    Winter Doldrums Redfish Slide Show

    By Tim Romano

    Its been a while since I've had a reason to shoot a ton of photographs in regards to fishing.  Last week I had a reason. Three days of fishing New Orleans, LA, for bull redfish with friends Gregg Arnold, Malcolm Robertson, Travis and "Bear" Holeman, and of course Deeter.

    Trout Unlimited Names New CEO

    By Kirk Deeter

    Trout Unlimited has named Chris Wood, currently TU's chief operating officer, to fill the chief executive officer's position held by Charles Gauvin since 1991.  Wood will take over February 1.

    Since Gauvin took the helm of TU at the age of 34, the organization's development has been nothing short of extraordinary.  According to a TU press announcement, back then,

    "TU’s budget was $2.5 million and it had approximately 50,000 members. There was just one staff person who worked on conservation issues.

    Florida's Cold Weather Fish Kill

    By Tim Romano

    Unless you were living in a hermetically sealed and heated bubble the past couple of weeks (or reside in Hawaii) you probably experienced some of the coldest temperatures in a long time. Most of the country was under a deep freeze for days or even weeks on end.

    Unfortunately for many gamefish in Florida, the ruthless cold was a brutal killer. Freezing temperatures were recorded along the coast from the central and southern part of the state for multiple nights in a row. Apparently this is not a good thing for saltwater gamefish that are used to much warmer waters. Many fish died from the extreme cold.

    How To Fish Like a King for 20 Bucks

    By Tim Romano

    Do you want to fish on twelve miles of private, world class trout water in the pristine Wyoming wilderness for three days with a guide? How about a $1000 shopping spree at the one of the best fly shops in Denver before you go? Do you enjoy lavish gourmet meals? What about flying there in a private jet?

    Write the Caption, Win a Prize...

    By Kirk Deeter

    You know the drill, and in this case, the prize is a brand new 7- weight Streamer Express fly line from Scientific Anglers.

    What many of you may not realize, is that there is a "Grip and Grin Institute" in Canada, where magazine editors, writers, and photographers are sent to master the form it takes to wind up on the cover, or at least in a spread, of a major fishing magazine.

    Five Ways to Spot More Trout

    By Kirk Deeter

    I love sight fishing.  There is nothing better than picking out a  fish camouflaged among the weeds or against a gravel river bottom, then making that cast and earning the bite.

    90 Fly Fishing Paintings in 90 Seconds

    By Tim Romano

    In light of the current events unfolding in Haiti blogging about anything seems a bit trite to me this morning, but alas - something must go up...

    Here I sit, shoulders slouched in front of my computer screen shell shocked by the the images coming in from every news and media outlet on the planet. Not unlike Mr. Merwin at the Honest Angler blog, I feel helpless and a bit depressed.

    Can You "Cast" Your Age?

    By Kirk Deeter

    Hows this for a fly fisherman's life goal? Be able to cast your age well after you turn 70 years old.

    For all of you golfers, you know that shooting a score that matches your age is an objective that not many old duffers can achieve. I can shoot my age now... on the front nine. I'm not holding out hope that I can break chronological par over 18 holes unless I live to be 123, and medical and golf technologies really improve in the next 80 years.

    Should MA Make Striped Bass A Protected Game Fish?

    By Tim Romano

    Tomorrow, January 14th the state of Massachusetts has hearings on bill H796 which would ban the commercial harvesting and sale of wild striped bass, make it illegal to kill more than one striped bass per day, and enforce stringent rules on the raising of farmed fish. This effectively would make striped bass a gamefish in the waters off of the state out to three miles. In October of 2007, president Bush signed an executive order making striped bass a gamefish only in federal waters or those waters past three miles.

    Updating Your Fishy Wardrobe

    By Kirk Deeter

    Fly fishers are usually pretty easy to pick out of a crowd. We like to literally wear our sport... from the Sage baseball cap to the sweatshirt from far-off Alaskan lodge, the angler's wardrobe usually includes more than a few signs of "I fish" and/or "been there done that."

    As such, I've recently added two new favorites to my fly fishing T- shirt collection:

    The "Steelhead Your Face" fishy take on an old Grateful Dead icon...
