I love this.
This! We need to get the rest of the crew to step off!
I have cast some of Carey’s rods and they are functional works of art. Companies like CF Burkheimer keep the soul of fly fishing alive through their craft.
I have a Trouthunter #4 and don’t want to put it down, even if the fish are bigger. Busted a tip, they made me a new one, and put a tip top on the old one and said, “it’ll probably fish like a #6 with this tip”. Tried it as a #6 on the Madison last August and landed a monster with it.

Oh man, that is a HUGE boil from a cutthroat on a surface fly! A hole like that in the water means a very large fish…and we missed it! Lifting the fly like you normally would for a dry fly take often results in missed hook-ups. Strip set or bring the rod sideways and parallel to the water and you will find more consistency in staying connected.

On Monday environmental groups released images of a coal-ash plant in Kentucky allegedly dumping illegal waste into the Ohio river — and it’s not a pretty picture.
The Sierra Club and Earthjustice had set up a hidden camera to capture Louisville Gas & Electric discharging chemicals into the river. Under the utility plant’s current permit, it is only allowed to make “occasional” waste dumps. But according to a Sierra Club organizer, “If you look at the photos, it’s not an occasional discharge. It’s a steady stream coming out of the coal-ash containment pond … every day, all day, all night.”
The group took time-lapse photography of the purported dumping site every three seconds for a year. Coupled with satellite images from Google Earth, these pictures will serve as the basis of a lawsuit filed on behalf of Kentucky residents.
And no one will go to jail.
