Written by: Phil Monahan

April Vokey should be familiar to blog readers, as we have featured her several times already (here, here, and here, for instance.) Above is a video of April giving a presentation on the double haul at a German fly-fishing fair. She has some trouble with audience participation, but the casting instruction is spot on. She discusses some of the most common errors she sees, and then she even gets into. . .

Video: Cathy Beck in the New Zealand Backcountry


Written by: Phil Monahan

Here’s some cool footage of Cathy Beck heading out to fish a remote New Zealand river. Having experienced such a helicopter ride, I can tell you that it’s a serious thrill. By the time you land on a gravel bar or next to the river, you are champing at the bit to catch trout.

For those of you who don’t know, Cathy is a brilliant angler, as well as being one half of the nicest couple in fly fishing, along with photographer-husband Barry.

Video: A Mother and Daughter Share a Love of Fly Fishing


Written by: Phil Monahan

I stumbled on this great video about a mom and daughter who fly-fish around the world together, and it took a couple minutes before I realized that the narrator was Whitney McDowell, whom I’ve known for years. She was the marketing manager for a fly-fishing company in the mid 2000s, when I was editing American Angler, and I’d see her at trade shows and events and talk to her on the phone occasionally. Although I probably haven’t actually laid eyes on her in five years or so, I see what she’s up to on Facebook and get jealous a lot.

We have previously featured Whitney’s. . .

Video: Braving the Elements to Promote Orvis’s New Women’s Waders


Written by: Phil Monahan

As if anyone needed more proof that tons of awesome women work at Orvis, check out this video from a photoshoot today on the Battenkill in West Arlington, Vermont. With the temperature hovering around 40 degrees and a 15-mile-an-hour wind that cut right through you, six of the women who had served as fit models for the new Silver Sonic Convertible-Top Wader braved the frigid river so we could get some photos for an upcoming article. As you can see, . . .
