Fly Fishing Report: August 2022

For the first time in the last few summers, the dog days of August feel a tad less dogged. Despite last week’s heat wave, many of our rivers on both sides of the mountains remain comfortably cool with decent flows thanks to an abundant snow pack. From the sunshine, the prime water conditions over many […]

Fly Fishing Report: June 2022

With barely a week and a half until the Summer Solstice it’s still hard to trust the calendar after a casual glance outside. It feels a little like crossing the finish line at the Boston Marathon and being told you just have another 5 miles to go. Nevertheless, in spite of the continual onslaught of […]

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: 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 […]

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 […]
