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 […]

Fly Fishing Report: January 2020

Happy New Year everyone and thanks for a strong finish to 2019. We hope you all enjoyed a warm, safe and fun-filled Holiday season. While it’d be a bald-faced lie to say fishing in the North Sound region is anytime approaching red hot right now, there’s still some opportunity and with a little patience, determination […]

Fly Fishing Report: November 2019

Another year is winding down and our glory months of September and October seemed to race by at breakneck speed, giving way to a cold, but not entirely unpleasant first bit of November.  It’s nice to see the sun still shining and while the rain is probably not far off, we’re doing our best to […]

Fly Fishing Report: October 2019

I’ve always loved those years when summer seamlessly bleeds into fall.  Lots of lingering sunshine and discernable warmth permeates the heart of the day.  The leaves turn gradually, the breeze is light and occasional and those buckets of rain we all know will come sooner or later seem to take their sweet time.  This doesn’t […]

Fly Fishing Report: September 2019

September is upon us and with it some cooler weather and wetter skies that for us mark a shift in focus back to our cold water salmonids.  Salmon are making their way through the Puget Sound and into our rivers, bull trout are continuing their upstream journeys to stage below their spawning tributaries, bugs are […]

Fly Fishing Report: August 2019

Beating the heat is the name of the game.  As a fair-skinned dude of Danish descent, I’m not really wired for hot weather.  I get sluggish, nauseated and bake in the sun like an overcooked steak.  I know we’re not accustomed to real heat here in the Northwest but anything over 75 gets me seeking […]
