Fly Fishing Report: September 2020

We get the sense that our weird, pandemic summer is winding down.  Despite all the chaos erupting in the world at large, our time on the water has continued to feel about as normal and familiar as anything can be these days.  Slouched on opposite sides of a fire ring, favorite cold beverages in hand, […]

Fly Fishing Report: August 2020

It was worth the wait.  After a rainy kick off, cool temps and lots of water cascading down our rivers through much of July, we’ve finally gotten a hearty dose of summer here in the Pacific Northwest and it looks like it may be here to stay for a while.  While the pandemic continues to […]

Fly Fishing Report: July 2020

Well, we’ve blazed past the summer solstice and are a few weeks into summer.  At least that’s what the calendar tells us.  You wouldn’t necessarily know that by looking outside.  I can only hope the cool weather and extra rain we’re getting now will prolong some of our fisheries during the hotter months of summer.  […]

Fly Fishing Report: June 2020

Fishing has been fantastic for the most part, though just being outdoors, bobbing on the water in a float tube and free from the confines of quarantine life is as fine a measure of success as one could possibly hope for.  It is a chance to break away, take a deep breath and rejuvenate before […]

Fly Fishing Report: May 2020

I feel like we’re all now pretty well entrenched in the craziest of times.  The world is a far different place from the one we left in February.  Our hearts go out to all who have been touched by this terrible virus and all who are struggling to deal with the many hardships that continue […]

It’s time for another installment of local fisheries 101 in the absence of any relevant fishing reports to pass on. I have a lot of seasonal fishing focus ideas floating around in my head at any given point and when it comes time to pluck one from the ether, it can feel a little random. […]

Fly Rod Bronzebacks on the Big Lake

Thanks all for the continued support during this crisis. As hard as it is, this social distancing thing seems to be making some positive strides and let’s hope we can at least get on the water and back to fishing here before too long. As much as the fly tying and prepping and dreaming effectively […]

North Sound Bass, Bluegill and a Dude Called “Pan Fry”

In lieu of fishing reports during the COVID 19 pandemic and given that all fishing in Washington State is closed for the time being, we’re going to highlight some of our favorite fisheries close to home until that eagerly anticipated day when we can safely go fish once again. My goal is to entertain you, […]

Fly Fishing Report: March 2020

Things are finally beginning to unfold into a more palatable landscape of blue sky, budding trees, and breathless days that make spending a few hours on the water in pursuit of fish downright pleasant once again. I even heard the faint song of a varied thrush echoing through thin walls of an outhouse in Forks […]

Fly Fishing Report: February 2020

I think a lot of us are officially done with winter, though it may not quite be done with us. I usually look forward to the dark dreary days of January and February, knowing I’ll spend as many of them as I can knee deep in the cold flows of the Nooksack or Skagit, swinging […]
