I got an email this morning from Nick Reygaert of Gin-Clear Media, who had noticed we’d posted the trailer for their Tasmania film last week. Nick pointed me to the trailer for the newest Gin-Clear film, “The Source-Iceland,” which offers some spectacular footage from the Land of Fire and Ice. There’s also a New Zealand film, and you can check out that trailer at the Gin-Clear Media Web site.Read More

Last week, severe rainstorms caused flooding regionwide, and New York’s Salmon River, which normally runs in the 350-to-700-cubic-feet-per-second range, jumped to an astonishing 25,000 cfs. By late this week, though, river levels had dropped to a more manageable 1,500 cfs, and anglers were out in force, chasing steelhead and salmon running out of Lake Ontario. Some of the best fishing…Read More
In this, the second part of a four part series on training your hunting dog (see episode 1 here) of the Double Barrel Podcast, I’m once again joined in the podcast studio by my good friend Mike Stewart of Wildrose Kennels to discuss the all-important first six months of training your puppy. Mike goes into detail about a prgram he calls “Early Starts”.
In the most recent episode of The Orvis Fly Fishing Guide Podcast, I have three tips for fly fishing for steelhead; location, timing and presentation. Since it is not as important, I threw in half a tip on tackle.
Did I leave anything out? Have more questions? Let me know by leaving a comment in the comments section.

“One Handsome Greyhound”
The word osteosarcoma is all too familiar in greyhound circles, where pet parents mourn the loss of thousands of beloved dogs each year. But there is hope in the fight against this deadly disease: The ongoing innovative research that will lead to new treatments and, ultimately, a cure.
It has long been known that some breeds have a predisposition to develop certain cancers—such as osteosarcoma in greyhounds, golden retrievers and great danes.
One promising study tests rapamycin, a drug used with human cancer patients, in treating dogs with osteosarcoma. This bone cancer clinical trial is shepherded by the Comparative Oncology Program at the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Center for Cancer Research.Read More
It’s back to school–and TU’s program, Trout in the Classroom, is part of the curriculum in hundreds of schools around the country. The program helps children learn about trout and conservation by raising trout in aquariums.
In this podcast, TU President and CEO Chris Wood talks with two TU volunteers in New York state about their experience teaching children about the wonders of trout and their life cycles. Stacey Weirl is a physical education teacher who teaches kindergarten through fifth grade at the Fox Meadow Elementary School in Scarsdale, New York. Also joining Chris is a longtime TU volunteer, John Genovesi. John is the past president of the Croton Watershed TU chapter and directs the Trout in the Classroom program in Westchester County, New York.

The cottonwoods in the Big Hole Valley are on fire, the brown trout are copper colored and spawning; it must be fall. We ended our season at Craig Fellin Outfitters & Big Hole Lodge fishing hoppers, small mayflies, and streamers. The mornings have been frosty and the fishing gets better as the day progresses. For the past few weeks we have been fishing at mid-morning and staying out late. On the great days the tricos were thick in the sun and the blue winged olives came off when the clouds rolled in. On the marginal days…Read More
