Took a day off work…

I think about fly fishing all the time. And so on my day off work, I found myself driving to Shenandoah NP to chase more wild brookies. Image: http://fishing-news.info/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/took-a-day-off-work.jpg …

Bit of a surprise

Fishing one of Maine’s popular rivers today, I caught this. Image: http://fishing-news.info/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/bit-of-a-surprise.jpg It’s a lake trout (‘togue’ in Maine-speak), about 14-15″. At first I thought it was a salmon because of the silvery flash…

Yellowstone Pattern Suggestions

I’m going to go to Yellowstone for a week in June. I can’t believe I’ve never been!!! I know it’s a long way off but I want to start tying what I need over the course of the winter. Apart from the usual assortment of Adams, zebra midges, hare’s ears, and the usual western patterns, is there…

Pulaski in December/Janruary

Heading up to the Salmon River for the first time next month or the following and am curious what type of leaders are typically used? I know the fish can be stubborn so sometimes light tippet is needed but I have read mixed things about tapered vs. non tapered. The rod is going to be an 11′ 7wt…

Benefits of Fly Fishing for Steelhead

Frozen Toes

Braved the cold today and attempted to fish. After about an hour or so, the toes on my left foot felt like they were about to fall off. I figured I must have gotten a leak in the waders or bootie. Got so bad I nearly called it quits early. When I did head back to the car (completely skunked by the…
