Dubya on the Relationship Between Man and Fish



Bush Jokes About Best Moment As President


"I would say the best moment was when I caught a 7 1/2-pound largemouth bass on my lake," Bush said, laughing.

Cheney went even further. He said when they pulled the fish out of the water it greeted them as liberators.

Moldy Links - Dead Fisherman Edition

The Dead Fisherman's Grotto


The Dead Fisherman's Grotto can be found northeast of Mossy Rocks Cove in the Adanian Sea at the Cliffs of Alonnog. Named for the warning given by fishermen that any who venture within will soon lose life and limb, it is considered a place of evil and many superstitions surround it, including the tale of the pirate Lyeael'k the Crimson Berserker and his ship, the "Tempest".  LINK

Moldy Links - Well only one actual link this week

The Fly Fisherman's Wife


Last Saturday morning I got up early, put on my long underwear and dressed quietly.

I made a lunch, grabbed the dog and went to the garage to hook up the drift boat to the truck and down the driveway I went.

Coming out of the garage rain is pouring down. It is like a torrential downpour. There is snow mixed in with the rain, and the wind is blowing 50 mph.

Minutes later, I returned to the garage. I went back into the house and turned on the TV to the weather channel. It's going to be bad weather all day long, so I put the drift boat back in the garage, quietly undressed and slipped back into bed.

There I cuddled up to my wife's back, now with a different anticipation, I whispered, "The weather out there is terrible."

To which she sleepily replies . . ."Can you believe my idiot husband is out fishing in this?"

A River Runs Through My Johnson


It was a great idea for a bachelor party - fly fishing, golf, cards, nice sights, etc. Of course, since it was a bunch of dudes without our female companions to guide us, we (well mainly just me) had a little too much to drink. After staying out too late on Friday night, I had a 6:30 am wake up call to go fly fishing with a few Orvis guides. VIA Rob Lathan LINK

Han Solo Fly Fisherman?

Moldy Links - The Art Edition

Amazing Leather Fish Sculptures


We've posted a lot of fish art over the years but Lance Marshall Boen's work put my jaw on the keyboard.

Each sculpture is a three dimensional painting that invites the viewer to become lost in the complexity of its subtle and dramatic surfaces. The rich textures and unique lines captured by forming, tooling and hand painting on leather completely elevates this work beyond any other traditional or contemporary mounted fish sculptures.  LINK

Fun Billfish Art by Karen Rhodes


In addition to the unique billfish prints you will also find a whole host of other crazy billfish inspired products. LINK

The Art of Parks Reece


Parks Reece is an extraordinarily gifted artist whose distinctive paintings, lithographs, and prints represent a complete aesthetic and reflect a sense of humor that is both original and great. LINK

Moldy Links - The pictures were smaller back then

We were recently surfing the Chum archives and found some really good old content. Some of it we forgot about, some has aged gracefully and some still makes us laugh. Inspired by our prior handiwork we're launching a weekly, "Moldy Links" post that will take you back into the Chum archives so you don't have to.

This weeks Moldy links were originally posted in November of 2005.

The Gods Must Be Crazy  (Even creepier given Dick's involvement in the Klamath salmon kill)


Our children also learned the art of fly-fishing from Dick. He loves the streams and rivers of this great country and he has passed that love along to them. Indeed, I would say one of the keys to understanding Dick Cheney is understanding fly-fishing.

Veneratio Bovis - (Some excellent local flavor)


Seattle Matadors is a secret society in the tradition of secret societies. Not like college frats or Skull and Bones, but like those old secret societies, back when they were cool. Maybe like Skull and Bones (but only if you think Skull and Bones is cool). Matadors' primary quarry is the sea run bull trout of the pacific northwest (aka Dolly Varden).


Ironman of Fly Fishing  (Fly fishing competitions still suck)


 In decades to come, when the Vail Ironman Fly-Fishing Championship of the World has acquired the respect it deserves, when networks are battling over rights to exclusive coverage, when shoe companies and nutrition behemoths are baiting participants with cold cash and long-term endorsement contracts, it is likely--very likely--that Glenn Lokay, the event's founder, will look back on the list of inaugural contestants and pause long enough to curse my name.


Treasures of the Sierra Madre


Hatches? We ain't got no hatches. We don't need no hatches. I don't have to show you any stinkin hatches!

Mexico is home to many native trout, from the San Pedro Martir in the northern Baja peninsula, to the great diversities of trout in the Sierra Madre Occidental on the Pacific slope of the Mexico mainland.


Idaho Steelhead Fishing Terms (Steelhead is a great name for a hockey team)


Drop the puck  -  Losing your grip on trophy fish while attempting hero shot.
Pull the goalie - Switching to trailing egg with indicator set up.
Slap shot - Lousy cast.
5 Hole - Code for your favorite money run.
Penalty Box - Where you go when fishing trumps what your wife had planned.
