Mikey Wier won the Truckee River One-Fly Tournament tournament and donated the grand prize back to the UNR student chapter of The Wildlife Society in an effort to help raise more funds for future events.
I fished the one fly tournament this weekend on the truckee. It was a great event put on at the Nature Conservancy land by the UNR wildlife society club. I almost went with the nymph, but decided to go big and fish a streamer at the last minute. The water was a bit mudded up and high from that last storm. I had never fished that water and it was a bit tough, but I ended up getting a couple nice fish. It was good enough for first and I decided to donate the prize to the club because they did a great job putting on the event. I just got this e-mail that they are going to auction it off to raise some money for their club. It's a great group of kids. Please pass this on to anyone you think might need a new orvis 5 wt and matching reel.
This is a blind auction so e-mail your bid to firstname.lastname@example.org, deadline for bids is November 4th.
We woke up one morning about 6 months ago and found out that The Netherlands had a bit of a Chum presence. Now, thanks to Jeroen Schoondergang, we're getting some love in a local magazine - De Roofvis. This issue hit the streets today. Needless to say - we're honored!
The days that fly fishing was the exclusive pastime of dusty old gentlemen in tweed costumes, fishing very expensive trout and salmon streams, are long behind us. Websites like www.moldychum.com, who consider fly fishing to be more a lifestyle than a hobby, are the proof that a younger, cooler audience is drawn to fly fishing. MC’s look at fly fishing is tantalizing and sometimes even cheeky, but always with a healthy dose of self-mockery.
The short articles, weblogs and podcasts on this website go beyond just fishing. They are also about ‘side-issues’ like nature and environment, art and even fly fishing pin-ups. The site is updated daily, so it certainly pays to bookmark it and take a regular visit.

Also available as a t-shirt ........along with this soon to be classic.
