The art of fishing 🎣 👏👏

How do you catch a fish without a fishing pole?

With your bear hands.

We’re here all week, folks. For bears, fishing styles are often learned behaviors. Some bears have mastered many, while others stick to the one that work best for them. At Brooks River in Alaska's Katmai National Park & Preserve, you can observe many types of fishing styles including:⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
🐻 The Stand and Wait: Bears stand on top the falls and wait for salmon to jump close enough to catch. Bears sometimes slip on the falls (usually when someone is looking) so they rarely shift position.⁣ Sometimes they misjudge and the fish hits the bear in the face. (Insert own metaphor for life)
⁣⁣⁣
🐻 The Sit and Wait: Similar to the first one but sitting. Bears sit underneath Brooks Falls in the plunge pool or “jacuzzi,” and wait for salmon to swim to them.
⁣⁣⁣
🐻 The Dash and Grab: Bears chase the fish and attempt to pin them to the river bottom with their paws. ⁣⁣Fast-food on the go!
⁣⁣⁣
🐻 The Snorkeler: Bears look for fish under the water while seeing who can make the most bubbles. ⁣⁣⁣

🐻 The Diver: Some bears avoid getting their ears wet, so diving is not for every bear. However there are some that will submerge themselves completely underwater to obtain food resources. You do what you got to do. ⁣
⁣⁣⁣
🐻 The Pirate: Arrgggg! It’s Cap’n Bruin Brownbeard the Hungry! Pirating bears plunder already caught fish from other bears. ⁣Keep an eye on the horizon. Avast ye scurvy bear! I’ve come for the fishes!
⁣⁣⁣
🐻 The Sharer: Bears do not usually share food with others (bearing is NOT sharing), but some will share the spoils. (Not the Cap’n) This interaction occurs between bears that are highly tolerant of each other. ⁣BFFs (bear fish friends!)

🐻 The Belly Flop: A big splash requires big bear air, as the bear springs up out of the water or launches off the side to take a fish by surprise. This can be extremely successful or, well, a flop.

A couple of great casting clinics this week! These ladies are 🎣🤩🌻

03/11/2023

Thanks, Renee Spears Abundology, for featuring us on the podcast. What a great time talking all about fly fishing and our mission to help empower women in the outdoors! 🎣🤩🤍

I've been obsessed with fly fishing since I moved to Bozeman. Loved talking about fishing with Sue on this podcast.

Mindfulness and fly fishing go hand in hand. When you're fly fishing, you enter into a state that resembles meditation allowing you to be fully present. In this podcast, Fishing Guide Sue Kerver shares how fly fishing benefits the mind, body, and soul. Sue empowers women by teaching them to fly fish which builds confidence through self-mastery and connection.

Fly fishing is a deeply meaningful and spiritual activity. Spending some "me time" in nature helps you gain perspective on life and improves your ability to handle stress. Because fly fishing requires you to be highly focused, you are much less likely to worry or think about anything that might be stressing you out.

Listen at https://abundology.podbean.com/e/254-fly-fishing-and-mindfulness-with-sue-kerver/

Sue Kerver has long held a passion for service and helping others. As an avid fly fisherwoman, an outdoor enthusiast, and a Coast Guard licensed Captain, Sue is on a mission to use her knowledge and personal experiences to help women become confident in the outdoor space.

In 2020, Sue attended Sweetwater Guide School in Montana and, a year later, moved to Bozeman where she obtained her Montana State fly fishing guide license.

With an emphasis on fly fishing, Sue founded Two Gals and a Boat with the goal of educating, encouraging, and empowering women through both classroom training and hands-on, skill-building opportunities.

She spent twelve years on active duty in the United States Coast Guard. Prior to joining the Coast Guard, Sue served for two years in the Peace Corps and taught English and Sustainable Development in Areka, Ethiopia.

On this , we celebrate another one of our AMAZING grads! Here’s what Renee had to say about her experience learning to fly fish through the Two Gals program:

“Learning to fly fish with Sue was the highlight of my year. I didn’t know anything about fly fishing when we started and now I can confidently fish anywhere. The classes were fun and I especially loved learning with the other cool women. I highly recommend Two Gals and a Boat!”

Check out what one past participant had to say about her Two Gals experience:

“I signed up for these fundamental fly fishing classes. My goal was to learn about fly fishing and make new friends with other women anglers. I accomplished both thanks to Sue’s fly fishing knowledge. She made the classes not only informative but also fun! The things I learned were very relevant to fly fishing on my own. I learned about proper fishing gear, knot tying, how to read the water, and what flies to fish with. If you’re looking to learn about fly fishing and meet other women anglers, I highly recommend signing up now!” - Donna A.

Check out these important tips which will help stop the spread of aquatic invasive species!!

Protect your boat AND our waterways! Quagga and zebra mussels are among the most devastating aquatic species to invade North America and can be spread by boats, live wells, and even fishing gear! These mussels are a real-life horror story: http://ow.ly/vfXZ50N27f0

Prevent the spread by following these steps every time you leave the water:

CLEAN off visible aquatic plants, animals, and mud from all equipment before leaving water access - including hulls, interiors, and motors.

DRAIN motor, bilge, live wells, and other water-containing devices before leaving water access.

DRY everything for five days OR wipe with a towel.

DISPOSE of unwanted bait, fish parts, and packing materials in the trash; Never dump live fish or other organisms from one water body into another.

During our beginner’s fly fishing program, we talk about aquatic invasive species at least THREE different times throughout the program! Why bring it up so many times? Because considered conservation practices are THAT important to our rivers, fisheries and aquatic ecosystems! If you know what to do, you can be part of the solution!🎣
