Hardy Fine Art Prints


Printed on heavy 13” x 19” fine art archival paper using archival inks, and with an image of approximately 10” x 16”, they are the perfect size for framing. Each print is numbered and bears the Hardy seal of authenticity as well as a numbered “Limited Edition” certificate.  LINK

The Quiet Pool featured a bunch of these prints in a comprehensive Hardy post late last year. LINK

A Blog Is Born


We were lucky to be treated to a Dave Skok slide show at last year's Patagonia striper camp. In addition to being a world class fly fisherman and fly tyer, Dave is also a pretty fair speaker, photographer and fly fishing philosopher. Dave has launched his own blog which promises to add to the quality fly fishing conversation coming out of the New England area.

Homer Bound


B2 and I are joining Ridings Jr. and Sr. for some Cook Inlet meat harvesting on July 12th/13th (out of Nanilchik).  After we get our fix of barn-doors, we're ditching the boys from South Cackalacki, scrapping the broomsticks and picking up the 6 weights for some inland bushwacking on the Peninsula.  Are there any Chum Junkies out there that:

a) Have the upper Kenai and/or Russian dialed in for bows this time of year (or any other Ace-Up-The-Sleeve flow)? 

b) Any bored guides (foot or drift) that want to join the goofballs from Moldy Chum for a Sat/Sun (14th, 15th) flogging session?

Send us a note if you're down or if you have any scoop for our last minute wild hair.  Free schwag to those who come strong to the hoop.

The Carp Care Cradle


The latest addition to the Carp care range of products, the Carp Care Cradle is a very large

Washington fisherman recovering after cutting off own fingertips

With his hand wedged between his boat and a log, and his future son-in-law off getting help, William Messenger decided he was out of time. He pulled out a pocket knife and sawed off two of his fingertips to free himself from the sinking vessel.

Tonight's news reported that the fingers were recovered and reattached.

Ari't Hart Exclusive Fly Reels

The only fly fishing reel exhibited in the Museum of Modern Arts in New York is from his hands. LINK

If You Like Salmon Coladas....


#7 on the list of the 10 worst drink concepts of all time.

3 ounces light rum
2 cups crushed ice
3 tablespoons pineapple juice
3 tablespoons coconut milk
1 ounce fresh Atlantic salmon
Salmon head (for garnish)

Blend all ingredients and garnish with a salmon head.

If anyone at the party starts talking about the importance of omega-3 fatty acids, merely gesture at your drink and say, “Eh? Eh? That enough for ya? Later in the evening, give your salmon head a name and have it deliver monologues on the commercialization of independent cinema or why the French Laundry is past its prime.  VIA Chow  LINK
