Berdie Judd (Women’s Fly Fishing Icon bounced as Alliance Chair) UPDATE

Bertie 'Bud' Judd and Friends

Bertie 'Bud' Judd and Friends

“Mildred Sussman of the Women’s Alliance for Nature’s Renewal answered enquiries today about the departure of Bertie Judd from the group’s helm. Sussman said it was a mutual decision for Judd to relinquish her role as Chair of the group. This stemed from a recent debacle in St. Charles while Judd was on holiday with friends. Several escapades were documented when authorities were summoned to the Tradewinds Lounge, where Judd was holding forth on the worthiness, or lack there of, of men. Authorities were advised that several women were partially clothed. The incident later resulted in knowledge that Judd had used Alliance monies to finance travel and accommodations in St. Charles. The trip was planned under the auspices of a fly fishing piece to highlight the Alliance. It appears Judd was more inclined to celebrate the night life than explore the local waters. Upon her return to Newbury, Judd met with members of the Alliance and an agreement was reached for Judd to step aside as Chair.” 

“It may be recalled that Judd was the first woman to compete in what had been a male dominated event, the prestigious Siness Quarry Fly Fishing Championships. Judd came from obscurity to garner runner up status and to emerge into the public’s view. Since then, Bertie Judd has been instrumental in promoting women’s fly fishing and tying as well as the procurement of habitat through the Alliance’s funding.”

“When reached for comment by the Newbury Messenger, Bertie Judd said she would continue to lead women into the outdoors, and in particular, show women the ‘affirming power of tossing the fly and coaxing the meet’.”      http://www.newburynh.org/public_documents/index

——————————–

It is apparent that the women emerging as future role models for fly fishing promotion are tame in comparison to Bertie “Bud” Judd and her gal pals in St. Charles. Bertie, Bertie I need to find out more about you.  

Update 3/7/09:

“Mr. Switters, I feel compelled to write, not to explain away a momentary event of no consequence, but rather to remark upon how important to not take one’s eyes off the goal…promoting women to take risks in a male dominated endeavor. My life’s ambition has been to succeed in creating an inviting space in the wild for women to feel comfortable while learning the skills of fly fishing. I have not, as you may suggest, been asked to leave the ‘Alliance’ but rather to move in a new direction to enhance our projects…..”  

With kind regards….Berdie Judd

Fly Fishing in Japan (Chasing the Amago, Yamame & the Ayu )

Amago

Amago

 

 

Freestone streams dominate fly fishing like much of the Western US  and elsewhere in the world. Headwaters and small gear. The flies are tied (Kebari, Ke ‘feather’ bari ‘hook’) much like anywhere else and bait fish patterns are used for territorial species. The streams appear to be beautiful freestone streams with inviting pocket water.

SeaducerX (Luciano Chavez’s Texas Treat for Bass)

SeaducerX~Luciano Chavez
SeaducerX~Luciano Chavez

The resulting fly is ample in size to attract a bass but it is also very light and I expect that I will be able to cast it on my 5wt with no problems. We’ll have to see how it fishes though. I am kind of eager to go back to the lake this weekend and try some of these experiments. I’ll see what other experimental flies I can come up with before then.

EDIT: It has come to my attention that this fly pattern is essentially a cross between a Whistler and a Seaducer fly.

Fly Fishing & Fly Tying Podcasts (Tie and Listen)

Lake Bait~G. Muncy

Lake Bait~G. Muncy

“The original podcast for fly fish anglers. Mike Overton and Wylie Thomas interview everyone from fly fishing royalty like Emmet Heath and Mike Lawson to Fly Fishing experts like Norm Albiston to some of your local fly shops.

What is the best way to listen to the podcast? Since you’re probably still at the office just download the episodes into iTunes or any MP3 player. Put on the head phones and pretend to be working. Other wise you might prefer listening to the shows while tying your favorite fly patterns. Or better yet while you’re driving to your next fishing destination.

How can I automaticaly get new episodes into my MP3 player? If you use iTunes you can simply drag and drop the iTunes logo on to iTunes podcast directory and youre done. Dowload iTunes here. Other services such as Odeo or iPodder, help manage your podcast subscriptions. If you want to make your podcasts portable, you will need to transfer them from your computer to a portable media device.”

Stillwater Fly Fishing (Larry Tamiyasu Pays His Dues…and not just in fairweather)

Rainbow (OrchysBrusis)~Larry Tamiyasu

Rainbow (Oncorynchus Bruisus)~Larry Tamiyasu

larry-early

I have remarked before that Larry Tamiyasu is a very dedicated stillwater fly fisher from Oregon. He started the season in the snow from one lake to another and finished (well who knows…if it isn’t frozen over, he may still be there) the season in the snow. This beautiful rainbow fell to a black leech in the Spring on a very chilly day. This fish and others went back to the depths, unharmed. And, no, it was not a pay lake. You will note the top of Larry’s head was cut off. The photographer took the liberty of cropping the shot to eliminate the bizarre stocking cap that Larry is often seen wearing. I told Larry that, today, pink is not an uncommon color for a man, but perhaps a more somber color on stillwaters is in order. Actually, I have no idea why it was cropped that way, a misplaced tree, inappropriate logo on a trucker’s hat or……………….? No matter…the fish captures your gaze, doesn’t it?

Father & Sons (The Good Loadstone~Fly fishing)

Not to be sentimental, but I am a fortunate man in having three sons who genuinely love to fish. They were raised fishing with spin gear, level winds and fly rods. All three have always been adept at flyfishing in their pre-teens. And, as happened to me and others, one can fall away from the past time as life’s options over run available time. It has been nice to watch all three men come back to their roots to regain something that the outdoors and fishing provides them. Much like riding a bicycle, it does not take long to regain the movements and carry on as if years have not passed by. But, of course they have, and for me it makes it all the sweeter to see. If I were considerably older, it would be bittersweet. I am blessed that time may allow me more opportunities to enjoy all my sons as they rediscover harmony, balance and dreams realized, on their terms.

So, I am looking forward to many more trips with all my sons in order to enjoy the relationships, watch their successes and to confirm what I have long held: there is no better therapy, tonic, elixir or altar than the outdoors and moving waters. Throw in a fly rod and magic happens.

Marc Williamson (Steady Influence to Fly Fishing, Education and Faith)

Marc Williamson & Bubba Trout

Marc Williamson & Bubba Trout

I have been acquainted with Marc Williamson for about tens years, I would guess. I met Marc through fly tying circles, while escorting my then young son, Tony, as he tied at expos in his pre-teen years. Marc was also tying and I would visit with him as he tied clean, functional and always unique trout patterns.

It has always struck me that Marc is invited to many of the shows. I believe that has been as much for his demeanor as his skills. It is evident that Marc is a kind man. I have come, over time, to know that Marc is involved in a faith based endeavor each year, at which fly fishers meet at a retreat to fly fish, learn about fly fishing and to openly discuss their faith and life’s issues. This is part of Marc’s personality…simply put he walks the talk…yet the talk is purposely restrained. He is a decent man. His strength of character and composure is evident. Whether one is outgoing or restrained in one’s religious beliefs or carry any at all, to know Marc is to know he carries strength in his person and relationships with nary an utterance of scripture or witnessing. Marc has dedicated his life to educating our youth. He is a man, who has served his community and his family. He is a pleasure to know.      

With that said, I will start an early promotion for Marc re a yearly retreat in Oregon. It is called the Christian Fly Fishing Roundup and is held at Pine Hollow Reservoir. If you want to know more check out the link below. Also, I bet Marc will be tying at the NW Flytying Rendezvous (1st. Saturday of Novermber at Mt. Hood Community College ..look for signs and wind your way through to find it…it is worth it) so you could visit with him then. I know I will be.

And, I might add that Marc is an excellent fisherman.
