Steelhead & the big pull (winter wanderlust fuel)

In fishing, the pic is indeed worth the 1,000 words and worth such envy. The boys obviously enjoyed an adventure most of us won’t get to or know how to orchestrate the logistics of this B.C. adventure….so we savor pictures and if we have been close to this type of experience in some manner, we feel the temperature, the wetness, the cold, the greys and greens, the euphoria of a “I can’t believe this.” The blog world is coming alive with such imagery that the inspiration dwarfs the mags of old. Cool post at  http://thebigpull.wordpress.com/

Also, note the petition above the ‘big pull’ post re B.C. access to the historic steelhead rivers. Respond.

Fishing’s Universal Bond (Covasna Trout~Grayling Bums)

Romanian Squadron of Deceivers

Romanian Squadron of Deceivers

I always find it interesting to see the camaraderie of buddies fishing rivers, streams and stillwaters and notice the location is not the B.C., Oregon, Montana, Utah, Michigan, Arkansas or Quebec, but this time Romania. I believe from the pics-site this ‘fishing squad’ is from Covasna, Romania. Their town is in the SE region of Romania in Transylvania, nestled near the Carpathian Mountains. These trout/grayling bums show the same universal exuberance for fish, flies, gear and friendship. Their site is an interesting visit of pics; there are some beautiful browns. Where you can’t pic up the language, you get the idea.  They tease with only a few posts each month. I hope they accelerate their efforts to give us much more insight into their region, flies, techniques and experimental photography. http://flytying-zsolt.blogspot.com/

Tattoo’s & Fly Fishing (Stone Fly Nymph Crawling)

Don Polovich Stonefly Nymph

Don Polovich Stonefly Nymph (Salmon Fly Fetish)

 

Don Polovich has an obvious addiction for the California Stone, Salmon Fly, heck why not the Golden Stone or Skwala too. The robust crawler that drives nymph slingers and top water flingers to the far reaches of the West in May and June. Polovich was attending a Black Hills Flyfishers’ Tying event in September 2007. The pic was in the Rapid City Journal.

Don Polovich is a photo/journalist, who retired from the Journal after 36 years of service capturing events in South Dakota. His mind obviously wanders toward moving water and slinging and chucking.
