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.

    The DrakeCast Episode #39 - Father's Day: David, Chuck & Grady Ragan Before Chuck Ragan appeared in the 2018 F3T Film "Landsick," he was a musician, a fishing guide, and a father. But before Ragan acheived any of these titles, he was a son. This episode of The DrakeCast is a celebration of fatherhood and the outdoors. Tune in as we follow Chuck Ragan's rebellion against his father that eventually led to a deep relationship with music (Hot Water Music) and flyfishing (crflyfishing.com).

  • The DrakeCast Episode #38 - Stripers on Lake Hartwell

    Featured Content Jun 10, 2018 | 12:48 pm

    The DrakeCast Episode #38 - Stripers on Lake Hartwell Though native to the coastal rivers of the Atlantic seaboard, you can now find Striped Bass in just about every state below the Mason-Dixon line. We chose to chase these creatures on Lake Hartwell which forms the border between Georgia and South Carolina. While we’re on the water we learned about the history of the area discussed whether or not this fishery is healthy. And we don’t mean that in an ecological sense; we mean in relation to our health as humans.

    Featured Content May 29, 2018 | 10:57 am

    The DrakeCast Episode #37: Mosquito Lagoon Mosquito Lagoon sits on Florida's East Coast and is known as the redfish capitol of the world. We made a visit to these hallowed waters to see what all the hubbub is about. While poling around in search of tails, we found a much more interesting, disturbing tale of neglect, destruction, and a fishery on the edge. By the end of this episode we'll have to ask ourselves about the effectiveness of every current conservation project around the world.

Any Waders or Wading boots with HBP marked on them.

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.
