Fishing Report: February 2016

January concluded with a thorough drenching that left most of our rivers high and muddy. Somewhere in there we found a few fishable days and with them plenty of bull trout and the odd obliging steelhead. Many of our North Sound steelhead rivers are now closed for the season, save for a few short open […]

Fly Pattern of the Month: February 2016

As a follow up to last month’s time consuming yet incredibly shrimpy Prawn Solo pattern, I thought I’d share a very straight forward, efficient and very effective everyday steelhead pattern that fills a box in my arsenal. The Simple Sucka is your typical egg-sucking variety of fly and covers a number of bases that I […]

Fishing Report: January 2016

As we slip into the new year, the weather remains frightfully cold and pleasantly sunny and the rivers have remained in shape for longer than their fair share of time.

Fly Pattern of the Month: January 2016

I have been tying some variation of this wonderful prawn pattern for the past decade and have been really pleased with its latest incarnation.

Season’s Greetings from The Confluence Fly Shop

Hope you enjoy this little Holiday poem I wrote for y’all. Rivers are on the drop! Twas the night before Christmas and all through the lake, I twitched a leech slowly, awaiting a take. The cold rain fell steady with an audible plop as we anxiously waited for rivers to drop. Brown torrents of water […]

Fishing Report: December 2015

After the big deluge, the weather has given way to cold bright skies and abominably frosty gravel bars lined with hoar frost castles. The rivers have been in shape until recently and we’ve been seeing hungry char, late chum and coho with a few early winter steelhead navigating the clear, pebbled flows. With warm, wet […]
