Fly Pattern of the Month: March 2016

March typically ushers in the first major chironomid hatches of the spring season and with them, scores of hungry trout awaken to scavenge the lake for an easy meal. Chironomids are an incredibly important food source in still waters and imitating them provides memorable fishing days on lakes throughout the western states and Canadian provinces. […]

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.

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. There’s another several days of cold clear skies on the horizon and then we settle back into that winter rain we’ve come to at least […]

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 […]
