Trout Up Products

Trout Up products offer rugged protection from insects and the sun’s harmful UV rays without the use of tricky chemicals, like DEET, which have been proven toxic to fish and the waters they live in.

Reports from the C4C Tournament in Steamboat were that the insect repellent worked well in heavy mosquitoes, we'll test some out at the C4C event in Victor Idaho at the end of the month.

Name that scat

Last month I did my annual trip to the Northern Sierras.  Armed with a three weight and a jonesn' for some intense hiking, I spent a lot of time wandering the elevation.  At one point I had interesting poop sighting - one that didn't resemble any bear or hoofed animals I'm aware of - that said, I'm no scatologist.

Let this serve as a shout-out to the Chum Nation for a little help.  Details:

  • elevation: 6500 feet
  • nearest city: Quincy, CA
  • known large animals in the area: human, black bear, cougar, deer
  • scat size in these photos: diameter of a medium sized dinner plate
  • There were 20 similar piles of this (pun intended) crap scattered across the area of a 1/2 acre

Thoughts?
