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 […]

Carp is the New Black

April 27, 2015

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 […]

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 […]

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.  […]

Winter Fishing

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 […]

Call it JuJu, Mojo, karma, or luck…

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, […]

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.

One of the hottest and almost necessary items to have on the river this day and age is a quality fishing net. When I was a kid my grandpa would buy nets from the local western tack store that were big enough to land a king salmon and were made of that spun plastic-thread like […]

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 […]
