Editor’s Note: “First Casts” is a regular feature that highlights great fly-fishing content from around the Web—from how-to articles, to photo essays, to interesting reads.

  • Marshal Cutchin of Midcurrent offers a great audio/print interview with musky-fishing guru Robert Tomes. If you’ve ever dreamed of catching one of these huge, toothy beasts, you’ll want to check this out.
  • Beau Beasley continues to dig deeper into questions of landowner rights and angler access in his native Virginia. But this may turn out to to be the most pressing issue facing anglers in states across the country, as battles in Montana, North Carolina, Idaho, and Pennsylvania  demonstrate. Read Beau’s “Who Owns the Hazel River,” on Blue Ridge Outdoors.
  • Fall is a great time to be fishing in Western Montana, and The Missoulian asked several accomplished anglers—from famed angler/author Doug Swisher to UNLV football coach Bobby Hauck—to name their favorite flies for fall.
