March 13, 2015

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 […]

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 […]

Last of the Fall Fishing

December 1, 2014

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 […]

There is this trip that a few of the fellow Frenziers have been planning for this fall season. It is a trip that is wild and includes a lot of fishing so naturally I wanted in and graciously was invited.  You will hear more about this trip later on this week so I wont indulge […]

Ditch Fishing

October 6, 2014

2 Comments

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Teaching the Next Generation – and by that I mean me and my boy went out fishing….

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 […]

Fishin’ Photo’s: Fly Fishermans Camera Set Up.

  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 […]

Don’t Mind If I Don’t

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 […]

Product Review: Patagonia Rio Gallegos Zip Front Waders

July 16, 2014

1 Comment

OK, so the waders that I had been sporting for the last 3 years finally gave up the ghost.  Which is pretty impressive thinking how much I fish, and how much water they were in.  They were William Joseph WST waders, and they just tapped out.  As much as I loved them, I figured it […]

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 […]

Chasing Salmon Fly Hatches While Avoiding Boat Hatches

May 28, 2014

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 […]

This year’s frenzy has come and gone now. We fished a lot of water and caught a lot of fish.  We caught Cutthroat, Grayling, Rainbows, Browns, Whitefish, and even a Sucker.  6 Species of fish within an hour?  That’s some fun stuff right there.  From Hebgen Lake Gulpers to small stream aggressive trout we had […]

I can try to take good pictures all I want, but when Shmeegs (that’s my wife Meegan’s nickname) is behind the lens, the composition, the angles, the colors… BOOM!!!  I am learning though, and plan to expound some of my newly gained knowledge on you poor saps. My wife shoots Nikon, and obviously not everyone […]
