Re: David Attenborough: a life on our planet

The human species is the exact opposite, it destroys everything in it's path to economic growth. Man, I couldn't agree with you more. The overpopulated human race is like a giant swarm of locust consuming everything in its path. I chose not to participate in adding to the numbers, and in the "one o...

Re: Loose grip no squeeze stop?

Hi, Craig. You are correct in Joan's squeeze stop. It's just that when I think about engaging the thumb and all of the fingers, things go awry more easily than when I think of just using the ring and pinky fingers. It's thinking less about the thumb and finger roll (like milking a cow) and more abou...

Re: Loose grip no squeeze stop?

How would you break them all down? Richard's & Perkin's analyzer with slow-mo video? The results would be fascinating and instructive.

Re: Loose grip no squeeze stop?

There is the tightened grip locking the forearm muscles, what I expect John might consider a block. Then there are the multitude of micro wrists that accelerate the rod, but do not necessarily mean the grip tightens. Mac turned me on to a subtler form he considers "pulling", where the fingers furth...

Re: Loose grip no squeeze stop?

Paul/Nick, what about the basic overhead cast? Do you use a squeeze, or do you just stop? It seems to me, and I certainly am prone to being wrong, that you don't need to squeeze the stop, so long as you stop. I feel like the squeeze just punctuates the stop for the caster, like a period. But you can...

Re: Change leverage

I'm not a physicist, but it depends upon where the fulcrum is. As long as the fulcrum is on the end and the force is near it, it probably remains a class 3 lever. https://images.app.goo.gl/4VFhJRx74eSL9swq8

Re: Oversaturation - FP by Martyn White on Sunday, 18 October 2020

It sounds like a consistent theme: Over time, we become less interested in the size of the fish and more interested in the experience. It's not about size, even though I'd like to catch a wild 24" +/- brown someday. Like Boisker, when I catch a large fish for the water, that's good enough. For me it...

Re: The evolution of Catch and Release

There also can be education on what happens to a fish's gill filaments when kept out of the water too long: The filaments dry and stick together. And putting them back in the water doesn't necessarily guarantee they will rehydrate and unstick. It's essentially damaging their lungs, giving them COPD....

Re: The evolution of Catch and Release

So I asked Colorado Parks and Wildlife whether they would consider requiring anglers to watch a video regarding best catch and release practices before getting a fishing license. The video could also instruct anglers about redds, what they are, where to find them, what they look like, and why to sta...
