3/14 — Yankee Fisherman No. 3
Learn all about fishing wet flies when Yankee Fisherman welcomes Steve Culton, a Farmington River guide, professional fly tyer, moderator on flyaddict.com, and outdoor writer.
In an in-depth interview, Culton covers everything from the structure to the proper drift toward an historic way of catching fish which many anglers inexplicably don’t use.
Culton’s work has appeared in places like American Angler, Flyfishing & Tying Journal, Eastern Fly Fishing, Fly Rod & Reel Online, and Mid Atlantic Fly Fishing Guide.
Take a trip to Culton’s website, currentseams.wordpress.com, and find a Hendrickson that’s the only fly he uses during that productive hatch.
Mike Beauchene, supervising fisheries biologist for the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, updates Yankee Fisherman on the state’s trout stocking program as opening day approaches. The numbers: a half a million fish being stocked in six weeks.
Then it’s back to flies and tying as Steve Zakur, president of Candlewood Valley TU, previews his chapter’s “Our Secret Flies” demonstration.
