The keys to catching good numbers of trout on steep mountain streams are stealth and speed. Wild brook trout are wary, fast, and can hide in tiny spaces. There are lots of predators that eat these fish, so they’ve evolved heightened senses and evasive maneuvers. You need to learn how to move and fish upstream without spooking the fish in front of you, and you want to cover as much water as possible to get your fly in front of more fish. Think stealth and speed…

A couple weeks ago, we posted about how the Maryland legislature, unable to come up with a compromise bill that would please both houses, failed to act on anti-breed-specific legislation that both sides actually agreed on in principle. Now, the Maryland Court of Appeals has muddied the waters further by partially reversing a ruling it made declaring pit bulls “inherently dangerous.” In the original ruling the Court had applied the “inherently dangerous” tag to. . .
This is an astonishing video about photographer Marc Montocchio’s quest to photograph bonefish and permit in their natural environments on the flats of Mexico’s Yucatan. It offers exceptional footage of feeding bones and schools of permit. While there are great shots of anglers preparing to go out on the water, there isn’t really. . .

Here’s a great list of dog-safety tips from the MetroWest Daily News, in which author Allen Jung touches on a few things many dog owners may not have thought of. For instance, did you know that you shouldn’t fill your dog’s water dish out of a. . .

[Editor’s note: I received these great photos, along with a somewhat feverish tale, from Jim Lampros last week. The writing here makes me question whether his symptoms have been alleviated or if he has only become sicker.]
I’ve been told it’s a disease for which there is no cure. It presents in the form of a visibly flushed face, bronzish gold skin, and legions of black spots becoming more pronounced towards the hind end. Hallucinations day and night, visions of snake-infested canyons, scorching heat, raging death-water. Recurring nightmares in which I’m forced to stare relentlessly at a. . .
Last week, we posted a moving photo of a dying woman and her dog, and we talked about how dogs can bring comfort at the end of life. Here’s a video in which the tables are turned. A stray dog on the streets of Singapore receives the kind of. . .
Welcome to another edition of the OrvisNews.com Friday Film Festival, in which we scour the Web for the best fly-fishing footage available. I must say, I kind of went a little nutty this week, choosing eighteen (18!) videos for you to enjoy. What’s cool is that there is so much variety, and not just in locations and species. There are many different styles of. . .
Alas, these cases seem to be all too frequent recently, but this one has a twist. The owners of a North Carolina breeding operation were charged yesterday with animal cruelty after a raid seized 28 dogs, big dogs, from their home. The couple bred Great Danes, Mastiffs, and Doberman Pinschers in kennels behind their mobile home, and neighbors had claimed for years that there were problems. But their complaints had not been. . .
