In this classic 16mm film, the legendary angler Lee Wulff chronicles his early days of flying and fishing in Newfoundland and Labrador. In fact, these videos are from the government archives as the province paid Lee to promote the fishing. This was just after World War II and his early days of using a float plane. Crazy that he was hooking and landing such massive trout and salmon on a small 7-foot bamboo rod! What is amazing is that fishing is still great in much of Newfoundland and Labrador, just like then!

A client recently requested a batch of squid flies for hunting Coho off the west coast. I didn’t have a ton of experience with calamari flies, so I hit the internets to find a few patterns that might work well for him. I found this beefy treat on Global Fly Fisher and tied up a couple dozen for the client. A couple weeks later I got a pile of silver slab photos and an angler with a huge grin. They worked like a charm. If you plan to head west to fish for anadromous species, bring a few squid to chuck. I wonder how pike or bull trout would react to something like that?
Cassard by A Calzolari illustrated by S Briston is now up for auction. I had the opportunity to interview Sarah Briston a few years back about her artwork. You can see the interview here. I have a few of her pieces in my personal collection, but would love to have something as beautiful as this added. This auction is for the Alberto Calzolari Cassard fly and the wonderful artwork. I’m looking forward to seeing more offering like this pair from Sarah in the future as each discipline complements the other so nicely.
