Fly Fishing Idaho There is no denying that us frenziers like to throw some meat in the fall in search of nice browns.  We venture out as much as time permits in hopes to get those turns, looks, or bumps that  get the adrenaline pumping.  Few things get me more excited out on the river […]

Hatchapalooza on the Hank

June 8, 2015

5 Comments

So, here’s a quick question?  How many bugs hatch on the Henry’s Fork during a hatchapalooza?     Answer:  All of em. Braxton and I decided to go out and check out some spots.  After I convinced him to not fish the Salmon Flies on Fall River, we decided to go hit the Hank.  Nothing […]

so, I am totally convinced.  granted we have had a pretty unseasonably warm winter, nymphing has always been the go to.  I haven’t nymphed in weeks, not that there’s anything wrong with that. #Seinfeld  We, over at the fly shop Anglers Anonymous, have had a stalwart employee since day 1 – we call him Tobes.  The […]

Winter Streamers… yes

January 30, 2015

Ok, so I was reading an article the other day that came up on my feed on facebook and for the life of me I cannot find it to reference it but these guys had a great point.  Nymphing is obviously the most effective was to fish in the winter, maybe all year, but if […]

2014 was the year of the Brown Trout… (for me anyway)

January 6, 2015

OK, so I am one of those lucky guys that gets to fish, a lot.  I know I am lucky, I do not argue that.  I have to say I probably got close to if not over 100 outings in this last year.  With all of that fishing, I have to say, that I caught more […]

Last of the Fall Fishing

Sometimes in SE Idaho it snows in July… (it has happened before)  sometimes it doesn’t snow until January. (Fingers Crossed).  This year was a little weird.  We were having great fall fishing and then all of a sudden, boom 6 inches of snow.  Then we had a week of below freezing weather, highs of 28.  […]

The Trip that Never Was…. Kind Of

WARNING: LONG READ AHEAD BUT ITS WORTH IT Ok, when Chubbs, Bender and I get together to go fishing, things get rowdy, there is no doubt about that, but this trip was ridiculous.  Last year we made a trek into Yellowstone to Canoe our way into some prime fly fishing, and we couldn’t wait to […]

Call it JuJu, Mojo, karma, or luck…

Sometimes you go out fishing and you just don’t have it.  Sometimes, you really have it.  There’s a young fisher dude around these parts whose nickname is now simply… The Ju.  Not because his beard makes him look like he follows Hasidic Judaism, but because he, more times that not has the JUJU.  For some, […]

Ditch Fishing

This spring I was sent a photo of my cousin pictured with a 22 inch brown trout monster. He isn’t much of a fisherman himself so it was quite a fish for him to be hookin’ into. I eagerly asked him where he caught it: “The dry bed behind my house.” he responded. He lives […]

So, I think that its fairly obvious that everyone loves Summer.  I mean seriously, Summer is so great for fishing and I look forward to the greatness that is, Dry Fly Action.  Since summer is/has slipped away there is something that can still put a smile on our faces, and that is Fall Streamer Fishing.

Just Bead It

September 12, 2014

0 Comments

  Most of us hear about using a bead system when fishing in Alaska for salmon or fishing for steelhead but who uses beads as a “go-to rig” when fly fishing for trout? I have fished with glow bugs and have always done well fishing with that type of egg pattern but after talking to […]

Since my passion for fly fishing has grown and grown I have been crazy excited for my son to catch the fever and want to go fishing with me. I would say that his fever is still pretty tepid but its coming along. Every time I can get him to go out with me I […]

A weird phenomenon has been taking place on my last few trips out fishing. Let me explain. A couple weeks ago Bent, Littlefield and I decided to make an early Saturday morning river session in search for some tug. It was one of those trips where we really didnt know where we were going to […]

For those that fish the Henry’s Fork, you know that it can be tricky fishing.  These fish just seem to be smarter, with that being said, when you can get into them, they seem to be that much more rewarding.  We have had some crazy weather lately here in Southeast Idaho.  One of those random […]

Frenzy Blunders? You be the Judge…. watch this video

June 11, 2014

0 Comments

So, its been a while since we’ve posted any video footage, and this stuff was too good not to post.  I had been becoming a little prideful in my wading abilities lately, even discussing with the wife how it had been a long time since I had gone down in the river.  (foreshadowing intended). Anyway, […]

  So…it just so happens that Saturday morning LittleF, Chubbs and I decided to take a float down my new favorite piece of water on the Henry’s fork. It was 4 a.m. when they picked me up. I was ready, which I’m usually not. Once we arrived we loaded the boat with our bags and […]

I am assuming that the vast majority of our readers know what a salmon fly is….. here is a prime example of the big bugs that we love to chase.  This hatch comes and goes so fast and furious that most people do not get a chance to capitalize on the fish keying in on […]

The time had come.  Shoe goo couldn’t hold together the remnants of my Willy J’s anymore and I had to break down and buy some new boots.  After asking around to some trusted sources, the verdict was in, it was time that I owned some Korkers.  After some dubious research and mental anguish and turmoil […]

Rainbows and Renegades

I know I am not the only person that this has happened to.  I am taking someone out fishing and plan to just fish streamers while wading a very familiar area on the Henry’s Fork.  We had really good luck on the streamers, the water was a little off color so, the shiny sparkle minnow […]
