Thanksgiving is done, deer season is in full swing, and Christmas is only a few weeks away! Read on to find out what’s been coming from the vice this past month.
The summer of 2016 was really hot around here, and coupled with a vacation to a place along Lake Michigan, I (Caleb) was looking into what exactly it took to catch carp on a fly rod. Between Jay Zimmerman’s great book, The Best Carp Flies: How to Tie and Fish Them, and a number of good articles on that (including this one), I was intrigued. I’m still learning a lot, so I’ll admit up front that I’m not an expert at all.
Orvis has a great idea this holiday season: a daily “Moment of Chill.” What exactly is that, you might ask?
We’re under a week from Thanksgiving, which is the start of one of my favorite stretches of the year (between Thanksgiving, deer season, Christmas, New Year’s – so much good stuff!). By the time you’re reading next week’s edition you might still be in the tryptophan-induced stupor from eating turkey on Thanksgiving.
But for today, pour yourself a hot cup of coffee, grab a chair, and enjoy what we have for you this week!
It’s starting to get cold. Really cold. But that’s okay, because it’s November. There’s nothing wrong with that at all!
We have a good lineup for you today, ranging from tips on selecting fly line, tying your own leaders, wild edibles, beads on nymphs, and an entertaining video to close it out. Grab your coffee, pull up a chair, and enjoy!
November has arrived! It’s hard to believe that three weeks from now we’ll be recovering from a tryptophan-induced coma after Thanksgiving. For now though, there’s a good bit of fishing and hunting to be had!
This week’s selection is a bit different: along with the typical articles and videos, there are two other videos of fish (Giant Trevally and catfish, respectively) doing some pretty amazing things. Enjoy!
This is two days late, but here are some of the flies coming from the vice over the past month. Included are some experiments with new material and some flies that came straight from the need to clean off the desk.
