Innovation / Achievement Kudos

IT WAS SPRING ON MONTANA’S Big Hole River and my bushy Improved Sofa Pillow sank like a stone. I was about to snap a Sage rod over a knee when my father said, “Tie on a fresh fly and try some of this.” In midair that tiny item looked like another airline bottle, which my father was prone to offer at any time, morning or night, on our fishing trips. When that plastic bottle landed in my hand I said, “What the heck.” About five minutes later, with a fresh fly dressed with Gehrke’s Gink, I was fast to a solid brown and my dry-fly life changed forever.

Travel Insurance and fly-fishing updates

When you consider that a week-long trip to Montana might have a total value of $2,500, after factoring in transportation and lodging costs, and deposits with guides, a $100 to $200 insurance policy is cheap protection for your vacation in case things go awry. And things do go awry, just ask the experts.

Back to the Past

NEAR MY FISHING CAMP IN NEW Hampshire’s Rockingham County, there’s this archeological site said to have been constructed by ancient druids or their precursors. Several large, flat stones have grooves—blood grooves, we are told. Now that the site has been physically restored, a volunteer 501c3 citizens’ organization is attempting to restore historical function as well, including the sacrifice of virgins (though only on summer weekends for tour groups).

Shop Talk

MOST OF US THINK THAT OWNING a fly shop would be a dream come true. Perhaps you have a favorite shop and covet the owner’s lot in life. Or perhaps you frequent an establishment that leaves you thinking, “Now if I were in charge around here... ”

Dark Spruce Fly

IF I WERE PLANNING AN EXOTIC TRIP TO someplace south of the equator, among the first patterns I’d put in my fly box would be Dark Spruce weighted streamers in sizes 2 through 6. I have an affinity for this fly partly because it’s one of the first steamer flies I learned to tie and, more important, because it always seems to work no matter where I fish it. To me an exotic trip equates to catching really big fish using big flies. Coq de Leon saddles solved the problem of tying large Spruce Fly streamers.
