TYE With A PRO: Crappie Champ Kyle Schoenherr

TYE With A PRO: Crappie Champ Kyle Schoenherr

We at TYEPRO don’t consider ourselves “one-fish” anglers, but you might not realize it based on our ‘TYE With A PRO’ interview series. Last month we spoke with Russ Bailey, who has made a name for himself as a professional crappie fisherman and as host on the crappie-centric Brushpile Fishing program. Prior to that we spoke with Clyde “The Crappie Psychic” Folse (you may be able to guess what his specialty is). We figured we’d round out the trio and speak to one more crappie expert before we look at other species. And Kyle Schoenherr knows crappie. Enough that he...

We're Hooked: The Fish Grip Saves You Some Pain...Literally

We're Hooked: The Fish Grip Saves You Some Pain...Literally

We may not necessarily be the most fish-friendly of blogs—after all, recent guest star Russ Bailey has a segment dedicated to cooking crappie, his catch of choice. That said, we’re 100 percent for anybody who has a method in mind for keeping “catch-and-release” fishing as gentle on the prize as possible. One of these individuals is Tucker Hoge and the rest of the team behind The Fish Grip, a tool designed to make the handling of a freshly-caught fish less stressful to both the angler and the angled. We decided to review The Fish Grip to see what was going...

Tom's Letter: The Fishing Scene in Ireland... And All Over

Tom's Letter: The Fishing Scene in Ireland... And All Over

I live near Dublin, OH...but I was fortunate enough last month to travel out to the original Dublin...in Ireland. The occasion was my son’s wedding, and I was thrilled that the event was held in such a beautiful location. That said, I’ve taken a bit of guff from two groups of friends regarding the things I wasn’t able to do, because of previous commitments and preparations for the big event. One is the fabulous links golf scene that spreads across the entirety of the United Kingdom (I didn’t get to embarrass myself in either hurricane-strength winds or mile-deep bunkers). The...

TYE with The PROs: Russ Bailey of 'BrushPile Fishing'

TYE with The PROs: Russ Bailey of 'BrushPile Fishing'

Last month we introduced to you the Crappie Psychic and now we’re happy to shine some light on Russ Bailey, an angler who has a rod named after him...titled the “Crappie Wizard.” Let’s just say we know quite a few folks who have a somewhat supernatural ability to catch crappie. Bailey is better known for his broadcast skills than his magic tricks. He’s been the host of NKT.tv’s BrushPile Fishing since 2014 (we like the show so much, we're proud to be one of the sponsors!) and hosted Midwest Crappie for seven years before that. What makes for a good fishing...

Don't Be A 'Square': Try An Improved Clinch Knot!

Don't Be A 'Square': Try An Improved Clinch Knot!

I posted a demonstration a few months ago featuring a video on how to tie an improved clinch knot, both with and without a TYEPRO tool. I’m sure that quite a few people watched the video, nodded, and then continued using whatever they had been doing already. And that’s OK: The intention of these advice posts is simply to encourage and assist people who are just getting started in the fishing hobby. If a square knot or a granny knot are what you can do right now, then keep at it until you feel comfortable learning a new technique. But...
