    Larry Dahlberg's Bass and Panfish DVD is the best non-trout beginner's DVD I've seen. He covers everything from knot-tying to casting to tying basic flies. You might be able to find a copy on Ebay.

    A local guide told me the same thing. He went electroshocking with the DNR and was amazed at how many fish turned up. He said it was the most humbling day of his life.

    I had every issue, but I tossed them a long time ago -- just had too many mags lying around.
