Fly Fishing Report: November 2017

October seemed to come and go with the fury of a fall storm, its parting gift a blanket of withered yellow leaves lining the riverbanks. It’s nice to have some rain back in the equation, to witness the weekly ebbs and flows of current and feel the anticipation of fresh salmon pouring upriver as the […]

November Fly of the Month: The Jiggler

Jig style flies are nothing new and have taken the industry by storm over the last few years, from the Kilowatt steelhead pattern to the Balanced Leech and a host of old standbys being adapted to smaller versions of these oddly configured hooks.

Fly Fishing Report: October 2017

“The two best times to fish is when it’s rainin’ and when it ain’t.” ~ Patrick F. McManus Truer words have never been spoken as we sidle into the thick of fall. It’s nice to see some moisture back in the equation after a long dry summer. Looking at the extended forecast, we have more […]

October Fly of the Month: Pumpkin Spice Latte

Fly Fishing Report: September 2017

Northwestern Washington has felt more and more like living inside of a pressure cooker over the last several weeks. Sticky air, ruminating with fire smoke haze, sweaty asphalt and a strange looking sandal tan permanently emblazoned on my feet. I know it’s far worse elsewhere in the country and the world at large, but us […]

Fly Fishing Report: August 2017

Welcome to hot and smokey! With the post apocalyptic haze of BC’s wild fire smoke blanketing much of the area and temperatures approaching triple digits in parts of Puget Sound, we find ourselves seeking the refugee of a well-shaded mountain stream or early dawn tidal rip now more than ever. The fishing is always a […]

August Fly of the Month: Ross Lake Shiner

Ross Lake is a huge body of water, approximately 23 miles long extending from the northern Washington border to just inside Canada. The trout and char inhabiting this vast watershed are as wild as can be, having never been supplemented with a hatchery program. Ross, like a lot of high mountain impoundments is deep and […]
