The Fly Tying Menu now contains links to articles or posts from Fly Fish Food, Fly Tying 123, Fly Tying Reddit and Orvis.  Each of these links should display a content snippet from the latest 10 articles appearing in these sites' RSS feeds.  The snippet will display the first 200 words and will also contain a link to allow you to read more on the host site.  

The News menu now contains links to the California DFW, CalTrout, CSPA, Drake Magazine, International Federation of Fly Fishers (IFFF), South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL), Trout Unlimited and the Water Education Foundation. Mostof these links will also display a content snippet from the latest 10 articles appearing in these sites' RSS feeds.  The snippet will display the first 200 words and will also contain a link to allow you to read more on the host site.  CA DFW and TU are set up to display the latest posts by those organizations on Twitter.

The Trip Reports Menu now contains links to my reports, as well as posts from Alpine Fly Fishing, Andy Guibord, California Fly Fishing, Confluence Outfitters, Fish Kennedy Brothers, Fly Fish Nevada, Fly Fishing Specialties, Four Seasons Fly Fishing, Gilligan's Guide Service, Jack Trout, Jon Baiochhi, Kern River Fly Fishing, Lost Coast Outfitters, Matt Heron, Norcal Fly Guides, Northern Califonia Trout, Pyramid Lake Fly Fishing, Pyramid Lake Guides, Reno Fly Fishing Outfitters, Reno Fly Shop, RJ's Fly Trips, SC Guide Service, Sierra Fly Fisher, Steelhead on the Spey Guide Service, Tahoe Fly Fishing Outfitters, The Trout Spot, Tight Lines Guide Services, Trinity Fly Shop, Truckee River Fly Fishing, Wild Waters and Yosemite Fly Fishing Guide.  Each of these links will also display a content snippet from the latest 10 articles appearing in these sites' RSS feeds.  The snippet will display the first 200 words and will also contain a link to allow you to read more on the host site.  

The Tips Menu now contains links to posts from Ask About Fly Fishing, Chris Parsons, Fly Fishing Traditions and The Other Side of California.

I spent a bunch of time recently adding links to various fly tying sites, guides, informational sites, organizations, retail sites and water information sites.  These can be found sorted by category in the Links menu.  All of the sites listed above have been added in one of the categories.

  • Places, Plates, and Permit

    Places, Plates, and Permit Artist Cody Richardson goes huntingFor artist Cody Richardson there’s no more enticing silhouette than the one belonging to a certain fish that he hasn’t yet caught. “To me it’s like the elk hunting of flyfishing,” he says of permit, as he pours us a couple of beers in his Windsor, Colorado workshop. “They’re so smart and you have to work so hard to get them. When you do finally hook and land one, is there a more perfect fish?”

  • The DrakeCast Episode #42: SoCal Bassin'

    Featured Content Jul 22, 2018 | 15:59 pm

    The DrakeCast Episode #42: SoCal Bassin' This episode of The DrakeCast is a two-fer, and both segments focus on the backyard bass of Southern California. We start in Long Beach Harbor with Captain Vaughn Podmore where we search for sea creatures in the shadow of lighthouses, cranes, and military helicoptors. For the second half of the episode, we head south to San Diego Bay. Both of these fisheries are incredibly accessible and it made us wonder, what other hidden gems are within major city limits across the country?

Any fly rods marked Bill Carnazo.

Horseshoe Bar Fish and Game Preserve is devastated to announce that thieves broke into our storage area where we house our equipment for the Wounded Warrior Event that is held the first week in October every year. Finding out that someone felt they needed to steal from these veterans is heart breaking. It is like stealing from a church or organization that helps the needy of our community. This break-in will set us back many years as the amount of equipment they stole exceeds $25,000. Much of the equipment has the initials HBP written on it. Only the veterans that attended our events or members of Horseshoe Bar Preserve would have equipment with the “HBP” letters printed on it.. Any other gear was most likely this equipment that was stolen during the break in this week. If you see this equipment being sold, please contact me immediately at 916-205-6073 or the sheriff’s department to report it. (Placer County Sheriff)

If you see this equipment being sold, do not say anything or accuse anyone. Make note of the time, location, description of the items and persons involved.

Please contact Tom Bartos, manager of Horseshoe Bar Preserve immediately at 916-205-6073 or you’re local police department and let them know you believe it may have been equipment stolen from Horseshoe Bar Preserve in Foresthill, CA.
Reference Police Report # 15-11343.

This equipment was used for a very good veterans program and its loss is huge!!

If you would like to help us replenish the equipment that was stolen, please contact us at , 916-205-6073 or go to our website: www.horseshoebarpreserve.com/ww where you can make a donation.
