The Kryptonite Caddis

The Kryptonite Caddis is one of my signature patterns.  These things have only been around for a couple of years now, but they have been in very high demand.  I just delivered 21 dozen to Royal Gorge Anglers in Canon City, CO on Friday.  I am not sure how many are left. It's been a great fly for the annual caddis hatch as well as a good looking attractor on other rivers.  I've fished it on the Arkansas River as well as the South Platte and it has accounted for some nice numbers and nice fish.  ...

Comoros Islands and other minnows' chance to dream in AFCON qualifying

The tiny archipelago, which lies in the tropical waters of the Indian Ocean and has a population of around one million, has only been a fully fledged football-playing entity for just over a decade but on Thursday, made a giant leap into t...

Video Assistant Referees are an imperfect but important solution

When France hosted Spain in a friendly on Tuesday night, it offered the first "official" example of Video Assistant Refereeing (VAR) in a high-profile international.

Chicago and FIFA look on funny side after Schweini's World Cup mishap

Bastian Schweinsteiger's great US adventure got off to a slightly incongruous start when the Chicago Fire midfielder was left well and truly stumped during his introductory press conference. Indeed, the veteran was confused when a local reporter asked him whether he was hoping to score a goal in the World Cup during his time at Fire. Of course, Fire are not an international team as defined by FIFA and Schweinsteiger has already retired from international duty with Germany -- thus making the...
