Just in Time for Opener--How to Fillet Fish

Here's another great video on How To Fillet Fish by Fillet Fish.

I'm still very fond of Russel Mckay's Walleye filet method but this one is also great for those of you who do not want to cut through the ribs.

I've still got some Fishing Adventures open in July, August and September. And, I'll fillet your fish for you. Join me.

Ice Fishing At Its Best

Yes, I know March is behind us. And we are all looking forward to soft-water fishing. 

But this video by Wintertrekker inspires me even though I'll have to wait until next season. What a great way to celebrate late ice in Northern Ontario!

And what a great year it has been for late ice.

I still have some Fishing Adventures open for 2013

I Don't Know Why I Swallowed The Fly

I Don't Know Why I Swallowed The Fly: My Fly Fishing Rookie Season by Jessica Maxwell is one of my favorite fishing reads. Maxwell shares her introduction to fly fishing and the intimacy she finds through the sport. Funny, insightful and provocative.
