Perfect Combo: Bill Miller's Crayfish & Bright Butt Leaders


By: Joel Anderson

 

Cedar waxwings were working diligently over the river tonight, with the object of their attention being caddis flies that were trying desperately to make to the safety of nearby trees after hatching off the water. Because of the golden bird’s incredible aerial prowess, not a single insect made it to refuge. Often two birds would race for the same bug. While it was fascinating to watch, I was there to fish.

Making a Statement or Just Rubbing It In?


By: Joel Anderson

Coming to a Salmon Lake Near You


By: Joel Anderson 

Today’s rain has me thinking “lake inlet fishing for landlocked salmon”. I’ve been chasing fall landlocked salmon for thirty years, sometimes successfully, sometimes not so much. Over that time, I have learned a trick or two and, since it’s that time of year again, I thought I would attempt to pass along one particular trick that has proven time and time again to be very successful and well worth the effort.
