it on my blog. To keep the article to a reasonable length I am only covering trout fishing and I...

    Most of the press written about the north end of Yellowstone Park concerns the fine dry-fly rivers in the Parks northeast corner. These creeks and rivers in the Lamar drainage are at their best in late July and August, and every word written about them is justified. The lack of attention paid to...

    Fly Fishing Katmai National Park By Steve Buckner The Northwest Fly Fisherman It was 4:00 a.m. on the morning of the summer solstice and I was booked on a flight from Sea-Tac International Airport just outside of Seattle to Anchorage. The sun would not be setting that evening in Alaska until...

    Having spent over 15 years plying the rivers of the world with the two handed rod it became necessary to learn to teach the art and teach it well. Every where I went folks wanted to know what that rod was and how to use one. More and more folks were buying equipment and flailing away but there...

    Key Point 1: Depth Control Depth control is one of the most important keys to success in catching trout with nymphs. If your not touching bottom, your not deep enough. I build my nymph leaders with about 50 % 30 pound test, and then step down frrom there to 20, 13, 3x, 5x, 6x etc. When your...
