Bass Fishing - Recreation or Obsession?
First of all, we need to look at the word ... recreation. When I break it down, it comes out re-creation.
What this means to me is a re-creating of myself; a way to get away from it all and do some soul searching and some thinking and ... re-create my ideas, inspirations and motivations; a break in the pattern that allows me to reconsider things in my life and make adjustments.
But the term is large. Typically, recreation means activity. What do you do for recreation? Watch TV? Garden? Go out to restaurants or bars?...

Successful Fishing: The Mysterious e Factor.....
Successful Fishing: The mysterious "e" Factor.
There has always been a strange, and to this day, unsolved mysterious theory in the fishing world.
My wife knows of this theory and she thinks I am crazy, paranoid, and maybe even a little hard up.
The theory is based on secrets that have been held by a small but priveleged group of men, who have sworn secrecy and taken blood oaths, in order to keep the modern societies from crumbling.
I reveal this secret at great peril and with no apparent regard to the ramifications that may take place, out of an act of final frustration....

General Overview About Trout Senses
When fly fishing for trout, it is of crucial importance to understand their senses. Trout are fish, after all, and make different use of their senses than we do.

From Personal Belly Boats to High Performance Racers - An Overview of Inflatable Boats
Evolution of the Inflatable Boat
Historical records indicate that the first inflatable boats were animal skins filled with air. Over the years, many cultures have created various versions of inflatable watercraft, and in 1839, the Duke of Wellington tested the first inflatable pontoons. In the decades that followed, many new designs were introduced and some of them were utilized by European military forces.
The inflatable boats were used to transport torpedoes and other cargo. They also allowed troops to make discreet landings in shallow water, and their compact size and storability made them easy to bring with, even on overland marches where it would not have been possible to bring a traditional boat....
Do Fish See in Color
Fish do indeed perceive color. Every fly fisher knows that or ought to know that. Like humans, the retina of a fish have rods and cones. Cones are used in the day and rods at night. Color vision evolved to help fish identify potential food. In the environment of the fish, the background will either be the bottom, the water itself, or if looking up for food it could be the sky. The bottom is normally tannish olive to green. When looking across the water, the background appears pale silver blue. But if the water is off color due to algae or high water one must take that into consideration as well....
