Online fly fishing and tying resources

Besides the CFF library books and DVDs, we all use the many internet resources. Regular email newsletters from our sponsors are valuable and we should sign up. The newsletters include new products and fishing/tying techniques, fishing reports, and upcoming events. For example, Mark Bachmann in his fly fishing shop weekly newsletter recently had an article describing the geological history of the Sandy River, along with present fishing potential (the subject for our February meeting).

Other weekly emails worth signing up for are Gink and Gasoline, and MidCurrent. A blog site that I’ve found valuable, with fresh techniques and perspectives, is Troutbitten.com. Finally, don’t forget Westfly.
