Rod length and reach

Some interesting discussion on rod length and reach.  I think some folks may be concerned that using a fixed length line system will not allow them to get their fly out to the fish.  I personally think that forcing the user to fish a controlled line is a major factor as to why tenkara is so effective.

Insects in Trouble?

I seem to be seeing few bugs on the water than in days past.  I thought it may just be my imagination and increasingly faulty memory.

Another interesting perspective -

Fishing Older

When I started thinking about fishing as one grows older, I assumed that it wasn’t that much different, but frankly it is, because you are a different human being. I no longer fish the Middle Branch of the Ontonagon from five in the morning until eleven at night. That was when I was home from a far away job and the odor of a trout stream was highest on my ethyl index. It still is.
