Not all dams are created equal. Visit the link below to read “The Good Dam” by Greg Fitz of Trout Unlimited and learn about the good work being done by beavers—and the people who love them—to create wildfire resilient watersheds that support and protect healthy fish populations.

www.theflyfishjournal.com/exclusive/the-good-dam/

“Especially in western streams,” Greg Fitz writes, “the differences between a healthy watershed full of beaver activity and the ones where beavers are missing, or intentionally kept away, can be stark.” Originally published in Volume Fifteen, Issue Two of The Flyfish Journal.

On a fair-weather day, Sam Scott Blue Ridge Musky and Dave Fason put their hands on a Virginian musky after a boat side jump. Even with shaky hands from the experience, they kept calm and were able to make some great frames.

These photos accompanied Michael Garrigan's words in Parking Lot Muskies, published in Volume Fifteen, Issue One.

"My son Gus, tells me most mornings when he wakes up that he had dreams about rainbow trout—he calls them 'pictures in his head.' He can't go near a body of water on New Zealand's South Island without picking up the nearest stick to catch imaginary trout. It's hard to keep his feet dry. Gus is two-and-a-half years old and our fishing adventures have been some of my favorite so far. I just hope they continue until I'm an old fella."

“Using round numbers for easy math gives me a fly box with two sides of 10 rows at 20 flies per row; looking into my pack, I count four boxes. So there’s 1,600 flies, and that’s just what’s on me.” Jesse L. Robbins piece Too Many, from Volume Fourteen, Issue Three is up at the link below.
