Continuing to share the legacy of fly fishing as well as to expand the sport, the American Museum of Fly Fishing (AMFF) has launched a new and informative web site at

The site features highlights of the museum's exhibitions, permanent collections, educational resources, and upcoming activities. In order to further serve the fly fishing community, the museum will also host several fall events including their annual Museum Free Day, Fly Fishing Festival, and HeritageAward Dinner.

Tracking Bigfoot

Bowhunters across the Bluegrass State may be gearing up for the 2012 archery deer season, but a group of hunters gathering in Morehead, Ky., last weekend had their sights on another quarry: Bigfoot. One newspaper reported about 50 people paid $75 each to attend an event that included seminars and lectures, as well as a Saturday night hunt for Sasquatch in the Daniel Boone National Forest near Cave Run Lake.

Have moose, will deliver

Think of it like pizza delivery, only with road-kill moose instead of pepperoni. For years, Alaska residents and charities could place their names on a list to acquire moose hit and killed by vehicles on the state roadways, often resulting in the need to respond to the site of the accident in the middle of the night.

Beginning this year, thanks to a partnership with the Alaska Moose Federation, the carcass is winched onto a truck and delivered straight to the lucky recipient.

Fishing report

Lake Michigan: Like the proverbial light switch, the big lake is starting to give up some nice Chinook salmon at various city locations as well as just east of Waukegan Harbor.

Fox Chain: Walleye action on Pistakee Lake is greatly improved. The same holds true for Bluff Lake in 18-20 feet of water. The Channel Lake and Lake Catherine muskie bite is on during early evening periods.

Bangs Lake: Largemouth activity slow.
