It’s Fry Time!

 

Fry

For most Alaskan fly fishers spring brings melting snow and thoughts summer fishing, with (hopefully) sunshine and green things growing everywhere.  But some of us have discovered we can have frys with our spring.

Salmon eggs laid last fall have been hatching under the ice, slowly developing into alevins (yoke sac fry). As ice pulls away from the spawning beds, the alevin, having used up their yoke sac, become fry. New fry swim to the surface, gulp some air to fill their air bladder, and begin free swimming and feeding. It’s at this point in their young lives that fry become available to all the other fish that have been on minimum rations through winter.

Ben Winship & David Thompson wrote this piece for their album Fishing Music II. It’s a great album with a pretty wide range of music. This one is hilarious! Give it a listen and head over to their store at http://store.benwinship.com/ to buy a copy of this one and their first – Fishing Music. Very good stuff!

Video from our friend Greg Heister

Fly Fishing – Silvers On The Fly from Greg Heister on Vimeo.

Greg lived here in Alaska with us for many years. Now a resident of Spokane he fishes here when he can. This video is part of a series Greg produces called Seasons On the Fly. It’s shown on Versus weekends and covers fly fishing better than most of the other shows. If you go to Vimeo you can see segments of several of his shows or go directly to the web site at SeasonsOnTheFly.com. Enjoy! Get’em Greg!
