2014 Skeena Update- By Lani Waller

Northern British Columbia’s famous Skeena steelhead season served up a mixed bag this year- sometime superb, and sometimes disappointing. It’s always been this way and it always will be. This is mostly due to the fact that the fall run of trophy steelhead on rivers such as the Babine, Morice, Bulkely, Kispiox, Copper, Sus- Tut and others occurs at a time when the weather is changeable and unpredictable. The fish are always there, but when conditions are bad, so is the fishing. Usually…

A New Zealand Plan by Cathy and Barry Beck

Five months seems like an eternity right now but in reality I know it will go fast. You see it’s October here in the mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania and in five months time I hope to be in a clear New Zealand river stalking a South Island brown trout. February is my favorite month to be in New Zealand, although I am perfectly happy to be there regardless of the season.

Because of this, one fly line will not cover all trout food source presentation techniques.

Paying Homage to the Bighorn - by Barry Beck

Paying Homage to the Bighorn

Most of us have a favorite river or a piece of fly water that we know intimately, we know the hatches, its moods, riffles, and runs, pools and flats. Because we hold it in such high esteem we almost never have a bad day fishing it. Be it high water, low water, temperatures too warm or too cold. We bear with it because it’s part of our love affair with the river and on the other hand, we know it can also be perfect with rising fish that willingly take our offerings. In the end it’s all part of the game. Continue reading
