What’s on Your Christmas List?


It’s that time of year again. Time for everyone to start thinking about what kind of gifts we’re giving to loved ones, and equally important — what kind of gear we’re dreaming of receiving!

I know different anglers will be looking at different types of gear, but for some fresh ideas be sure to get over to YakAngler.com to check out the Christmas Wish List 2012 ezine!

When Fish Attack


I love to catch trout. I’ve only been fly fishing for three years, but trout quickly earned the top spot on my list when it comes to my most enjoyable catches.

Second only to trout, is the small mouth bass (especially on the fly). In many ways trout and smallies give similar fights, both fish being strong and aggressive. Both can be downright stubborn when it comes to coaxing them towards you, you have to wear them down enough to drag them in your direction.

A friend of mine posted this video in a YakAngler.com forum that I frequent. In the video, a diver happens upon some bedding bass and the reaction is pretty astounding. After seeing this I realize how much of a fighter the small mouth is, and why I owe no apologies for their being such a close second on my freshwater fishing list.

AJ McWhorter showing one of his larger catches of the evening

On Wednesday, August 15th there was a good turnout for the Canoe KY
ECKFS. With weather pretty much as expected for the middle of August and the water levels strong, the fishing turned out just as strong for this evening’s tournament.

There were a couple of ties, both for second and fifth place, really highlighting how tough the competitors are. Who would have expected the weekly totals to be so close?

The results are:

Angler Total Points earned
1st TJ Strong 33.25″ 5 pts.
2nd AJ McWhorter 27.75” 4 pts.
2nd Allen Faith 27.75” 3 pts.
