Fly Fishing for Trout with Gary Borger was one of the first Fly fishing videos that I watched when I first started out fly fishing some 20-plus years ago. This a older video that I think can still help out someone new to fly fishing today. It help me out a lot when I was just starting and was trying to leaning how to approach a trout stream, what fishing method to use and the type of flies I needed.

Lately I have been reminded on how we can and do impact the lives of others. It’s been fascinating to watch my three year old granddaughter gain awareness of the world around her. As we’ve turned over rock s looking for bugs in the yard,walked in the woods or chased ducks around the pond , she is becoming aware of nature. I hope that I can instill the love of nature and the outdoors in her that my grandfather gave to me. We all have the opportunity to influence lives on a very personal level. I would hope each and everyone of us makes the investment to share our love of nature with at least one other person, especially our youth. It’s our future. As we close out 2013, I am excited about our expanded plans for 2014. We will be holding a major fundraiser, supporting youth education via the TroutCamp, building on our membership education programs and expanding our Chapter trips.
I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving. Be safe and I will see you at the

Now that cold weather is here and we can not get out and fish as much as we like. Now maybe the time to work on learning some new fishing knots. A great place to start is animatedknots.com under the fishing tab Link
The Improved Clinch, Surgeon’s Knot and Perfection Loop are the knots I keep finding myself using all the time. I have been working on the Orvis knot and I going to start on the Dopper loop. What ever your knot skills are this is a good site to you improve them.
