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 […]

Winter Fishing

November 4, 2014


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 […]

The Trip that Never Was…. Kind Of

October 24, 2014


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 […]

There’s Amazing Water Around Us

August 29, 2014


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 dream of logs… am I the only one?

July 9, 2014


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 […]

Fat Rainbow Trout on the Provo River

I have fished the Lower Provo River my whole life and have caught many many fish on this section. I have seen a handful of colorful fat rainbow trout over the years but nothing like this fish. I hadn’t been fishing for a few weeks so Dave Hancey and I decided to take the afternoon […]

fly fishing year of the trout

Written by Chris Kurnik with Western Trout Wrangler Beginning around the end of January this year, there has been a change in the river. Big fish here on the Truckee River are no longer residing in the mysterious unfishable depths, but instead have migrated to more fishable waters, have been holding along runs in large quantities, […]

whites ranch sportsman paradise

I am headed to Whites Ranch Sportsman’s Paradise this week.  I fished it last year with my good friend BJ Chandler and had an unreal time landing fish after fish and some of them were huge rainbow trout.  The weather this go around will be a bit different but I don’t think it will effect these monsters.

Thank you Madison River

May 14, 2011


With our recent trip to Montana we spent a few days on the Madison River and we shot about an hour of Dave Hancey pulling out one fish after another.  At one point he casted 12 times and landed 7 fish. The Madison River is very special place to the Frenziers.  We have spent many […]

Good to be on the river

November 18, 2010


I hadn’t been on the water for a few weeks and I finally got out this week.  I hit a small stream where the rainbow trout spawn in the fall.  It is a great little place to fish.  Met Travis “Dr” Gillespie and we had a great afternoon.

I Must Brag

May 8, 2010

Winter Rainbows

January 22, 2009


I pose a question, why do I catch more Rainbow Trout in the winter? Now this just might be my experience and maybe due to where I fly fish the Provo River but the majority of the fish in catch in the winter months are Rainbow Trout compared to the opposite the during the other […]
