|Powers Fly Fishing||
Brings a tear to my eye. Nature can heal itself even after 100 years. Lets keep those dams coming down. Stealhead are above the old dam looking for good spots to spawn!
When viewing a discussion of the thawing of tensions in the Korean peninsula I was drawn to search for info on Fishing in North Korea. I remember a BBC report on a bicycle tour of the north. Are fly fishing tours far off? I found a cool article MidCurrent by a guide in korea and a nice website about cherry trout. The address is the extremely un ironic http://cherrytrout.com/ . The site turned out to be much more than just a site on cherry trout. It was more like a fly fishing guide to fishing in Korea. I imagine them to to be 1/4 size Frying Pan footballs. They seem to be similar so Rainbows so I looked them up. They are in fact in the Oncorhynchus genus. There doesn't seem to be too much info out there. I fond some links to some articles about how Kim Jong Il liked to fly fish and some brief postings on message boards in English and in french. My fav mb posting was a nice guy posting two pix he took while fishing in Korea. Some Internet hero commented that it looked like Pennsylvania. Thanks genius. Check out the links and let me know what you think. Does anyone have more info on fishing in Korea?
Below you will find a link to an article in MidCurrent writen by James Card on fly fishing around the DMZ. His description of land mines getting washed down strewam durring high rain times beings the concept of a difficult wade to a new level. I have also linked James Card's website. I guess this goes to show that ytou can find fly fisherman anywhere.
Here is a link to an interview James Card did for Chicargo public Radio on his excursions into the DMZ
Fly tying, fly fishing and all aspects of fly culture.
