Bass flies to turn it on.
So you’ve decided to target largemouth bass.by ~ Megan Berns
Raising a daughter is big business
When Josh and I found out we were having a little girl, we both cried tears of joy. Josh won't admit that, but I'm telling his secret. I cook his meals and am the mother of his children. He can't get too mad right? Besides the "She's never dating," "She's never leaving the house" spiel, he said three things to me that day that melted my heart. Through the tears he told me "I really want her to be proud to have me as her father." "I'm going to work really hard to be the husband to you that she needs me to be. I want to show her how a man is supposed to treat her," and "I'm taking her hunting and fishing with me as soon as she's old enough." After all, he's raising a young lady that will one day become a wife and a mother if she so chooses. It's a huge responsibility!by ~ Lisa Williams
Behind every woman angler is a support system of other women anglers.
Fly fishing has exposed me to numerous adventures and opportunities to learn over the past couple of years. The sport naturally provides experiences that ultimately develop into life lessons and values we inherit. Out of everything I have learned, something significant stands out from the rest. Behind every strong female angler is another strong female angler.by ~ Anne Susemihl
It's the ecosystem.
I have water in my veins, a common thread, starting from when I was a young girl growing up on the shores of Wild Fowl Bay, off of Lake Huron's thumb of Michigan. It was a great place to explore woodlands, wetlands, fishing, sailing and swimming.by ~ Jan Papa
A kayak made specifically with the fly angler in mind ... YES!
Last year at ICAST I was introduced to the new “fly fishing kayak,” appropriately called the MAYFLY. Now, let me just be completely honest here. I do not kayak. I’ve been in a kayak maybe twice in my life, and we’re not talking a KAYAK…we’re talking those watercrafts that call themselves kayaks that you can purchase at your local Walmart and come with a paddle.
Public lands are an important piece of American life. Keeping public lands public isn't a Republican or Democrat party issue -- it's an American issue.
As Americans, we consider ourselves a cultured people and rightfully place high value on the arts. The arts allow us to speak a common language regardless of social, economical or racial barriers. Nowhere is this more evident than in the great city of Nashville. As the Editor-in-Chief of an international fly fishing magazine and an avid angler, I view our national monuments, parks and public lands as a form of art. Like a beautiful painting, the vast open spaces of the Land Between the Lakes is a sight to behold. The morning songbirds there perform with such splendor that even Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik could be considered inadequate. This 178,000 acres of public land, which sees over 1.6 million visitors, and brings almost $5 million in revenue to this rural area is open for all to enjoy.
Permit fishing, farm-to-table lodge, world class guide service and beautiful coral reefs, what could be better?
Last November I had the opportunity to head to Punta Gorda, Belize for an Orvis photoshoot. It took me all of a millisecond to say yes; for two reasons. One, what Orvis is doing for women in fly fishing is so far above and beyond that I was happy to put my stamp of approval on association with them and two, it’s Belize. Punta Gorda, Belize is known for its permit flats and ever since I can remember it’s been on my must-do list.
Wrinkles, sun spots and the big C ... protecting yourself never looked so good.
My mom always said “brown fat looks better than white fat.” I lived by that mantra for years. When I was a teenager in the 80’s, putting iodine and baby oil on your skin and then baking in the sun was the “in” thing. I even blistered my whole face one year in Florida on spring break and call that “hillbilly dermabrasion.” While I say this in jest, the effects of the sun are beginning to take their toll. The older I get, the more important it is to me to protect my skin from the elements. Wrinkles and blotchy skin, coupled with a couple of friends who have had to undergo surgery for skin cancer have changed my idea about sunscreens and baby oil.
