Anytime you see some large trout being stocked in the Conservancy Park Lake (aka Tingley Beach) in Albuquerque, you know they are going to give the kids some great “catching” opportunity for our youth. Of course, since this city pond reaches high temps in the summer none of the trout holdover, so it’s a put and take fishery. And if you have kids that like to fish, like I do, it makes for some nice fresh trout dinners in the evening.
It’s taken a fair amount of work lately, I finally made the time and energy investment to create my own fly fishing website.
One of the motivations for creating it was to capture my experiences as I went out and to share them with others (I’m mostly doing this so my kids have a record of something their father loved). This fly fishing website will be a little different, it will use different types of media like google maps with video & audio.
For all the folks who liked the fly fishing movie “A River Runs Through It” (I did) there is a new movie coming with a similar fly-fishing theme “A River Why”. No clue when the release date is, but I’m sure it’s soon. Thanks to Jason Borger for posting on his blog, seems he had the inside scoop since he makes a cameo appearance 39 seconds into the trailer.
I recently ordered a medium Ghost net bag replacement (39 inch circumference at $29 total, the $5 shipping/handling is not disclosed on their website at all) to change out the net on my Brodin Pro Cutthroat net. If you read my previous post on this net you’ll understand why.
I tried to figure out how I was going to capture the process to share on this blog. Video would have been rather long and just typing the process … well … not too exciting, so what I decided to do is post the pictures of my process and add a voice recording to guide you through the pictures.
My voice recording is included below, all you need to do is play the MP3 file and follow along with the pictures which are part of this post. The audio is 8 minutes and 35 seconds long*.
