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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Today I woke up to very frosty ground and at my job, which is mainly outdoors, and throughout the day I never seemed to warm up in the crisp Idaho air. It got me thinking about fishy goals I have yet to accomplish for 2014 and how it is soon time to transition into winter […]

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, […]

  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 […]

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 […]
