We have a new entry to the world of online fly fishing mags. A Tight Loop promises to offer insight on fly fishing in the midwest.
The June issue has articles on catching both smallmouth and pike, fly tying, streamer fishing, and more. Enjoy!
Reel Adventures of Fly Fishing
Each year the Pequest Trout Hatchery and Natural Resource Education Center opens its doors to the public for its annual Open House, which usually takes place the weekend before Trout Season opens.
The Open House allows the Division of Fish and Wildlife to show off the trout they raise at the hatchery and to create more community awareness around the value and conservation of our natural resources.
Activities include casting opportunities for kids, a fishing flea market, various conservation groups, fly tying demonstrations and many different wildlife artists, carvers and taxidermists.
Here are some pics from the day, including a man that was selling refinished bamboo rods for very reasonable prices. Enjoy!
Part of the fun of a lake vacation is spending time with my kids, teaching them how to fish and watching them in action. On Keuka Lake they caught smallmouth, bream, perch, catfish, rock bass, and got very close to catching a pike.
This year my oldest stopped using worms and learned how to use lures. One evening she caught more fish than the rest of us using a red spoon.
My youngest is still intrigued with the sport, but loses interest quickly if she does not catch a fish after 5 minutes. She can be deadly with her Disney princess rod, but doesn’t like to get her feet wet.
Neither is ready for a fly rod, but they’re getting close!
Here are a few photos. Enjoy!
