As we talked about in our previous post - it always amazes us how little locals know about what's in their back yard. Western New York is an incredibly diverse fishery that's VERY accommodating to fly anglers. Please give this a read and SHARE with friends!

Spring is here and great fishing is upon us in Western New York (WNY).  Check out this link to see what's it’s like in our neck of the woods this time of year!

To my active duty military and veteran brothers and sisters - if you are an outdoor (fishing, hunting, hiking, camping) and/or physical fitness fanatic - go to www.promotive.com for incredible discounts on gear. Active duty service members need a .mil or .mail address and vets need a DD214 address. If you are an outdoors guide registered with your state, you get the same discounts. Check it out!

OK - so we're not into spamming the community but we have to give props where they are due. I came across this in a Gink and Gasoline blog post last summer. Long story short - I attended the course and it was an awesome experience. I learned a lot, caught a ton of fish, and met some great people with the same passion. Oh, vets/active duty military - they except the G.I. bill! Check it out. www.sweetwatertravel.com/site/guide-school.html

Poling in the wind...brutal but a lot of fun with good company (thanks to Kellie Sutton). Much respect to the coastal guys who do this all the time.

After years of abusing my body in the USMC, I'm beginning to realize how important it is to stay in shape and remain flexible if you want to stay sharp during long days on the water. Following this morning's physical therapy appointment (right shoulder issues), I spent some time searching the web for exercise and stretching programs designed with the angler in mind. There are surprisingly few articles out there - at least nothing recent. I'm going to put something together over the next few weeks and will post it but here is the most comprehensive one I found - www.in-fisherman.com/bass/pain-free-fishing/. Someone - please challenge me on this:
- Athletes need to train to remain at the top of their game.
- Anglers are athletes (and guides are professional athletes).
Therefore
- Anglers need to train
The act of fishing is only part of that training. Besides, we all can't fish every day - my brothers and sisters in the north know that better than most.
