WE WATCH WEATHER Fish Need Water so do folks DAILY SURFACE MAP -------    .. Way up here in our little corner of the 'Dakota Splinter,' (also known as 'Lost Dakota,') we enjoy watching the weather... Some enjoy it more than others but, it's always a guaranteed topic of conversation... The conversations usually include the topic of snow and rain and recently; "We need some.".. We are, right here, still in a drought. Have been for about 9 years. It has to do with ...

Nattie Up North An Introduction

I found out about Nattie through her being hired by Major League Fishing to work on their Bass Pro Tour Broadcast Team. So naturally, I checked out some of her YouTube videos and came to discover she is a Minnesocold Girl.  I think Major League made a really good hire.  Her enthusiasm for fishing is infectious, has the gift of gab, and she had a million dollar smile.  It will be interesting to see how they use her.  I hope it works out.She did start a blog in 2017, but it looks like she has give...

The Southern Belize Fly Tying Initiative - Placencia Session

(If you missed the first post in this series, please circle back and start with the Hopkins Session before continuing on.) The next morning we were up early, ate breakfast (yes, a couple more fry jacks), packed up all our gear and the three of us jumped into the shuttle from Hopkins to Placencia.  Our next stop would be at the Belize Ocean Club as they would be host to the next session of the Southern Belize Fly Tying Initiative.  The drive to get there was beautiful as we passed fruit fields an...

Abel + Spyderco Native® 5

When I started my career in law enforcement over 20 years ago, one of the first purchases I was told to make was to buy a good knife which led me to Spyderco and one has been in my pocket ever since.  The blade is unbelievably sharp and the one time I had to use the lifetime warranty, a brand new knife was sent to me with no questions asked.  I'll never not have one in my pocket.  I'm a fan for life.The recent collaboration with the Abel + Spyderco Native ® 5 is neat in that here's two exceptio...

2018 Fishing Goals Achieved (And Not)

Goals achieved in bold green Goals not achieved in red Partly achieved in purple Commentary in blue Fishing Buddies: Once again in 2018 I did poorly in reaching my fishing buddies goals. However, I did spend more time fishing with my younger brothers and had multiple pre-fishing trips with fellow Snatchers and Pete came up a few different times, so I wasn't fishing by myself all the time.   1. Fish with Dad multiple times.( Due to dad's sore shoulders he wasn't up for fishing this year.) ...

The New Way Forward: Wetlands

It's crazy all the information that's out on the internet. What to rice fields & salmon have in common? I'm not talking about sushi either. I absolutely love the videos that California Trout posts to Vimeo. The New Way Forward: Wetlands, an almost nine-minute short from River Garden Films is no exception, and is definitely worth the watch if you're into the inner-workings of ecosystems.Without giving away the whole narrative, when California changed the way rice farmers had to turn over fields ...

DESTINATION FLIES - Doyle's Floating Crab

I constantly have my eyes open for new flies to tuck into my carp, smallmouth, redfish, permit and anything else fly boxes that look "munchy" and when Kevin Doyle of Destination Flies posted a few images of his Doyle's Floating Crab on Instagram, I asked if he would mind putting together a step by step to show others how he ties this fly.  Grab your vise, tying materials and get to work.

JENSEN MADE - Hadley's Custom Cigar Box Ukulele

Thirteen years ago when our daughter Hadley was born, I wanted to celebrate her birth and purchased a box of Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story to hand out cigars to friends.  It didn't take too long before the twenty-five cigars were gone and the box was filled with mementos of Hadley's birth.  This little cigar box was placed in my wife's hope chest where it likely would have stayed if it had not been for connecting with Kristopher Jensen about a year ago.  I was selling a few fiberglass fly ...

Pondering Valley Creek

Has it really been since 2017? I think so...When I lived in Pennsylvania, I used to fish Valley Creek in Valley Forge National Historical Park virtually every weekend. Those were probably the best days of my fly fishing, living so close to that water was something special. It's where I pretty much learned to fly fish; first streamers, then nymphs and dries, figured out line management, clicker reels, roll casts, I even caught my first fish on a tenkara rod there. So many good memories.It's not ...
