I’m sure many have noticed, but in case you missed it I recently activated two new articles on Fish Explorer.
The first has been in the works for some time, “Water Boatman/Backswimmer Time,” by Richard Pilatzke has been in the works for a couple months. However, the release is timely as backswimmers are a common food source for trout, yet go overlooked. It’s also evident that these beetles are popular table fare for warm water species. Give this article a read and I’m sure you’ll be motivated, as I am, to add a few flies imitating boatmen to your collection.
The second article is by the California State Editor and prior Colorado contributor Jeff Jones. An avid bass angler (fishes for everything as I understand it), Jeff has belonged to a number of bass clubs across the country and provides us with insight on differing aspects and reasons for joining a club wherever you live. I concur with his observations, having belonged to a number of fishing groups over the years, including my current club, Centennial Bass out of Loveland, Colorado. Give Jeff’s article, ‘California Bass Clubs are Different!” I’ve no doubt you’ll find it both entertaining and informative.
I’m always on the outlook for good content to add to FishExplorer.com, be it a blog, lake/river update, a new water to add, or articles. Note that depending on the quality of the material I will provide you with points for your efforts.
