Community Fishing Nights

DSCN2972

Some of you may have noticed a subtle difference in our Family Fishing program this summer.  We have had a full list of events again this summer, actually starting to wind down now, but you may have noticed we have been calling them “Community Fishing Nights” instead of “Family Fishing Nights”.  It is a minor name change made because we did not want folks to think that they could not come out if they did not have family to come …

Swing and a Miss!

P4090035

The big college baseball tournament in Omaha just finished up.  Like Major League Baseball, there are a darned lot of strike-outs in the game nowadays. . . . Likewise, if you have spent any amount of time on the water, you have at least a story or three about “the one that got away”.  Probably got a bunch more stories about fish you missed on the hook set.  You know you do, and you will appreciate this video: Had a …

We’ve All Been There!

IMG_1157

I found this video on the interwebs recently.  I kind of like it! OK, I suppose that is a nice video to help you relax and get ready for you next fishing trip, maybe even this weekend, but I liked it so much because I relate to it!  “Hey, I resemble that remark”! Some of you watched a little of it, maybe half, and mumbled something disparaging about fly anglers.  BALONEY.  You have done the same thing, bass on topwater …

Learn to Fly Catch

FlycastingCrop

I will admit it.  Some of us who are really serious about our fishing can get a little too uptight sometimes.  At the risk of stereotyping certain anglers, well, let’s just say Hank Patterson puts things in perspective! Seriously, fly-catching can be the best way to fish at certain times, and who cares how well you cast?  You know what?  The fish don’t care a bit, especially bluegills! Get out there and practice your fly-catching, and have fun doing it! …

Make your own Tool-Holding Antler

Antler

ne day while attending graduate school in Montana, I wandered into the Slide Inn a fly shop on the banks of the Madison River. The shop’s owner, Kelly Galloup, had a reputation as a trout-crazed wild child, and his fly-tying abilities and patterns are known all over the world. The shop displayed an eclectic collection of fishing memorabilia – antique bamboo rods, replicas of enormous brown trout, and photos of legendary anglers from days gone by. There was a ton of …

Fly Fishing is a Joke

DSCN1953

If you read my blog post earlier this week, you know that I just got back from a week fishing with family in Montana.  I love going to different waters, experiencing and learning different things.  In Montana we fished a couple of the most well-known fly-fishing waters in the world, and it truly is a different world.  It reminded me of this video I found a couple of years ago. . . . Warning:  Before you take the ten minutes …

Name Dropping

IMG_1167

EDITOR’S NOTE:  This blog ain’t about Nebraska.  It IS about a lifestyle that includes family and fishing.  Even though this particular post is not Nebraska-centric, I suspect many of you will be interested in the adventures anyhow.  In fact, most of us have a list of waters in-state and out-of-state that we love to fish, let me drop the names of a few of them here. . . . My immediate family and I spent a week in Montana recently. …

Siouxland Fly Fishing Club

994

Heading north again to meet with my friends in the Siouxland Fly Fishing Club.  They meet every month at the Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center on the edge of Sioux City.  If I remember right, they get together to do a little fly-tying at 9:00 a.m., meeting starts at 10:00, and I will start rambling some time shortly after that.  This time I have a program on the role of fish stocking in fisheries management to share with them. Once again …
