Yankee Fisherman, Thursday, Aug. 25, 2016

The Internet, saltwater fishing, trout and fly tying come together on a best of Yankee Fisherman, Thursday, Aug. 25, at 1 p.m. at Han.Network.

Greg McNamara will describe Our Fishing Northeast, a group founded to address controversies coming up in conversations on Facebook and other social media.

Our group was created in light of an ongoing trend of poor etiquette by social media-active fisherman within poorly managed online fishing related pages. Here our goal is simple. We lead by example,” according to a pledge anglers must agree to in order to join the group.


With trout fishing on hold due to high temperatures on low water, we’ll revisit our talk with author, artist and fly tyer Jay “Fishy” Fullum in an interview recorded at last fall’s Art of the Angler, sponsored by the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum. Fishy talks about his career, and demonstrates a pattern made with a common, often overlooked, item found in many kitchens.

There will be no show on Thursday, Sept. 1. It’s a good time to catch up on the archives by clicking shows, then Yankee Fisherman, at HAN.Network. Live shows return Thursday, Sept. 8.

Yankee Fisherman, presented by The Dock Shop, airs Thursdays at 1 p.m. on the HAN Network. Previous episodes can be watched on demand or listened to as a podcast.

Yankee Fisherman is hosted by John Kovach, editorial director, host and announcer for the HAN Network. A native of New Jersey, Kovach has fished since his father first took him out as a child. Kovach fishes fresh and salt water, ties flies, dabbles in lure making and promotes conservation, including a leadership role in the Connecticut Council of Trout Unlimited.
