October Fly of the Month: Diamond Dog

Fall means a lot of things to a lot of people.  For me it means coho salmon.  One of the things I love about coho is their run diversity on our North Sound rivers.  We have bright coho returning from September well into December and beyond.  Under the right circumstances, they’re aggressive, hard fighting and […]

August Fly of the Month: Hi-Viz Para Ant

I still remember my earliest fishing days as an awkward pre-teen out for the summer to visit Grandma in the Colorado High Country.  She’d turn me loose for the day in the willow thickets of the Rockies; fly rod in hand, an old wicker creel and a full belly of pancakes from the Hahn’s Peak […]

July Fly of the Month: Sculpito Loco

I remember the bulky fly vest, brimming with boxes of this bug and that, sagging with the weight of everything under the sun.  Then I got caught up in swinging streamers and foregoing numbers of willing bug-eating trout for a few really nice ones accompanied by that unforgettable tug that most dedicated streamer swingers grow to […]

June Fly of the Month: P9 From Outer Space Bass Worm

I’ve long had an affinity for bass worm patterns.  Watching gear anglers toss Senkos into mats of vegetation and tangles of wood, heaving out bragging sized largemouth gets my blood pumping.  Why not do the same with a fly?  I’ve tied a lot of different variations of bass worm patterns over the years, some with […]

April Fly of the Month: Chum Fry Clouser

For many saltwater fly fishers, the Clouser Minnow is king.  It catches just about everything, is versatile, effective and also easy to tie.  When your fly takes a header into a barnacled beach rock or gets snapped off on the big mystery salmonid that snatched it up and tried to run a quarter mile over […]

January Fly of the Month: Balanced Leech

Balanced Leeches are becoming more and more popular amongst the ranks of stillwater fly fishers and account for lots of nice trout throughout the lake season.  They offer several advantages over other more traditional leech patterns, and while the old standbys are far from obsolete, the benefits of “balanced fishing” are worth considering.  First off, Balanced […]

December Fly of the Month: Leadbelly Spey

Winter is upon us and with it the cherished opportunity to swing flies for steelhead in our favorite rivers and streams of the west coast. I’ve long been a fan of the classic Marabou Spey patterns for steelhead, from the simple wound marabou patterns of Bob Aid to the decidedly fancied up ties of John […]
