Setting Up a Fly Fishing Reel : Prepping a Wrapped Loop for Fly Fishing

The wrapped loop is a little more complicated Here's what we're going to end up with, obviously this is just the end of the fly line that I've cut off, but you can see here, these are our thread wraps

And we need a couple of things to get that done One is a sharp knife, razor blade, something like that because we're going to actually shave the end of the fly line down so that it's got a taper so that when we fold it over, there's not a bump there where it meets the fly line The other thing that makes it easy, not absolutely necessary, is a thread and a bobbin This would be a bobbin that you would use for fly tying This just makes it a little bit more easier to deal with the thread

You don't have to hold the spool in your hand while you're spinning it, the bobbin holds it So that's basically all you need though, and maybe a, some glue or something to finish that off, to kind of protect the thread wraps You can use glue, or you could use like a clear fingernail polish or something like that So that's the prep for the wrap loop This makes a really strong loop, I mean this loop is actually stronger than the fly line itself

Like if I went to break this loop, the line would break back here before the loop would pull out of the thread, so it's a really strong way to make a connection

MN Traditions – BASS College Fishing

(upbeat guitar music) (energetic drumming) (rock music) – We're here for our Carhartt Bassmaster College Series National Championship, 61 institutions from all over the country, 89 two-person teams and 180 anglers competing for this national championship Three day event here on the Bemidji chain of lakes, Lake Bemidji and then they can go into Stump Lake, Irving Lake, Lake Marquette and Carr, and the Mississippi River that connects all of those different lakes, so that's what's happening

It's a three day event, the full field fishes the first two days, and then we cut it down to the top 12 after day number 2, and then those top 12 will battle it out for the National Championship on that final day – Lake Bemidji is really at the heart of what Bemidji State's all about This is our DNA, we're one of the few lakeside campuses in the country actually, so we try to leverage our waterways whenever possible So they have been wanting to hold an event like this at one of the northern universities BSU jumped right on it as a great opportunity for the school and the community in general to host an event like this

– It's been huge, it's, you know, gave a lot of publicity to the team and the school, being able to fish the college series, it's a lot of fun, you get to travel all over the country, learn new techniques, fish in different water and everything, it'll definitely be my highlight of my college career – We fish from Minnesota down to Alabama, we fish Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Kansas, we fish a little bit of everywhere It's nice because you get to experience and travel, see different bodies of water, you get ledge fish, fish deep, you can come up here and fish in the grass, you can do all kinds of different things, it just makes you a lot better as an angler, being able to experience all these different lakes – We fish all over the world, so we get all different kinds of stuff thrown at us, clear water, fishing deep, shallow, wood, so this is all new to us up here, I don't think any of us have fished up north, and it's completely different, so we had to learn it pretty quick, with the days we had to practice – It's the mighty Mississippi behind me, it's a whole lot different than Tennessee River, its– the water's definitely a little clearer, and got a ton of them pike and musky out there with the biggest thing between here and home, and that's, man you can't keep them pike and stuff off your bait

I'd love to come up here and just fish for the pike I'd definitely love to have some of those at home – One of the things we learn, especially from traveling all over the country, is when you go into different states, they have inspection points when you cross into those state lines, so I mean that clean, drain, dry, that's the main three things you need to do In your livewells, in your battery compartments is what I always tell our guys, places where water can gather in your boats, but one of the things we did here is we had a full decontamination process that happened before these boats even put in right here on Lake Bemidji and this whole chain of lakes that we're fishing – That was one of the first items that we had to address, and it was the first thing we wanted to address, so that included full decontamination stations for all of the boats coming in to the area, that's the very first thing they did as they rolled into town

– One thing that I think is really cool that Minnesota prides itself in is having people at each ramp, DNR checking boats, I mean that's the only way to prevent it, 'cause once they get into a lake they really do change it Water clarity, the whole ecosystem – So what we just did, we took the boat out of the water, you pull the plug, you empty your livewells to get all the crap out of there, and you lower your motor to get all the water out of your prop and everything It's a really simple process, and it's something that really needs to be done so we don't spread these invasive species, 'cause some of 'em can really do a lot of harm, and there's stuff that gets in your boat that you wouldn't even think about, especially in the livewell, these fish puke up all this stuff and it's– you don't even think about it but it's something that needs to be done – Invasive species are bad

We see 'em in a lot of other lakes, like Kentucky Lake, they have Asian carp, I mean we see zebra mussels in almost every lake we go to now, it seems like So it's nice to go to a lake that doesn't have 'em – With Bass, and Bassmaster, you know we strive, conservation is at the forefront of our organization, we try to set the standard for how fishing tournaments are supposed to run, and how we're supposed to protect not only the species, but our waterways, so other species can thrive and we can just have a better planet to live on (upbeat guitar music)

Setting Up a Fly Fishing Reel : Fly Fishing Nail Knot for Leader

Okay, now we've got our fly line on our reel and we need to attach the liter to the fly line This is one of the more difficult connections that you'll have to make with your fly fishing equipment

And once again we're using the nail-knot tool This tool was made specifically for tying nail-knots You can find it at most fly shops Sometimes at, you know academy or something like that It's a pretty specific tool and it doesn't really do anything else

It comes in all different kinds of shapes and styles, sometimes it'll be in the shape of a fish or something like that This one has a pair of clippers attached to it But, here's what we're going to do Lay that fly line in the nail-knot tool again with the tip sticking out The end of the liter goes the opposite direction

That lays in there with the fly line Grab the end of the liter and we're just going to wrap it back over the whole thing, going this way once again Four wraps is all we need, so, one, two, three, four wraps And then we take the end and go back underneath the wraps we just made And now is the hard part, just keeping those wraps lined up while we tighten it up and slide it off the tool

Tuck it between our thumb and your forefinger, sort of pull the tool out and then, we'll pull it from the back end here, while keeping it tight on the other end Switch over to the other hand, pull the other side You have to be careful not to pull it off the end of the fly line too, that's also a problem When it's done, it looks something like that Give it a nice tug and we're finished

How to Effectively Fish Current and Wind | Bass Fishing

Glenn: Hey folks, Glenn May here with BassResourcecom, and I'm here with Hank Parker with another edition of Hank Parker's Fishing Tips

Hank, this week's question comes from Angie Dover from Enumclaw, Washington And she says, "Why do you consider fishing objects into the current or wind so important?" Hank: Why do I consider fishing objects, casting into the wind or fishing withthrowing my bait against the current and bring it with the current? Because fish always face the current

If you're not in a river system or a lake that is generating electricity or letting water out at the dam, the wind will dictate the direction of the current When you're fishing, bank fishing small ponds and reservoirs, that current is completely dictated by the wind So it's a lot easier to cast with the wind as far as convenience and getting further cast distance But the fish unfortunately are facing that wind so you must cast into that wind if you wanna bring your lure in the direction that the fish are facing So always remember, fish always face current

It's the only way they have to stabilize themselves I don't say they never swim downstream, but when they stop, they point that nose upstream because that is the way their fins work in order for them to stabilize So they're alwayswhen they're in an ambush position, they're in a fixed position in a river or a lake, they're facing the current So that's why you bring your lure with the current, and that's why you cast into the wind Glenn: Great question, Angie Thanks so much for submitting it, and I hope it answers your question For more tips and tricks, head on over to hankparker

Oeana at the Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo: Testing for Mercury

Jaqueline Savitz>> Oceana came to the Alabama Deep Sea Rodeo because it was a great opportunity for us to sample a lot of different kinds of fish all in one place And it's a real win-win opportunity for us because the anglers are actually out there getting the fish for us, bringing them in to us, and we test them and we can provide the information back to them

And we're hoping to fill some data gaps here We're looking at some fish that haven't been sampled as frequently, that we don't have that much information on, and also looking at some fish that we do know a lot about that we think might be high in mercury and try to reinforce that data And once we do that, we hope that we can inform recreational anglers and fish in the gulf of mexico so that they can make informed choices about what they eat, what they feed their families, and maybe even what they go out looking for
