Fly Fishing Idaho There is no denying that us frenziers like to throw some meat in the fall in search of nice browns.  We venture out as much as time permits in hopes to get those turns, looks, or bumps that  get the adrenaline pumping.  Few things get me more excited out on the river […]

Limp Lines, and Someone Else’s Feet

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 […]

Carp is the New Black

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 […]

The ‘Not So’ Trophy Fish

April 12, 2015

0 Comments

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 […]

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 […]

1000 words? (Guest Blogger – Photographer Tyler Shearer)

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 […]

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

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 […]

2014 was the year of the Brown Trout… (for me anyway)

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 […]

It’s OK to Nymph.

Fly Fishing Idaho My first in depth experience with fly fishing was on the Provo River in Utah.  We used to Nymph fish the crap out of that place (along with most other fly fisherman in that area).  And, we pulled some great fish out of that river nymphing. Nymph fly fishing is how I […]

Last of the Fall Fishing

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.  […]

Fly Fishing Idaho There are few things that are more exciting to me than chucking big meat to fall Browns!   And, since the weather has been so cooperative this fall season I’ve been able to get out more than usual. Littlefield talked about the fall trip we took just recently in his last post.  That […]

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 […]

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 […]

So, I think that its fairly obvious that everyone loves Summer.  I mean seriously, Summer is so great for fishing and I look forward to the greatness that is, Dry Fly Action.  Since summer is/has slipped away there is something that can still put a smile on our faces, and that is Fall Streamer Fishing.

    Many of you, I am sure, have fished the Teton River, or have definitely thought about it. Why? Because it is awesome, that is why. There is something very interesting about this river. The cutthroat in the canyon section are covered, and I mean covered in these tiny little spots. For those that […]

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 […]

Here’s a little story I gots to tell about three bad brothers you know so well… it started way back in history with Bender, Royce, and JLit, that’s me.  (sorry for the obvious plagiarism). With the skiff loaded up at a perky 4 am, the three of us headed out for a little adventure with one goal […]

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 […]
