  3. It was a warm early August day, I hit the road and headed West. It was late morning when I arrived at my first stop, the stream looked very low. Within minutes I had tempted no less than 4 trout to the end of my line and somehow they all got off before I could bring them in. I moved on further West to my actual destination stream, upon arrival I ran into a couple fans of the New Wave Angler series … after a quick chat I set off up stream where I quickly got my hands onto a 16 inch cutthroat - but not in a good way. After that I managed to lose another 4 fish in a row before finally managing a couple different species all the way to the net …. The place was beautiful the trout were hungry … Enjoy!!

  4. Thank you. I recently had a foul encounter with a person with an off-leash dog (leash required iaw bylaw in this urban area). This person initially received a smile of acknowledgement and a friendly peace sign as he passed behind me on the trail. I did not see the dog at that time. I was quite surprised when a ball landed in precisely the area where I was casting and a large retriever splashed into my immediate space. Then it happened a second time. I had already moved twice this particular evening. Once for two drunk persons stumbling toward me with their rods and once when two lovebirds came along and started throwing rocks into my zone. This third deliberate act blew my fuse. We had words. Lots of heated words. This summer of 2022 I have had several unpleasant encounters with non fisher folk. One set of simpleton parents helped their toddler lug three small boulders so their child could drop them off the bridge. Under the bridge, a scant 5 metres away where two young lads, about 10, catching Whitefish after Whitefish... really having a good time with one another and it was a pleasure to watch. But when the first boulder came down with a splash... that caught my attention. I raised my voice as the second and third boulders splashed, instructing the supposedly responsible adult parents that there were two people trying to fish under the bridge and they must stop immediately. The parent with the nominal pronoun she responded with the statement: I didn't hit any fish. I am deeply despairing of this kind of behaviour. I no longer fish the urban area nearby, I go further afield to avoid members of my own species who have become unbearable in their stupidity and selfishness.

  9. "This Time Out" By Wade “Diddy” Richardson Inspired by Cody Lambert’s “Cowboy Is His Name” There’s hundreds of years of history At least forty that are mine I’ve got nine feet of leader A fly at the end of my line It’s that desire that burns inside us From May’s melting waters til Octobers early ice The skills we’ve honed to land us here Are worth every sacrifice All our miles of dusty drivin All the gas money down the drink All the wooly buggers & The Prince Nymphs All the dry flies and the Gink All our busted off tears left drying All the splashing of the fight That’s just a small down payment On the take we get tonight Its guts and love and stories A little kids chance to dream Our legacy is on the water You can find us at the stream Well fellow fly fishers, this story takes place in late July on a perfect Sunday afternoon. I headed West towards what is fast becoming one of my favorite little trout streams. Where? You ask, well I should probably “Keep it down now … Voices Carry”. On the way I captured creatures big and small on film as well as some beautiful hillsides covered in wildflowers, all that before I got into a nearly 20 fish afternoon with many of them captured here in the newest episode of The New Wave Angler … Enjoy and please remember to Like & Subscribe if you enjoy the content. Let me know what you think of the vid and even the poem ... Here is “SUNDAY TROUT”

  11. Hope the message gets received by the right audience. I also hope the "birds" stop moving fish around their province with their buckets and cars
