A trophy fish can be hooked at any moment and capturing a picture of a trophy can provide years of memories, not to mention bragging rights.In today’s world buying a small digital camera is no pr…

Evening Secret Blog – Fishing Joins the Ultralight Revolution — How Fishing Caught Up with Hiking

leave a comment »

The image of a boy with his cane pole and a can of worms heading down a dirt path toward the “old fishing hole” has been burned into our minds by the likes of Norman Rockwell. That image, of the most basic of fishing tools, may warm our hearts but it is as far removed from the reality of fishing today as Neanderthal’s spear is from a modern rocket launcher.The keyword in modern fishing is specialization; the boy with the cane pole could catch all the sunfish and catfish he wanted, but his chan…



Frustrating as it is, carp fishing is awesome. Carp are really good at sucking in and blowing out suspicious baits. It?s such an excitement to see the whole action in a fraction of a second as you hang on for dear life while the reel is trembling with a loud noise. Carp happily devour on the surface as long as you keep the pellets, biscuits, chic peas, bread, and re-hydrated corn coming in, and these are inexpensive baits as well. Just attach them to the hooks, most preferably the bread. Have t…

Fly Fishing Equipment

Fly rods
Fly fishing rods come in different sizes and with varying degrees of flexibility. It is very important that the fly fishing line used on a rod is correctly matched to the rod. If the line is too thick and heavy for a lighter rod, the casting action will be negatively affected or worse yet the rod could suffer permanent damage due to the stress. Rods are marked in sizes, from the lightest #0 or #1 to the stronger and much heavier #16 which is used predominantly …
