July 22, 2015

There is a stretch of Highway that crosses the South Fork of the Snake, the Teton, the Henrys Fork and the Fall River. I would drive this highway daily on my way to work. At that point in my life I had no idea that blue ribbon fly-fishing waters surrounded me. I also didn’t know […]

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 […]

Ok, so there are a couple notorious fishermen here in SE Idaho that love to carp.  Having been invited out a couple times, I could just never make the scheduling work.  Bender and I kept seeing their pics and their stories and just decided, OK… We’re going. Shane, who happens to be one of the […]

It really is that time of year, when you can find fish eating everything.  Runoff hasn’t really hit, but the warm weather has brought bugs.  BE PREPARED with your flies when you go out, and be able to act fast.  This is the time of year where I start carrying two rods.  One setup for […]

There is something to be said about the power of an image that moves people. Sure we have heard it a million times a picture is worth a 1000 words, right? Well for me there is more to these pictures then meets the eye. Two years ago I never touched a camera, I had a […]

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.  […]

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 […]

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, […]

Product Review: Patagonia Rio Gallegos Zip Front Waders

July 16, 2014

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 […]
