I vividly remember being inspired by an Urban Angler ad of a guy holding a Giant Trevally when I was a newbie fly fisherman. Who would have thought that 10 years later I would have a chance to call on the shop that inspired me with that exotic ad, a copy of which is displayed in their Manhattan store.

Located on Fifth Avenue in the shadow of the Empire State Bulding, Urban is one of the most influential and unique fly fishing retailers on the planet.

What's next, teaching them to coat themselves in batter and hop inside a fryer?

Call them Pavlov's fish: Scientists are testing a plan to train fish to catch themselves by swimming into a net when they hear a tone that signals feeding time.

If it works, the system could eventually allow black sea bass to be released into the open ocean, where they would grow to market size, then swim into an underwater cage to be harvested when they hear the signal.  LINK

False Echoes

False_echoes_2

There comes a point in every fly fisherman’s career  where he is faced with the needs, the wants of  seeking out a gator of a trout, traveling to an exotic local, or some my say ”just the drug of the tug”. Track one anglers passion to seek out these places and  for others to share in his  experience from success stories to misadventures. Life on the fly.  LINK

More bad news for salmon.

Federal officials are not violating the Endangered Species Act by allowing fishing for Puget Sound salmon -- even though it kills up to three-quarters of the fish protected under the law -- U.S. District Judge Robert Lasnik of Seattle said in a ruling issued Friday.  Via: The Seattle PI LINK

Phish thing is a bad thing AND CHUM thing is wrong

Free_tibet_copy

Update from J.T. who is currently working the beat in Mainland China.

Boys,

Just thought you might want and update and fodder for a post.

I went to get a steaming helping of MOLDY CHUM yesterday while staving insanity while working at one of my Chinese factories. Apparently the CHUM is a threat to socialism and represents a threat to the Chinese way of life. Even a quick view of the chum may incite democratic feelings, and cause dissention. Apparently the free and sarcastic life of a fly-fishing chumster would be too much to bear for a local and would cause them to seek a better life and existence through the way of the fish.

What I am trying to say is THE CHUM IS OFFICIALLY BLOCKED on the mainland. As is your brother publication Wayupstream.

Just thought you may want to know your impact is felt around the world in many ways.

Remember the socialist “confuse us” say 

Phish thing is a bad thing.
And CHUM thing is wrong

CHEERS
JESSE

Clooney Speaks

Dear Clooney,

With all this attention being paid to canine fly fishing companions, what's your opinion of the Lab?

I find Labs to be intelligent, articulate and most have a fantastic sense of humor. Look at that K9 fly fish guru Trask over at The Drake. However, occasionally you'll come across one that's just a few cards short of a full deck.
