Weighted Flies

”Fishing with surface flies doesn’t always work, so anglers must carry patterns that sink to the strike zone....”


Striper Problems Are Political Not Biological

We each averaged 30 to 70 fish every time on the river, and had more 200-fish days than those with less than 10."

Big Lobster Caught Off Maine Coast

”A giant 27-pound lobster caught off the Maine coast will be released back into the wild, said Maine State Aquarium Director Aimee Hayden-Rodriques....”
