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

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.  […]

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, […]

Snake River Net Co. Nets

September 26, 2014

One of the hottest and almost necessary items to have on the river this day and age is a quality fishing net. When I was a kid my grandpa would buy nets from the local western tack store that were big enough to land a king salmon and were made of that spun plastic-thread like […]

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 […]

Chest Pack, Sling, Vest, Hip Pack? What do you use and why?

September 8, 2014

So, I have gone through many iterations of my wearable gear. I started with a backpack, not a fishing backpack, but a snowboarding one. This proved to be a little, how you say, not effective. It wasn’t long until I was sporting a vest. Honestly, the vest was pretty much everything I needed. I had […]
