So grab a fly fishing lure and head to your favorite fishing spot!

Bass Fly Fishing I left Los Angeles to go fly fishing at “the Canals” My flies: chartreuse/white and orange/white clousers (I found these two colors work the best), reddish crayfish, foam spiders (normally used for panfish, but the smallies attack it like crazy, EXPLOSION CITY! ), and a black pencil popper (no name for this fly I just tied what I think might work) I made. I lost count after 40 bass. All and all it was an awesome day of fishing. My next video will be of the Colorado River. All my fish were released unharmed. So GET LOST PETA!!! I had to remake this because my girlfriend thinks my videos are the most boring thing on earth. WOMEN }:| by Jerry Phan :D

The Best Knife for Fishing


A lasting tradition of value, performance and quality, Buck has been one the leading manufacturers of one of the best and finest knives made in USA today. For over a century now, they have been known to make their knives so well and that’s the reason why they put their name on every knife that they make. Although the times have changed, the need for a fishing knife that is reliable continues to be the same. This is the reason why the Buck knives continues to find a way in which to improve their fishing knives so that they can meet the needs of every fisherman.Buck-Knives

Despite all the challenges that our economy is experiencing, Buck knives strives to earn confidence and trust from their clients with each fishing knife they buy. Whether it be one of their famous series knives or a custom made fishing knife, Buck knows that they have the right fishing knife for you and at a reasonable price. The Buck Model 110 is without a doubt one of the greatest knives ever made for fishing, find out more here.

Steel is the soul and heart of a knife. This is what buck does with steel which distinguishes them from their competitors. There are three factors that can be used to measure the degree of a quality blade: strength and ductility which determines how much force your blade can withstand, edge retention which is how long the sharpness or edge of the blade will last and lastly corrosion resistance which is how well your blade is shielded from the Mother Nature elements as well as yourself.

The process of the combination of raw elements at the Bucks’ determines the desired Rockwell Hardness and the level of quality of their fishing knives. These knives are made under the direct supervision of their in-house expert who makes sure that all the above qualities are met in every knife made. They take their knives through a precisely controlled process, changing raw steel into a perfect combination of ductility, hardness, corrosion resistance, hardness and edge retention.

Another crucial step that they take in the manufacturing process of their fishing knives is the grinding process. Grind refers to the gradual slope from the top all the way to the cutting edge of the blade. In their years of experience, Buck have found that the best grind for stronger, sharper blade is the semi-hollow grind, which is used in all their knives.

Lastly, the final test that Buck makes on every fishing knife as well as all other knives, is their final process which involves from testing the Rockwell Hardness of the newly made blades to the last test by their quality control team.

January and February Fly-fishing Clinic

Ultralight fly fishing is a great way to catch fish, but many people do not know where to begin. Not only do people not know about casting, rigging or knot tying, they simply do not know where the best areas are to fish. This January and February, however, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission is putting on a plethora of events to help the public learn how to fly fish. The event is aimed towards those that either want a refresher or that have never went fly fishing before. While the pros will not learn much at the clinic, it is going to be a great clinic that costs a mere $5.

Two ponds are being filled with 1,000 catchable-sized trout in anticipation for the clinic. Brook, rainbow and brown trout have already been stocked on December 20th. If you want to go to the clinic, it is best to pre-register so that you know you will have a spot available. There are only 40 spots open for each clinic and they fill up fast.

The event will take place in Fayetteville and anyone interested will be able to call the Pechmann Center for more information. Currently, three clinics are scheduled occurring on:

  • January 18th
  • February 1
  • February 15th

All clinics will begin at 9 am and end at 3 pm. Those that attend the event will be catching fish using the proper technique and equipment. Loaner rods and bait will be available so that participants do not need to worry about purchasing their own gear for the event. This is a great opportunity for anyone near the Fayetteville area to learn how to fly fish. Among the basics that will be taught are:

  • Casting
  • Rigging
  • Knot tying

Anyone that is interested in going to the clinic can call the Pechmann Center at 910 868-5003.

Backpack fishing electronics

So you are in the great outdoors, and you are feeling hungry – it’s nearly lunchtime. You come across a river, and your eyes brighten up. Lunch is served!

You’ve probably got a collapsible fishing rod in your backpack, which you pull out, put together, and cast away. Or if you are more badass, maybe you fish with just a line in your hand and yank it up just like that.

There’s just one catch(yes, I just said that!). You are hungry, and the fish are in a testy mood. What if it takes you five, ten, even 15 tries before you get a bite? How long should you keep your line in one spot?
The solution: really tiny portable fish finders that you carry with you in your backpack. They take no space at all – you won’t even remember it’s there until you pull out your fishing line.

smartcast-rf-15e-3v4xorThe fish finders have a sensor that you tie onto your fishing line before you cast it out. Then you throw your line, and the sensor will send sonar beams into the water, receive them, and send them back to your device.

 So far, Humminbird is the only company that makes these fish finders – there’s also Hawkeye, but Humminbirds are much higher quality. If you are a Lowrance or Garmin guy, you will have to wait until they come out with their own!

 The device will show you whatever the sensor is picking up – so you know within seconds of a cast if there are any fish in that spot or not. If there aren’t, just reel up your line and cast somewhere else!

It’s so versatile that you can take it literally anywhere. As long as your cast is within 100 feet of you, you can receive a pretty strong signal. If you are superman and can manage to throw a fishing line further than 100 feet away, you can probably dive in the water and grab the fish yourself!

 So now, instead of waiting, waiting, and waiting, you can know right off the bat, and not delay your lunch any more than it needs to be.

 Lunch? I want dinner! You may say. No worries – the portable device has a backlight, so any fish that tries to outsmart you thinking you can’t find it at night is gravely mistaken. It’s not that you won’t find it – it will find you, staring down at it as it lays roasted on your plate.

 The assembly is pretty simple. When you open the box, there will be a fish finder, a transmitter, and an instruction manual. You can tie the transmitter onto anything as long as it’s a string of some sort. So whether it’s a nylon fishing line or just some thread you stuffed into your backpack as a precaution, the fish finder won’t fail you.

Patience and Self-discipline: Learning From Barry Foster

Producer Host Barry Foster

Barry Foster has enough passion to compel fishermen across the world to get out and enjoy an afternoon of fishing. The host of Gulf South Outdoors, however, believes that are the most vital aspects of being a successful fisherman. These two traits, are the foundation that any prospective fisherman or hobbyist will want to adhere to greatly.


Oftentimes, people will pack up their gear for the day and call it quits after just one hour of fishing. This usually ends with the next person catching a plethora of fish in the same spot. While many do not realize it, fishing is very scientific. There are many factors that will determine a good fishing day from a bad one. The weather, fish behavior, time of day and the current bait being used will change every time. This leads directly into the next point.


Fishermen have to be prepared for the unexpected. This means that instead of relying on heavy-duty tackle, bring along all of the appropriate gear for ultralight fishing as well. Those that are consistently reeling in fish have learned that they need to be prepared. The plans for the day never turn out exactly how a person has envisioned. Instead, fish will bite all throughout the day on Sunday and will be scarce on Monday.

Ultralight Tackle

Every person that is serious about fishing will need to divert from the heavy-duty tackle and test the waters with their ultralight fishing gear. A good assortment of equipment will include:

  • Lighted fishing bobbers which are great for night fishing.
  • An ultralight rod and reel. Graphite rods are the perfect choice.
  • Super lines are becoming extremely popular as they are very durable, yet thin.

Learning when to persist with current gear or when to finally change tactics can lead to a great day outdoors. Never put all of your trust in one method as factors can and will change quickly. Bring along both heavy-duty and ultralight tackle to make the most out of the day. If the pros are doing it, the hobbyist will need to as well.
