Picking the Right Fly

The first step in picking the right fly, is having it in your fly box. There’s nothing more frustrating than watching a 20″+ brute rising to a hatch, only to find out you don’t have the right fly in your box. Luckily we can help with the Match the Hatch subscription. We will send you […]

Spring Dry Fly Action

The temperature is rising and the bugs (and trout) are starting to get active. Spring is one of the best times of the year for fly fishermen.

Joe’s Tip of the Week, Safe Wading

Winter Trout Fishing

  For me, winter time fishing is a time of solitude. There are fewer fishermen pressuring the trout, but the trout are still there and still feeding. As I get older, this is the time of year I look forward to most. I can hit well known rivers with no one in sight instead of […]

Fall is a wonderful time of year. The temperature has dipped to chilly but bearable levels, the leaves are turning, college football has started, and the brown trout fishing is phenomenal. Most people are aware of steelhead and salmon runs, but you probably didn’t know brown trout make a fall spawning run as well. Large […]
