Mercury & Dragonflies

Understanding how mercury gets into our fish.

It's always interesting for me, being an aquatic biologist and angler, to look down into the water and see the diversity of life on the bottom of a beautiful stream. It wasn't until recently during my time researching invertebrates, that I now go out to a stream while fishing and wonder how much mercury, a neurotoxin, is in the body of the small critter my fly is trying to resemble.

Treasures

A fly fishing manufacturer designer shares her story.

I've been developing designs for Sage, Redington and RIO for about 4 years now. It's been a true pleasure to work in an industry that is so clearly passionate about the sport of fly fishing.

The Smallest Decision

A serendipitous journey into fly fishing.

I sat anxiously until I heard the unmistakable beep of the seat belt sign clicking off. Immediately, I jumped up and snagged my rod case out of the overhead bin. I clutched the case and breathed a sigh of relief, (my eternal fear is that I will forget my fly rod on an airplane). I walked off the plane, breezed through customs, grabbed my white duffel bag, (breathed another sigh of relief knowing my luggage made it) and then walked outside. I was greeted by the intense sunlight, hair-frizzing humidity, and the throng of stressed out ‘gringos’ synonymous with Cancun, Mexico.

My Baem'bu

Creation of my first bamboo rod.

For over a decade, I observed as my husband crafted the bamboo fly rods I so much love to fish. This winter I embarked on a pursuit to craft my own bamboo fly rod. Oh my goodness! I had no idea how much fun it would be and how much intricacy there was to building a bamboo fly rod. Beginning on this page and for the next few pages you will be taken on a photo essay of my bamboo rod building pursuit. And, of course, my first fishing pursuit with my new rod in hand. I can only hope that my words and pictures give you a sampling of how intriguing and rewarding this pursuit was for me personally.

Outside The Box

Milkweed?

Thinking outside the box can come naturally to anyone. You have to allow yourself to come up with many ridiculous notions and let the scintillating schemes come forward. The trick is to recognize the ridiculous from the possible.

Curiosity

Exploring Fly Fishing.

These days, i have to remind myself that I'm still new to fly fishing. From an early age, I was fortunate to be exposed to skiing, hiking and backpacking. I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, so I'm no stranger to stunning mountains, water and fresh air. For years, I had a peripheral awareness of fly fishing and a slight curiosity about the sport - but it wasn't until this year that I finally decided to take my curiosity a step further.

A Bucket List Must

Fishing the Sawtooths.

Like all anglers, I have my bucket list of places to fish. What describes your bucket list? Is it a certain size of fish? Is it a species? Is it a destination? For me, the bucket list focuses more on destination and type of fish than the size of fish. I am always interested in catching a new species in new waters.

Fly Fishing At 13,000 Feet

Exploring Ecuador with a Fly Rod.

When I was preparing this article and thinking about my first fly fishing experience, I was inspired by a quote by Mahatma Gandhi. "A country's society can be judged by the way its animals are treated."

The Eagle's Nest

It's about the experience.

It was late March and my husband, no longer able to resist the call of fishing, had taken us to the Poconos. Like the rest of the residents of the northeast, we felt the call of spring. We were all tired of the gray days, the snow and the cold. We were seriously wishing for sunshine and warmth and trout.
