    How to Tie Boating Knots : How to Tie A Water Bowline Knot

    October 19, 2019

    Hi my name is Dan and I’m here with Expert
    Village. Today I’m going to show you how to tie the water bowline. The water bowline is
    the secret variation of the original bowline it is useful when pulling one boat behind
    another boat and it is able to take jarring motions and not become loose. Tie two opposing
    loops cross them over and under one another. Take your working end feed up through both
    of the loops, around and behind the none working end of your rope and follow the line through.
    What you have now is the bowline with a loop in it. So if you are towing a boat and it
    is pulling on the road with a line most of the force is being transfer through this loop
    and it would not come untie. Putting very little strain on the bowline on itself. So
    that is a water bowline.

    International Competitors Angle for Glory at World Fly Fishing Championships in San Francisco

    October 19, 2019

    (applause) – [Announcer] Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Golden Gate
    Angling & Casting Club for the 16th annual
    Jimmy Green Spey-O-Rama. – Spey Casting originated on
    the Spey river in Scotland because of limited space behind you, of trees and bushes and whatnot, and having to make a
    long cast with a fly rod. So they came up with a
    way of anchoring the line in the water and then being
    able to make a long cast. – [Announcer] Cast the
    break, single, score. (crowd cheering) One zero eight. – Spey-O-Rama started 16 years ago and has drawn an international field. You’ve got people from all over the world and you’ve seen year after year. It’s a great fun competition to be in. (upbeat music) (announcer speaking) (crowd cheering) (crowd applauding) – [Announcer] One two four. – It’s one of the neatest
    parts about being here, everybody wants the best for each other, even amongst the competitors
    in the same field. And because it’s a lot of the same people who come back every year, it is like a family. It is a really good community. – [Announcer] Cast number
    seven, left single scoring. – The single cast is, basically you bring it back over your shoulder and then
    cast it off that way. A snake roll, start
    with the line out here, bring it out in front of
    you, bring it behind you and then launch it forward. – [Announcer] Cast
    number nine, right snake. (crowd cheering) – A lot of people say it’s
    really quite meditative. You sort of cast, swing,
    step, cast, swing, step and you do get into a really calm mindset. – To get everything right, you gotta be in the proper
    position, the proper movements and the proper application of power. When you get it right,
    it’s absolutely wonderful. I mean things just take and launch. – [Announcer] Right cast, right snake. (crowd cheering) – [Announcer] One two three. (upbeat music)

    Why Doesn’t Winter Kill All The Fish And Plants?

    October 19, 2019

    Hey there and welcome to Life Noggin, I’m lucky enough to live in cyberspace,
    where the circuits are toasty and you can always get a warm cup of hot chocolate from
    your loving Motherboard. But many of my human friends know these times
    as that chilly season called Winter. You may be able to bundle up in sweaters and
    roast marshmallows around the fireplace, but what happens to plants and fish during these
    cold months? Well, luckily for our aquatic friends, when
    the temperature outside falls below the freezing point of water, only the top layers of lakes
    or rivers typically freeze. Under the frozen layer, the water remains
    in its liquid state and oxygen is trapped below the ice. This gives fish the environment to survive,
    but the colder waters and other conditions — like less access to food — cause life
    below the ice to slow down. Certain species like cod and flatfish have
    a reduced metabolic rate in these times and produce molecules in their bodily fluids that
    lower their freezing point so they don’t freeze. What about plants? Just like how you prepare for winter by stocking
    up on warmer clothes and pumpkin spice lattes, plants also take steps to prepare for the
    coming cold. You know when you see the leaves changing
    color in Autumn and then falling off? That’s actually part of a process known
    as abscission, where most deciduous trees shed their leaves after their colors change
    from a loss of chlorophyll, the chemical that’s involved in photosynthesis. With the lack of water and sunlight in the
    winter months, there’s less photosynthesis and eventually less chlorophyll, allowing
    the leaves’ other colors to appear. But how do plants know that winter is coming? A certain Game of Thrones character must have
    told them, right? Surely you’d warn the plants when you’re
    played by Sean /Bean/. All joking aside, plants appear to have a
    “stress memory”, in that they have the ability to respond more efficiently to a stressor
    like cold the second time that it’s introduced. Many different environmental stressors have
    been shown to alter the chromatin and epigenetic marks of plants, providing evidence within
    their chromosomes that they do indeed have memories of stress. This is not downright proof that this /must/
    be true, but it does strongly support the theory of plant’s stress memory. So once plants are all set up for winter,
    how do they survive? Well, there is one big thing that the salads
    of the world have to worry about more than our forks; they need to protect their cells
    from damaging ice crystals, especially ones that would form inside the cells themselves. Many plants guard against this by using a
    defensive dehydration mechanism. The plants move water out of the cells and
    into the area /between/ the cells. Intracellular ice formation is generally considered
    lethal for plants, but ice /outside/ the cell has the potential to be survived. This is largely due to the cell wall of a
    plant’s cell making it stronger than our puny animal cells. Some trees also add there own delicious twist
    to fight winter’s freezing. The fluid inside the tree’s cell that used
    to be mainly water is changed to contain far more sugars after dehydration. This sugary sap gives the cells a lower freezing
    point, further protecting them from Jack Frost’s touch. So what are you doing to help survive the
    chills of winter? Let me know in the comments below! Make sure you come back every Monday for a
    brand new video. As always, I’m Blocko and this has been
    Life Noggin. Don’t forget to keep on thinking!

    Atlantic Billfish and Swordfish: Best Fishing Practices

    October 19, 2019

    Atlantic Billfish and Swordfish: Best Fishing Practices I’m Lieutenant Wynn Carney with NOAA’s Office of Law Enforcement. Billfish such as swordfish, marlin, and sailfish are some of the most coveted fish in the ocean. They give anglers a great fight, but, many offshore anglers are unaware that removing a billfish from the water can hurt the billfish and cause it to die. It’s illegal to take an Atlantic billfish out of the water, unless it’s going to be retained. Just a few minutes of taking the billfish out of the water can severely reduce the chances of the billfish survival, even if it’s just for a photograph. When billfishing, here are a few things to remember: reduce fight time by using heavier tackle; use circle hooks, which are less likely to hook a billfish in the throat or gut; keep the fish in the water while measuring the fish and removing the hook. You could rig a measuring device such as marking the gunwale of the boat or making a pole and putting marks on the pole, that you could put in the water to measure the fish. If you can’t safely remove the hook, you want to cut the line as close to the hook as you can. Never gaff the fish in the body. To help revive the fish, slowly tow it in the water for a few minutes, until its color comes back. Make sure you keep the water flowing over the gills. It will make sure the fish gets oxygen. Learning how to release the billfish healthy and unharmed will ensure that billfish will be around for future generations. If you are going to retain your billfish, please report it to NOAA Fisheries within 24 hours. [music] Billfish and Swordfish – Best Fishing Practices 1. Never take out of the water. 2. Reduce fight time – use heavy tackle. 3. Keep the fish in the water while measuring, removing hook. 3. Use barbless circle hooks. 4. Cut line close to hook if you cannot remove it. 5. Never gaff the body. 6. Revive fish before releasing. 7. Keeping it? Report it within 24 hours to NOAA Fisheries. Credits

    Fishing Big Jungle Jacks on foot Andysfishing Andy’s Fish Video EP.266

    October 19, 2019

    Hi everyone, Andy here. And I’m back in the jungle. It’s warming up and I haven’t been in for a long time. I will try to fish a spot where I caught my biggest Barramundi. I have camped the night and I think it’s just after 7am. Lets see if we can catch some Barramundi or Mangrove Jack. It can be hard to get down to the water. Keep looking and you will find a spot. I’m fishing with the Shakesphere 5pc travel rod and Sienna 1000 reel. Yes, oh, dropped him. Try again. I started fishing with a Lively Lure, but now, Ive gone to a Zman grub.
    I started fishing with a Lively Lure, but now, Ive gone to a Zman grub. With a weedless worm hook. It is very shallow and lots of weed, hard to see anything. This is my go to style of lure in this situation. It’s very shallow. It will be a bit tough today. Yes, I just got taken. Oh, yes. I will have to go over there. He has taken me a long way into that snag. It could be a Barramundi or Mangrove Jack. I didn’t quite expect that. I knew they would be here some place. It’s over knee deep in here. Lets see if we can find that fish, he is stuck now. Yep, he is still there. Where does the line come out… I’ll hand line him in. He is wrapped around everything. That’s one. Oh, he is still on there. Pass the rod under the tree. He is still going, still pulling. Under this one. Where from here? He as gone under everything! Ok, he is out. It is a nice Mangrove Jack. Right back under my feet. Into the snag. Rod under another tree. He is around my foot. Stick my hand in there. There he is, nice. Look at that Mangrove Jack. Wow look at that. He is almost 50cm long. No wonder he got me into the tree. Lets see. 51cm long even. Beautiful fish.
    51cm long even. Beautiful fish. A beautiful Mangrove Snapper. This is the biggest I have caught in the jungle at 51cm long. Hard going and low water, but an amazing fish. He is right to go, off you go. Beautiful. I’m just fishing this hole, and this is a natural disaster… The cane toad is a very bad pest here. I will now help the environment! Get them both out. Find some nice big rocks. To dispatch them. I was just fumbling around.. Dealing with the toads and… And there is a Barramundi sitting right there. You might see it, I can. Drop my lure in front of him. They haven’t been bitting hard today. Yep, got him! That is my kind of fishing. Ahh, love it, love it! Only a small fish, but sight cast, that is cool. So much fun. And a really golden colour too. That makes my day. The Jack was cool, but that was special. Look at the colour on this fish. Beautiful colours, look at that. He will be about 52cm long. They aren’t as heavy fish as a Jack or Snapper. But they grow very quick and fast. The Zman worked. Oh, hello, look at this fish. Release this fish very gently. Oh, no, I just scared the big fish. Damn!
    Oh, no, I just scared the big fish. Damn! I will fish here a bit longer now. I think he heard the other fish. Oh, here is another Jack! Right neat him. Caught him straight away, how good is this! Aww, no need to stop filming, cool. Nice, he is out. Lets see if the big Barra comes back. When I knelt down I scared the big Barra. We will fish here a bit longer, I like this spot. That is so cool, Sight cast Barramundi and Sight cast Mangrove Jack. The other Barramundi was huge, around 80cm long. For a spot this small, that is very good. Come on in, and another good fish. He is around the 50cm again. Look at that! He is about 47cm long. Tine to let Mr Jack go. Yep, no good bye, just gone. Wow that was cool, very cool. Here’s todays tip. The wind has come up and it’s a bit after lunch. It feels like the fish are not going to eat any more. When you think you should stop fishing… That’s the time to stop fishing. I have fished on many times and not caught anything. Time to go home.
