    From Change.org petition "FEB 2, 2018 - The Commissioners just voted unanimously against the PEOPLE in voting down our request to convert the NOF policy to a rule. Ron Warren recommended a NO vote, and every Commissioners voted NO! It was apparent that the department staff (based on a briefing...

    It's so funny how the guide checks his client when he goes for the fish shot at the end of the video. (at 3:10). It reminds me of getting my hand caught in the cookie jar when I was little.

    I took a friend to the doctor for a procedure this morning and spent 3 ½ hours reading some fly fishing magazines I brought with me. OK, who spends 3 ½ hours taking a friend to the doctor – well me. The point is the fly fishing magazines. They were all good with the appropriate articles on...

    was able to sneak out of work a couple hours early to get some casting practice on my new 8-wt echo ion-xl with galvan reel. Wind was heavy but that rod really shoots line! Only saw a couple fish in the 2.5 hours I fished, way out of casting range. Didn't get any bites. Wind topped out at 23...

    I did find some birds of another type... With all the deer hunters and their huge travel trailers all over the local forest areas I went looking for something other than grouse (plus I'd hate to get shot). Here's the funny and sad part, funny that I have a standard poodle, sad that she's 15...

    I'm using a cheap set of waders ( Redington Crosswater )( in a float tube) that, after a couple of months, are leaving me with a wet behind. So I pumped them up and used soapy water to find that the seam was bubbling. I used Aqua Seal on the seam.. no more bubbles but still get a wet behind...

    Well, it was time for the biannual visit to my family in the Boston area. At my request, my brother contacted Randy Sigler, a fishing guide out of Marblehead and owner of a kid's fishing camp. Randy's company is quite busy in the summer. Eight boats take out groups of kids fishing in the...

    I can't believe that I did so well catching big LMB at the farm lake and now it sucks. Went out again today (didn't want to take the hour drive both ways to fish for trout) and was rewarded with a single 7-inch bass for my efforts. I did see something that made my heart drop and most likely...

    First cut; more of a look at a different wing material - the rib will be omitted next time and the wing will get a darker dye job. Tied here as a green drake/flav; change color/size to suit your needs. hook - Dai Riki 135 #12 thread - Danville 6/0 olive core - 10lb mono tail - moose body rib -...

    Got out at 5am this morning and went to a MA13 beach at high. A few casts in I had a 20" fish(pretty sure it was a BM) follow my fly all the way to my feet practically and then give up. I didn't have a bite or a sniff for the next 3 hours... during that time I was walking along the beach and...

    On my friend suggestion I purchase a 2 oz bottle to give it a try here are my opinion on it. I used on an Bamboo blank piece had to apply several coats to completely cover the threads, dries in an hour or less so it would be great for simple repair jobs, easy clean up with just water that's a...
