VIDEO OF THE WEEK

Each week ODWC's Fishing Coordinator Skylar St.Yves will share one of his favorite instructional fishing videos from passionate anglers across North America. This week's video is courtesy of Fly Fishing & Dreams and addresses how to tie a very important connector knot, the Double Uni Knot. This knot is great for anglers who want to attach a monofilament or fluorocarbon leader to braided line or put backing line on a reel.


CORKBOARD

Each week ODWC's Fishing Coordinator Skylar St.Yves will share his three favorite photos from the past week's The Dock submissions. Make sure to share your proud fish catches with us!
