The accommodations were nice and the food was good, though unfortunately, the birds weren’t flying. Still, I returned from that trip in awe of all that Ducks Unlimited (DU) does for conservation; for waterfowl[…]
While in Homer, Alaska last week, we did some king salmon fishing on the Anchor River. The Anchor River is just 15 miles north of Homer and there is about a mile of river open to salmon fishing. The river is open up to a bridge that goes through Anchor, Alaska. Beyond[…]
Meet outdoor photographer and freelance writer Gretchen Steele, of Illinois, our “fish babe” for March 2011. Gretchen is a carp-crazed angler, desiring to rid the world of this pesky vermin of the water. Writes Gretchen, “It’s hard to get a traditional ‘trophy fish’ image with the carp, given their size, and the[…]
Move over, Saltwater Sportsman … here’s our “Fish Babe” for February. And as usual with the fine women anglers we feature, she’s fully clothed. It’s outdoor blogger Georgette Wood on her first-ever fly-fishing trip, guided by The WOMA member and fly fishing guide Katherine Browne on Colorado’s Gunnison River for kokanee. Here,[…]
