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 […]

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.  […]

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, […]

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 […]

A weird phenomenon has been taking place on my last few trips out fishing. Let me explain. A couple weeks ago Bent, Littlefield and I decided to make an early Saturday morning river session in search for some tug. It was one of those trips where we really didnt know where we were going to […]

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 […]

River Report: Went fishing on New Years Day with Julian Riley and Emily Blankenship.  We met up on the Middle Provo at around 1130.  When we got there it was about 17 degrees, which isn’t to bad but what made it bearable is that there was no breeze and the sun was out for the […]
