‘We’re causing our own misery’: oceanographer Sylvia Earle on the need for sea conservation

‘Queen of the Deep’ says it is not too late to reverse human-made damage to oceans and preserve biodiversityThe world has the opportunity in the next 10 years to restore our oceans to health after decades of steep decline – but to achieve that, people must wake up to the problem, join in efforts to protect marine areas and stop eating tuna, according to the oceanographer and deep sea explorer Sylvia Earle.“We are at the most exciting time maybe ever to be a human, because we’re armed with knowle...

2021 Bassmaster Classic Started Yesterday, Huh?

  I was kind of asleep at the wheel on Day 1 of the 2021 Bassmaster Classic. I didn't even think about it until I unloaded the boat from the night's fishing trip. However, I did check my Fantasy Squads results before the day was out, just barely. With a great Day 2, my line-up stands a chance. But, unfortunately, day 2 has not been good for me yet this year.

Panic Button: Pushed On 2021 Frog Fishing Platte/Sullivan

 Sure, I caught that pig the other night, but I've taken 3 trips since then. Instead of fishing improving or staying about the same, it has gotten tougher each time out. And last night, I only got one hit in two hours, a 13.5-incher that I caught. I think the low water and hot weather have driven the fish out of the froggy shallow cover.  The stuff should be alive with activity, but I covered water on both Tuesday and Wednesday night trips because I just wasn't finding much for signs of life. ...

Hook to plate: how blockchain tech could turn the tide for sustainable fishing

Could using digital tags to track fish reduce seafood fraud, help conservation and hold everyone in the supply chain to account?In recent weeks, a new $50m (£35m) hybrid vessel set sail from Mauritius and headed out into the Southern Ocean where the crew will spend three months longline fishing for the Patagonian toothfish. By the time the fish are brought back, processed and sent to customers, consumers will know where and when that specific fish was caught, which boat landed it, who processed ...

FILSON - #UnfailingGoods for Father's Day

Father's Day is just a few days away and if you're looking for something special for a dad in your life, gear or apparel from Filson is the right choice.  I would even go as far to say that this holiday is the perfect opportunity to gift a bag or luggage piece that will always be remembered.  A few favorites include the Dryden Briefcase, Heritage Sportsman Bag, 48-Hour Duffle Bag, or one of the Rugged Twill Duffel Bag.  The Ripstop Nylon Travel Pack is perfect for keeping track of the extras too...

REMINDER - CCH Summer Sessions Kick Off with TFM this Sunday

PATAGONIA - Wild Fish Need Wild Fish Activists

One of many focuses for Patagonia is promoting "Wild Fish Activism" and I get and agree with it.  The longer I fly fish, the more interested I am in fishing for wild fish in their native waters.  There's real worries about hatcheries and how these fish compete and kill off wild fish in the raising and release of stocked fish.   Need a primer to know what we're talking about?  Check out Artifishal. For the month of June, Patagonia and Midcurrent are collaborating on a Wild ...

Snatchers at Whitefish, My Plan and Rods

 Will Whitefish be on fire tomorrow?  It is going to be hot temperature-wise for sure. I wasn't able to get over there to pre-fish. Hammer, my boater, got out there twice. We will spend time going after large and smalls. If the smalls are chewing, it will probably take huge bags to compete, just like the last time we were there in 2019 when Chuck Fields set the Snatcher All-Time Record with 23lbs of fish. Hopefully, Dwight and I will hold up in the heat, and fishing is good.  Rods I'm bringing: ...

SCIENTIFIC ANGLERS - Flyrods in the Bayou

I'm not sure who at Scientific Anglers unearthed this short film (along with a few others that I'll share in the coming days) but these are kinda campy and wonderful at the same time.  The narration makes me chuckle. Let's start with 'Flyrods in the Bayou' which is all about warmwater with glass rods, old Air Cel and Wet Cel fly lines on clicker reels, and "popping bugs".  After this look at the past, jump over to the Scientific Anglers website for a look at what the future ...

2021 May Recap

 And just like that, Memorial Day is over, as is the month of May in 2021. The month started with so much promise due to the cold month of April. I thought the fishing was just going to bust wide open, but it really never did. Then I started having lower back issues, and when I finally got to the Chiropractor, which I put off when the parents were down in Florida, and the second adjustment didn't make things any better, I got concerned. I really don't want a replay of 2012 when lower back issu...

I Love the Driftless

There's just something about this region of southwest Wisconsin that amazes upon each and every pilgrimage. The rolling green hills, the cold spring creeks, the voracious trout; it's wonderfully unique and intoxicating.  Now I don't consider myself a very good trout angler. Once upon a time I was on the path to perhaps becoming one, but ever since moving to Florida, I just don't get to fish for trout frequently enough to really advance my skills.That said, upon entering the Driftless, I always...

An Unexpected Gift

Hardly a day goes by that I don't find an email or direct message on one of the T.F.M. social media pages with questions about fiberglass fly rods, fly lines, gear, or destinations.  I have a good time hashing through these conversations and a few months ago traded messages with a fellow who had a few questions which we had a good time working through.     Sometime later a package arrived in my mailbox with a small framed piece of artwork and a thank you note.  This was completely unexpected a...

'Sea snot' is clogging up Turkey's coasts, suffocating marine life, and devastating fisheries

A drone photo shows sea snot near the Maltepe, Kadikoy, and Adalar districts of Istanbul, Turkey on May 2, 2021. Lokman Akkaya/Anadolu Agency via Getty Images A goopy substance called sea snot has been clogging Turkish coasts in the Sea of Marmara for months. The mucus has been filling fishing nets, suffocating coral, and killing marine life. Climate change and fertilizer runoff may be fueling the algae boom that's behind the sea snot.
