Fly Fishing Report: July 2021

It’s been a perpetual scorcher over the last few weeks with few signs of abating and I feel a bit like bacon sizzling in a cast iron skillet. Being on or in the water as much as is humanly possible has been one of few saving graces so far in the hottest June/July I can […]

Fly Fishing Report: June 2021

The last few weeks have provided the perfect combination of motivation and opportunity, landing me on the water more often than not. I thought about heading east for Memorial Day weekend, then pictured the procession of RV’s, armada of SUV’s and weary line of SOB’s crawling over the North Cascades to flood the campgrounds and […]

Fly Fishing Report: May 2021

Certain cyclical events indelibly mark the season and give us a sense of time and place without ever having to glance at the calendar or peruse the screen of your smartphone. The other night as I was taking out the recycling after hours at the shop, I became acutely aware of the sentinel of seagulls […]

Fly Fishing Report: April 2021

I think it’s spring but I’m not completely sure. Some days the sun is shining and the magnetic pull to the lake is undeniably strong. I launch my float tube, gliding smoothly across the reflective flat waters of the pond. Trout are rising just a few short kicks away. I’ve been waiting all winter for […]

Fly Fishing Report: March 2021

I dare say that spring is in the air. The thermometer in my Subaru registered 52 degrees the other day and it felt downright tropical outside compared to the 30’s and 40’s we’ve been suffering through for the last several weeks. With the warming weather we’re seeing more active steelhead in the Skagit and Sauk, […]

Fly Fishing Report: February 2021

Howdy folks, it’s February and boy does it feel like it. We hope you’re staying warm and healthy and finding some time to fish or stock the fly boxes for the warmer months to come. For me, there are times when my fishing feels largely governed by stubbornness, a refusal to concede to the elements […]

Fly Fishing Report: January 2021

2020, the year many would just as soon obliterate from the memory banks has drawn to a close. As with all new years, we can begin with a mental clean slate, an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and misdeeds, an opportunity to advance and discover something new, a chance to better yourself or seek […]

Fly Fishing Report: December 2020

Ahhh…2020, the year we never thought would end, is nearing its final stretch.  As much as we’re all fairly fed up with pandemics, politics and the multitude of disruptions to our normal daily flow, it hasn’t been all bad.  As a relative creature of habit, I’ve appreciated being forced to change up my normal fishing […]

Fly Fishing Report: November 2020

Here we are on election day, something we’ve either been waiting on all year or silently dreading.  I imagine for many folks it’s a mixture of both.  2020 has been a challenging time for too many people and I think most of the world will be content to see it behind us.  There’s a vast […]

Fly Fishing Report: October 2020

Between the blinding smoke haze and impenetrable fog over the last several weeks it’s been a challenge to see what’s going on out there and in extreme cases, even safely get outside.  Fortunately, there’ve been enough windows open here and there to enjoy a number of fine days on the water as summer passes the […]
