Southern Musky Fever Relief

A couple of years ago, there was an undercurrent of musky fever, and then musky fever on the fly climbed to an all-time high. We read articles while tuning into the almost constant internet chatter. Everyone was talking about chasing musky for many days before even seeing one. We watched videos of anglers catching long, toothy fish, hoisting them over their heads in victory, showing shotgun poses along with new camera angles to help bring musky fever to its highest possible temperature. Musky was the fish of 1,000 or 10,000 casts—I really cannot remember.Apr 4th, 2013

Other species include: cusk, horned pout, (bullheads) and landlocked salmon.Mar 25th, 2013

Freshwater Fishing Gifts for the Holidays

Last year we talked about a fishing book as a possibility or two for a fishing friend for Christmas or Hanukah. Those ideas are still great, but there are other things that you can also consider, whether the gift is for a fishing buddy, a friend or a family member. Books are still good options, either of the practical type to learn more about fishing or of the coffee table variety as a reminder of past fishing trips or a possible look at future adventures.Dec 4th, 2012
