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

Redfish (red drum) and spotted seatrout are closely related members of the Drum Family (Sciaenidae). Among flyfishers (and probably other anglers as well), redfish are arguably the most popular of all species that inhabit saltwater flats, and spotted seatrout probably aren’t ranked too far behind them.

Swingin’ for Kings: The Idiots gear guide for Spey fishing for Chinook Salmon
The mighty Chinook salmon or “King” as many refer to them, might be one of the most prized anadromous fish an angler can hook in fresh water. They also might be the most difficult. Diminishing runs and more angler pressure have made King Salmon all the more difficult to catch throughout the world. Destinations such as Alaska, BC, and Chile are now where anglers typically find larger populations of Kings willing to eat a swung fly. That’s not to say that it’s easy though. Countless hours can be spent fishing empty runs and then one stumbling upon a place where rolling fish are everywhere but will not grab your fly. There are also times when they are everywhere and crushing a large swung fly with abandon. Either way, it’s King fishing and nothing beats that adrenaline rush of a hard grab and line ripping off the reel!
