When you have an itch you need to scratch

January 27, 2009

Provo River, Videos

Another video Survivorman style for the Fly Fishing Frenzy collection.

I work for myself and during the week I find myself working out of my house or my office I also crash at friends office’s around the area, really where ever I can get an internet connection I can work.  On this day I was working out of Sean Whalen’s office, a close friend of mine, which is near the mouth of Provo Canyon.  Sean is only a few steps away from being an official Frenzier and as a mater of fact has been featured on a few posts, Huntington Creek Utah and Provo River Caddis Hatch.  I had put all my fishing stuff in the car that morning and wanted to hit the Provo River for a few minutes during the day.  Now, yes because I work for myself I can take lunch anytime but for the purpose of the post I wanted to show and explain how close it is for anyone working around the Utah County area to get on the river during lunch time and enjoy a short few minutes fishing.  As you will see from the video it was snowing, windy and cold so I imagine that not many people would want to hit the river on days like this but still for us crazy fisherman when you have the itch you need to scratch.  Enjoy!!!

    Dude sweet vid! You guys (meaning you and your two frozen hands) look like you had a blast playing in the freezing snowy, wndy weather…I wish it was March already. I spent 5 hours last Sunday tying up a whole fly box (150 flies) of BWO’s in prep for this spring… I can’t wait to see fish rising all over the river. It is by far one of the coolest hatches of the year. Hoss I also found some of that colored hot glue. I think I got the right color I’ll let ya know

    I know I cant wait either. I have been wanting to fish to rising trout for a while and ever time I hit the river thinking it is a good day for it i never see anything.

    Brent, fishing to rising fish has been awesome as of late, there are a few places that day in and day out the fish are up rising to midges, sometimes it is silly fishing and sometimes pretty technical, its fun to figure them out and hook up, most of the times clusters work, if not then little cdc emergers. i get to scratch my itch to get up and fish 2 or 3 times a week for a few hours, when you have time to go let me know and i will show you the pods of fish that have been rising.
