Snow arrived yesterday and gave us a foretaste of a white Christmas. The temps have been cold, but it’s good to be living in a place where you can fish year-round. This morning is another cold one here in central Pennsylvania, which makes grabbing that hot cup of coffee all the more enjoyable.

We have a video and four articles for you today, ranging from the growing number of women in fly fishing (which is great!) to cleaning your tying desk to treating hypothermia. Enjoy!

Tree stand coffee always tastes better.

Maybe you’re taking your coffee in the tree stand this morning, or maybe it’s in your usual comfortable chair at home. Either way, we have some good selections for you to enjoy this week. Pour yourself a full cup, sit back, and enjoy!*

*but if you’re in a tree stand or in the woods, enjoy the coffee and save this for later!

But for today, pour yourself a hot cup of coffee, grab a chair, and enjoy what we have for you this week!

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!
