Turn up the sound, The Crystal Method shouting loud in your speakers you’re going to love that fast and furious film about easy fishing in Yellowstone! It seems so easy it’s sick! I want to be now, in Yellowstone park when the crickets are jumping in the river and you cast flies that look like a flip flop with a hook!
The Pitt River, BC, Canada, you’l be so obsessed with it you’ll wake you up at night, Steelhead, bears, freindship, amazing landscapes. Just what we love.
Music – Wildcat! Wildcat! – Please and Thank You

It’s always more than just a fight for nature’s rights to have a dam removed, so when it happens we really have to shout it out, the San Clemente Dam is down so Californian Steelhead can travel free! We should all fight against dams who get in the way of wild fish, this is a proof, thanks to TU and all the others organizations involved, that it’s not impossible! Please if there is an organization around you (or in your country or even abroad) who’s fighting for letting the way for migratory fish, help them out! Wind turbines can provide as much electriciy as an old dam. Hurray for San Clemente!
We love it. Fifteen seconds = a fly fisher’s dream, no talk no fuss, the real thing. The end of the endless boring films with a teaching voice over. This is what a ristretto is to dishwater coffee. It’ll sure wake you up!
How much do we love our rivers? How deep is our love for them? They give us all the joy we need, they are our source of happiness, but beyond that, how many of them are really wild and don’t suffer from men’s action, agriculture, mining, industries….very few, at least in Europe. Unfortunatly for a lot of rivers it’s too late or too expensive or complicated to go back to what they were, but for the others, the few ones that are totaly wild, they need our help, they need our protection, and who better than anyone else is a fisherman to take action for those wild rivers? Join Rivières Sauvages, we start here in France, then it’ll be Europe and then it might eventualy be all the wild rivers of the world that we could protect! Take action. We showed the trailer a few years ago, now it’s the entire film.
Thanks to P Zarn Martin who posted that on Fck, a nice postcard from the past, when the rods were made of greenheart and the guides were eyelets, the lines were made of silk and the rivers were still full of fish. As for the rods, anyone having tried one of those wooden poles knows that the good old days weren’t good at all.
Of course, it’s often cold and dark, sometimes it’s just hell. But at times everything aligns and it’s simply one of the absolute best place in the world to explore with a fly rod. And a Glock, maybe, because it’s packed with grizzly bears.
Cindy, Jason, we’re coming to see you asap!
At eighteen, you can do whatever you do, you have k now reached the age of experiments, you can go wild and make your own mistakes, no one is there for backup anymore, and at eighteen there is that inner strentgh that no one else has, the world is yours and everything is available, you just have to go and get it! So happy #18 Scale Magazine! And this issue (as every Scale issue) rocks! As usual it’s offering us the best of both worlds, and that’s why we love it! But watch out because in Southern Europe and soon on a larger scale, more kids are leaving lures to embrace fly fishing! Anyway, you want to have fun and enjoy a real adventure? Read it!
