On a whim, I picked up a relatively inexpensive starter fly fishing kit - consisting of a 5/6 weight pole and reel, tapered leader and orange backing line - and a few flies (I bought a few more that…Continue

I've noticed that fishing is often a hereditary sport. Most people I know learned from their fathers, uncles, friends, etc.  I myself never picked that up.  My father fished long before he died,…Continue

Thanks, I might be the unluckiest fisherman in Alaska so I do not have many to show off.  I only caught a couple other silvers that summer and they were already beginning to change color.

15 inch ~3lb Trout. Taken with a wet fly (wooly bugger) from a place I've forgotten. ;) Fun fight. Tasty fish. Broiled the filets with a tuscan garlic/rosemary/sage vinaigrette.

Best fish of the day, 10 inch Largemouth Bass, in a tiny pond. Too small to keep, but fun to catch. I'll try to get him again next year.

Had fun today. Took the boy with me to the river and fished for an hour or so in the morning, downriver from the junction between the canal and river. Lots of guys fishing at the junction itself, and i wanted a quieter spot. 

Only caught a few small bluegill (threw em back in), but it was fun. 

Went to the pond by us in the late afternoon to see what was going on there. All of us aiming for sunfish and bass came up empty (aside from minnows), but the guys going after catfish were having a great day. Might have to go back and give that a shot.

"What I learned from this thread is that people spell asafoetida "acifidity" -- that is, they don't just pronounce it that way. I'm no expert, but I think if you put asafoetida in a bag, you've got an acifidity bag.…"

"No, asafoetida is just the main ingredient in a small pouch worn around the neck, called acifidity bags by old timers. Google it, and you'll seem some interesting anecdotes about them."
