Fishing Report: January 2017

Welcome to our winter wonderland! Our steady, dripping slog of a rain-infused autumn has finally given way to an arctic landscape. After a couple years of fairly mild January’s, we’re once again reminded of what it’s like to be truly cold. Ice is forming around the boats in Squalicum Harbor, icicles line the eaves and […]

Since my first exposure to tube flies many years ago, I’ve kindled an intense intrigue for the many exciting possibilities they represent in the world of fly design. The Pro Sport Fisher Tube system has so many nifty components, colors and options to play with that I’m reminded of the endless hours I spent as […]

Fishing Report: December 2016

After a soggy start to November, we finished out the month with some cooler, drier climes, bringing most of our rivers into fishable shape. Like eagles on a fresh chum carcass, we flocked to the water to see what was out there and have been finding lots of chum salmon, bull trout and even some […]

Fishing Report: November 2016

Rain, rain go away, come again some other day. After the wettest October on record, we are still wringing out our clothing, drip drying waders and Gore-tex jackets and laying out drenched flies in heated rooms to stave the onset of rust. Most of our rivers are beyond full, easing toward fishable for a few […]

November Fly of the Month: Huevos Con Leche

Last month we shared an egg sucking leech pattern as a highly effective all around fall salmon, steelhead and big char fly. For November we’ll cut straight to the chase and tie a stand-alone egg pattern. Following the seasonal orgy of salmon spawning, most of our rivers boast a sizeable biomass in the form of […]

Fishing Report: August 2016

As it so often does, our Northwest summer seems to be trickling by all too quickly and we’re already into the dog days of August. It’s refreshing to find a few cooler cloudy days intermittently breaking the cycle of palpable scorchers. Besides, those are arguably the best ones to fish. We’d normally be ramping up […]

August Fly Pattern of the Month: Dali Llama

We’re taking a little break from our usual tying videos this month. Between being the busy summer, trying to squeeze in some time on the water and having our trusty cameraman Clint off exploring western Alberta to film the Fishing with Ladin Show, we’ll wait to resume the videos next month. Our August fly of […]

Fishing Report: April 2016

This past month certainly lived up to its reputation, coming in like a lion, gnashing perilous teeth, dumping blankets of rain and hurricane winds, effectively shredding many an opportunity to enjoy the water. We’re quite pleased that March left us on a far more docile note, with characteristic lamb-like days pushing 70 degrees and tranquil […]

Fly Pattern of the Month: April 2016

The Willy Whitefish began nearly a decade ago, the product of much fiddling and tinkering at the bench as I sought to come up with a faithful bull trout fly that was quick to tie, had lots of inherent movement and flash, cast with ease and caught fish. It’s parents were the infamous Zonker and […]
