Film Tour

DSCN3009

I like to spread the word on these film tour events, especially when there is a viewing in Nebraska.  This time it is for a virtual screening of the International Fly Fishing Film Festival.  Watch the trailer: Purchase “tickets”, International Fly Fishing Film Festival, Virtual Screening USA 2022. If you have never watched one of these events, well, they are just plain fun.  The fish and fishing in the films always get me fired up.  I know we are looking …

First Time Fly Fisher

DSCN6215

Let me have a little fun with my fellow fly-fishers today: I have heard enough negativity for one week, so before you start sending me more hate mail. . . LIGHTEN UP! My philosophy has always been to “use the right tool for the job”.  There are some fishing situations when a fly rod is absolutely the best tool!  In that case, HAND ME THE FLY ROD!!!! But, they really are just bobbers. Ha. Have a great weekend, GO FISH, …

I just caught wind of this last week.  Of course as with everything this crazy year, you gotta go virtual this year.  So, check it out, International Fly Fishing Film Festival, Virtual Screening: Lincoln, NE If you need some convincing, go here and watch some trailers. I love the films, they will make you laugh, make you cringe (when a fish is lost), maybe even shed a tear.  If nothing else, they are great “pump up” videos! I wish I …

Talkin’ Bass

IMG_1671 (2)

With all the cornonavirus “stuff”, I have not been able to spend any time meeting with any of Nebraska’s angler groups.  I do not get around to every meeting for every group, but usually drop in on at least a few.  However, this spring the Cornhusker Fly Fishers have done a couple of FaceBook Live meetings, and I was able to drop in on them. Last week the topic of discussion was bass.  Yes, specifically that would have been bass …

Fly Fishing Guide

IMG_1167

Haven’t posted anything from Hank Patterson for a while.  This is a good one, and I believe, a little teaser of more to come. Of course you know, what makes things like that humorous is that there is at least some truth to it!  If you know a fishing guide or two, especially a fly-fishing guide, I will bet at least some parts of that video reminded you of them!  Yes, Seth, I am thinking of you!  Man, do I …

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 …
