Fly Fishing Report: September 2018

I honestly began to feel like our sunny summer streak would never end, as rivers shrunk and continued to shrink into shriveled boney versions of themselves. Then the skies blew wide open, deluging us with that familiar drip that makes the Northwest what it is. By late August, some of our fisheries were beginning to […]

September Fly of the Month: Peter Parker Cutty Spider

Spiders and sea run cutthroat go together like bread and butter, wine and cheese, beer and a big bag of Cheetos.

Yellow and […]

March Fly of the Month: Chumbody’s Baby

Every spring, mind-blowing scads of juvenile salmon wriggle out of the gravel river bottom, and along with hundreds of thousands of their brethren and closest friends, make their way downstream and into the saltwater to feed and get bigger and hopefully one day return all grown up.
