Jon Hazlett at the Ashland Fly Shop explains how important it is to 'Look, Listen and Feel' while spey casting.
A compilation of video footage captured from the University of Aberdeen’s Hadal-Lander in the Mariana Trench from 5000m to 10,545 m deep. The large fish inhabit the shallower depth (5000 to 6500m) are rat-tails, cusk eels and eel pouts. At the mid depths (6500 to 8000m) are the supergiant amphipods and the small pink snailfish.
The fragile snailfish at 8145m is now the deepest living fish.
Eddie Bauer came up with the idea for his lightweight down insulated jacket after almost freezing to death steelhead fishing on the Olympic Peninsula.

An important call to action from TU.
The Oregon Board of Forestry (BOF) will soon decide whether to increase Oregon’s riparian buffers. These buffers supply cool water in the heat of summer, water necessary for steelhead, trout, salmon and other organisms important to Oregon rivers and streams.
Currently, Oregon requires only a 20 foot buffer -- far smaller than neighboring states, and according to the science, woefully inadequate as a means of providing the necessary cool water on which these species depend.
