We’re back on the Friday rotation, just in time to finish out the work day. Here are a few articles, videos, and an entire e-magazine issue to keep you reading over the next week – until our next installment of “Things Worth Reading.” Enjoy!
Dun Magazine: February-March Issue (Dun Magazine)
If you haven’t checked out Dun Magazine, please do. It’s a magazine oriented toward women fly fishers, but has great content and things to read (the tagline is, “Empowering women, not ignoring men”). Individual articles are linked from the main page.
Steve Dally’s Tailwater Soft Hackle (Dally’s Ozark Fly Fisher, Steve Dally)
This is a really simple soft hackle pattern for fishing a bit deeper in the water column (the wire body will help it get down a bit). For as easy as this is to tie, it’s worth getting a few in the box!
Teddy Bear’s Ear by Paul J. Beel (Frankenfly, Paul Beel)
This is a variation on a classic nymph pattern, built using Paul Beel’s specially-made FrankenDub Nymph Dubbing. Some version of a Hare’s Ear is always a good thing to have in your fly arsenal.
Friday Fly Fishing Film Festival 2.10.17 (Orvis Fly Fishing)
Here’s the latest edition of the Orvis F4, from earlier today. If you’ve never seen these before, Orvis compiles a few different fly fishing videos throughout the week and posts them during the day on Friday.
Vlog #1 (Fly Fishing the Ozarks, Brian Wise)
Brian Wise is starting to get into Vlogs (video blogs). This first one takes place at Streamer Love Fest 2017, which was held at Dally’s Ozark Flyfisher on January 28. Looks like a great time!

Randy Newburg is an advocate for public lands remaining public, and hosts some TV shows, an online forum, and a podcast all in the realm of educating people on what’s going on. This is a helpful interview and answers some questions about the land transfer issues at hand.
