OUTDOOR COLUMN: Elkhart fishing pioneer passes away


GOSHEN — Salmon Seminar

    Captain Carl “Fuzzy Bear” Stopczynski will conduct a salmon fishing seminar at the Michiana Steelheaders meeting Wednesday at the DeAmici Club in Mishawaka.

    The program begins at 7:30 p.m. and is free to the public. Stopczynski will also cover small boat safety and marine electronics tips in his program.

    Stopczynski is one of the top salmon anglers on Lake Michigan and a member of the Garmin International Pro Staff. In addition to being a top competitor on the salmon tournament circuit, he operates Fuzzy Bear Charters.

Tie a fly

    Several area fly tiers will gather at the Elkhart Conservation Club March 23 for the annual Tie-A-Thon to benefit “Reel Recovery,” an organization for cancer-stricken men.

    The Tie-A-Thon’s goal this year is to surpass its previous all-time high of 13,300 flies donated to a fishing related charity.

    Reel Recovery was founded by a group of avid fly-fishers, inspired by their fishing buddy’s on-going battle with brain cancer. The organization provides men with an opportunity to share their stories, learn a new skill, and gain renewed hope as they confront their challenges. For more information, check out reelrecovery.org.

    Anyone can participate and you don’t have to attend the Tie-A-Thon. Simply pick one pattern to tie, buy a box of 100 hooks, the materials and begin tying.

    Fly patterns and sizes that are needed include Adams (14), Elk Hair Caddis (14-16), Dubbing/Hackle Ant (18-20), Griffith Gnat (20-22), Soft Hackle (14 -16), BWO RG Emerger (18-22), Caddis Nymph (16-18), Hare’s Ear (12-14), Pheasant Tail (14-16), Woolly Bugger (10), Mickey Finn (8), Clouser’s Minnow (8).

    The Tie-a-thon will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Attendees should reserve a spot for the event so lunch plans can be made. To learn more, visit sjrvff.com or contact Tim Scott timelscott@gmail.com or 574-538-1936. -30-
