Newb Fly Tying 2

Written by
The addiction to fly tying has taken hold.  I am very lucky and blessed to have some great friends teach me and provide some products.  After chatting with a co-worker I tried to tie some more flies using less and shorter hair.  They turned out ok, but still didn’t look that good.  I shared these with my co-worker and he…
You heard it here first on YakAngler Minnesota residents drill over 20,000 holes in Gull Lake to try and beat the current world record for largest pasta strainer. The previous record was held by neighboring Wisconsin’s who drilled over 15,000 holes on Butternut Lake. Spoof blog post and all this is a pretty cool drone video from what locals call…
Let’s face it with the recent explosion of the kayak fishing industry in recent years; we all know that sooner or later we are going to see large corporate sponsors in our community of small businesses and DIY kayak anglers that represent the current industry.

Newbie Fly Guy

Written by
It’s official.  I am now a fly fishing addict.  It all started in 2013 at the Columbus day Boondoggle at Perdido Key, Fl. when I took a fly casting class from Joe Mahler.  That night I started looking up fly fishing gear and bought two different rods and reels from my good friend StandingYak.  He helped set me up with…

Written by

Fixing a Backlash

Written by
You set your reel correctly for the bait your using, but the reel backlashed anyway. It can happen, a gust of wind, not seeing when the bait hits the water, or other causes can create a backlash and a mess. When this happens most people start trying to pick the backlash apart. This can take care of smaller backlashes, but…

Preventing a Backlash

Written by
I like baitcasting reels. They're lighter and more compact than spinning reels. Also, most of the time they give us better casting control. You would think that all anglers would prefer baitcasters over spinning reels. However, they have a big problem that has many anglers shying away from them. Of course I'm talking about the backlash.

Kayak Demo Days

Written by
This past weekend (14 September) I attended the Austin Canoe and Kayak (ACK) fall demo days at the Quarries Park in Austin, TX. This was my first ever demo event from any kayak dealer and I was not disappointed! Even though I was not in the market for a new boat, I was extremely interested to see and try-out the…
