Today, we’re able to utilize more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. We now recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments (including our own) into polyester fibers to produce many of our clothes.
Michael Ernst is a diehard fishing transplant from Minnesota. He grew up guiding for muskies from a Ranger Z20 Comanche and now plies the rivers and reservoirs of Tennessee in his Jackson Big Tuna kayak for everything from muskies and stripers to crappies and trout. “In all my years of guiding from my Ranger,” Ernst says, “I was never able to spot a big muskie, target it with a lure, and make it bite. They can see you or are affected by the vibration of the trolling motor, and your odds of connecting with a trophy fish are reduced. But I‘ve often spotted muskies in clear Tennessee rivers, paddled close enough to make a good cast, and watched the fish eat the lure. The paddle strokes associated with a kayak seem like a natural splashing sound to fish that doesn’t register as threatening. They continue their feeding routine, even though you’re only a couple yards away.”
Don’t overdo it. Fishing is a lot like chess, a game of quiet movements and subtlety, not herky-jerky nonsense. Most beginners jerk the line around too much. It’s important to reel in very slowly, using calm and gentle movements on the line. If you’re not catching anything, slow your movements down and be gentler with your rod.
The black and white photography, while symbolically trying to show the black and white of the situation and relationship, just felt like an art film. This was an art film, so what am I griping about? I guess I just didn’t want to see an art film with this topic. I wanted to see something along the lines of Kids or even a documentary, not something where the uneducated will laugh at and ridicule even harder. I wanted a film that was going to punch me in the face, not build upon dated/old clichés that instead poked my mind randomly and not very hard. It was unimpressive. It wasn’t bold film-making, but instead just this random, average production about a lesbian love story. Was it to be educational? I think there were elements that could have been explored greater and into detail to cross that education/lifestyle acceptance line. The scene dealing with bisexuality is the first that comes to mind. This probably sounded great on paper, but when it was actually filmed out, it seemed high schoolish and bland. The inner voices were not struggling with the character, but instead causing confusion and chaos that will never be resolved. Another scene that could have played out just a bit better was the dinner scene where a group of lesbians have gathered for a party. There could have been more discussed between the lesbians like lifestyle, issues, and current problems (that would help with the dated feel) instead of just sex, sex, and more sex.

In the final analysis, there can be no overall winner in the bait-versus-lures contest. Each approach has its strengths and weaknesses, and each will dominate under certain conditions or on a particular day. Smart (and successful) anglers will strive to be adept at both forms of fishing!
Paul Gardner-Stephen reports that in Australia a variant is often played in which the object is to collect pairs. 7 cards are dealt to each player from a 52-card pack. The player with most pairs plays first. At your turn you ask for a card matching one you have in your hand. All pairs must be put down as soon as they are obtained – you cannot hoard a pair in hand as a basis for asking for the other two matching cards. A player who runs out of cards draws a new hand of 7 cards from the undealt stock. Play continues until everyone has run out of cards, and players score a point for each pair they have made.
The Glacier Glove Alaska River Flip-Mitt Fishing Glove is another option for anglers. This glove comes in four sizes- small, medium, large, and extra large and may be purchased for a reasonable price.
I want to impress upon anglers the need to manipulate today’s shrimp lures expertly to draw strikes from species more effectively than anything I caught on my first trip in South Florida. Catching, buying and keeping a dozen shrimp alive is inconvenient and limiting; instead, you can use the latest shrimp plastics to successfully chase species such as bonefish, striped bass, drum and speckled trout.
Contemporary kayaks can be equipped with after-market fishing accessories such as anchor trolleys, rod holders, electronic fish-finders and live-bait containers. Kayak anglers target highly prized gamefish like snook, red drum, seatrout, tarpon, halibut and cod and also pelagics like amberjacks, tuna, sailfish, wahoo, king mackerel, and even marlin.
The other week I volunteered as a guide for another Saturday event for the Maryland chapter of Heroes on the Water (HOW). This event was held on Clopper Lake, part of Seneca Creek State Park in Gaithersburg, MD. My Friday night routine was the same as for any other kayak fishing excursion: prep rods and reels, inventory and select tackle, charge GoPro batteries, check weather forecast and then try and get some sleep. The last one is always the hardest for me – I still feel like a kid the night before departing on a trip to Disney World.
North Branch Potomac River – (see local maps for directions to Lostland Run, MD and Barnum, WV.) Call 410-962-7687 for flow conditions or visit the USGS website. Fish species include Brown Trout, Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout, Smallmouth Bass.
Try jigs. Jigs are probably the most common lure used in both fresh and saltwater fishing. They consist of a weighted head and a tail made of feathers or plastic, which is used to conceal a hook. Often a piece of live bait will be attached to the hook to make the lure even more enticing, though this isn’t strictly necessary.
The line and the lure are the easy parts. But the know-how? That’s where things get a bit tricky. Without live bait, the only way to attract a fish is by precise movements, scents, and sounds. The intricate dance that ensues is about much more than sitting and waiting. It’s a detailed and subtle hunt that requires patience and precision.
Although duct tape does offer a solution to a wide variety of problems, using duct tape to fix a ripped hole on your fishing gloves is not one of them. Because you are dealing with water, the duct tape will not hold for a long time when operating under those conditions. In addition to this, duct tape does not offer you much protection from being cut by a fish, as it will slice thru the duct tape. best practice here is if your fishing glove has been ripped, then it is time to replace.
These are the same cloth-backed vinyl work gloves used by commercial fishermen for the toughest, nastiest jobs. They feature a doubledipped, seamless PVC non-slip surface from the wrist to the fingertips and a high-top cuff that extends up your arm to keep your sleeves dry while providing excellent grip.
