Fly Fishing Idaho At some point in an angler’s journey, he/she pursues that trophy fish(es).  To some it might be a very large fish that is awed by many fellow fisherman.  To others, it might be the challenging specie that is difficult to convince to partake of your fly.  Whatever your trophy is, we all […]

Nothing says fly fishing like outlet malls, highways and gawkers.  But that is the case on some parts of the Blue River. Located just 60 miles west of Denver, you can be out your door and into gold metal water within an hour. Flowing north out of Breckenridge this undulating river takes you on a […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.  […]

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 […]

I’ve been contributing to the Frenzy blog for the past few weeks and have never written anything about who I am or my relationship with fly fishing. I figured it would be good to somewhat know the person behind the words you are reading when I post about once a week. Plus the trips to […]

  One thing that could be said about fisherman is we like to tell tall tales or “Fish Stories.” As the person telling the story and trying to convince someone that the 32 inch brown trout that you had on your size #26 BWO  and was only landed after he took you to your backing […]
