Tenkara Fishing
Body: 
Lawrence goes Tenkara fishing in some small mountain streams with avid fisherman and guide, Bill Whitehair. Tenkara is an ancient Japanese fly fishing method that uses a light telescoping rod and no reel.  The  lightness of the rod enables the anglar to feel every movement of these small Brook trout and creates a unique sporting experience.  See why Tenkara is an easy, inexpensive and fun way to get into fly fishing.

Perch Fishing
Body:

My OJ – Beaver Pond Brookies
Body: 

One of the best places to fish for brook trout are beaver ponds. A good beaver pond can hold Vermont's favorite fish in numbers and sizes rarely seen in streams, and a hidden beaver pond teeming with plump, colorful brookies is a treasured discovery. We head out with John Mansfield and Mike Eramo, both of Grandville, VT to learn why they love fishing for beaver pond brookies.

Walleye Restoration
Body: 

It wasn’t that long ago that Lake Champlain was known for its fantastic walleye fishery. Whether it was overfishing or environmental impacts, the abundance of the number one game fish diminished tremendously during the 70’s. In 1984 the Lake Champlain Walleye Association was formed by a concerned group of anglers who had one goal in mind. And that was to bring back the walleye. Together with the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department the two organizations are making progress to restore the once famous walleye fishery back to its hey day.

Fishing for Chain Pickerel
Body: 

Chain pickerel just might be the most overlooked game fish in Vermont. But they’re beautiful fish, found in beautiful ponds. And on light tackle the toothy little predators are a blast to catch. We spend a day on Belvidere Pond with Ken Capsey, a passionate angler who is obsessed with catching chain pickerel, pike and muskie on the fly.
