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 […]

Just Bead It

September 12, 2014

  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 […]

When I was a young lad and would visit my grandpa after he returned from his fishing trips and I would ask the age old question: “Did you catch any?” His responses were usually somewhere along the line of: “Do dogs bark?” “Do ducks have a water tight butt?” “Do bears shi….” Ok he never […]

The day starts off with me just knowing that at some point in time, I have to get my lawn mowed.  So what does a guy do, when Braxton texts and says, “I really wanna fish tonight.”  Well, you do the crappiest, fastest job of mowing that your lawn has ever seen.  Seriously, I went so […]

Ok,to be perfectly honest, I don’t remember too many dreams, but last night I dreamt I was fishing my spot on the South Fork, and was being hunted by two different pairs of Tigers. Literally. Idaho tigers. One of which was totally white, Siegfried and Roy style, so it was particularly intense.  Lots of tall […]

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 […]

My name is Ben, I’m 38 years old and I’m a fly fisherman. I would like to share a story that started this addiction. I grew up on a farm 9 miles east of Ashton, Idaho. Within a few miles in all directions I had world class fly fishing water. Bitch Creek, the Teton River, […]

Fly Fishing Idaho I love fly fishing Idaho this time of year.  The water levels are great.  Runoff has stopped and the weather is super nice.  The fact that the days are longer than they ever will be for the rest of the year makes fishing really early or really late possible as well. Well, […]

Fly Fishing Idaho Matt Haley from Cabelas made the long trip from Sidney, Nebraska to Southeast Idaho to do some fly fishing in Idaho.   I was able to spend a day on the South Fork of the Snake River and we got into some good fish.  I was pretty jealous because they continued fly fishing […]

On your trip this year our first day on the South Fork the Snake River was one of the best days we had. Travis started the day catching big cutts at the ponds in Teton Springs and then we had a PMD hatch on the river that was epic and provided us hours of great […]

This week Aaron “Chubbs” Peterson got his mug on Moldy Chum‘s site with the honor of one of the June Slabs of the Month.  No joke this fish was HUGE, one of the biggest fish ever caught in the 7 years of our Frenzy trip.
