Fly Fishing Report: May 2022

Once upon a time I used to keep a fishing journal. I’d diligently record notes on conditions, temperatures, hatches, general observations, successful flies, fish caught and whatever else I thought might aid in establishing seasonal patterns that could help crack the code and lead to another fine day of fishing somewhere down the road. Even […]

Fly Fishing Report: April 2022

All signs are pointing towards winter finally relinquishing its icy grip on the Pacific Northwest. Sure, it might hail one day, snow the next, dip back into the 30’s at night for a week or two, but the sun is shining a just a little more these days and we’re beginning to experience something akin […]

Fly Fishing Report: March 2022

After what felt like the longest, coldest, dampest winter in recent memory, we find ourselves edging ever closer to Spring. I for one really appreciate being able to click off the open sign at the shop with plenty of daylight still left in the sky. Lakes are warming across the state, bugs are hatching and […]

Fly Fishing Report: February 2022

After a seemingly endless dark, damp, cold and dreary winter, we are beginning to see a light on the horizon. With barely a month until the official start of Spring it’s been awesome to begin the process of reacquainting ourselves with the sun for a couple of days over the past few weeks. Of course […]

Fly Fishing Report: December 2021

An Atmospheric River Runs Through It was the riveting story of a bunch of fisher people who wanted nothing more than to go fishing in November 2021 and instead found themselves pumping water out of their basements, sandbagging their riverfront property and nervously driving through downtown torrents of water from Iowa Street to Squalicum Parkway. […]

Fly Fishing Report: November 2021

Gray skies, unrelenting rain, brown rivers and a lackluster Seahawks season. It’s enough to drive a Pacific Northwesterner mad at times. Seems like we’ve gone from one extreme to another and have been regularly bombarded by exponentially more raindrops than the brilliant rays of sunshine we experienced all summer. Then again, that’s life in these […]

Fly Fishing Report: October 2021

Fishing trips…they are the stitches that piece meal the year together, mark the seasons, mentally get you from A to B during a busy work stretch, motivate you at the tying bench and 100% feed the soul. I’ll take any opportunity to fish, be it a couple of hours before work or a rainy Sunday […]

Fly Fishing Report: September 2021

We’re about a week away from the official start of fall, though it feels like the season has crept in prematurely with some drizzle and gray. It’s a welcome change after a sweltering summer and we’re entering what many express to be their favorite time of the year to fish. It is most certainly mine. […]

Fly Fishing Report: August 2021

By now most of us have a pretty good sense of what it’s like to be a corn dog under a gas station heat lamp. Days upon days of sizzle, the intermittent red glow of a wildfire sun beating down on you as much of the west continues to burn. Sound apocalyptic? Yep, it sure […]
