It's written by a couple guys from Iowa or Minnesota I think. The article is very informative and I learned a lot from it. They mainly fish rivers and I mainly fish lakes so all of the info. doesn't apply to me. The guys also wrote an 11 page article that they sent to the NAFC in a contest for best fishing tips. It's available on their website at fishingclub.com. If you are not a member you can sign up for a membership and then just cancel later, but that will giv eyou acces to this article.
