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: May 2019

Seasons come and seasons go.  It’s a bittersweet goodbye to our much anticipated spring steelhead catch and release fishery on the Skagit and Sauk.  Catching was hit and miss, picking up a little more through April as the month wound down.

Fly Fishing Report: May 2018

We’ve been fortunate experience a nice long string of warm days the last several weeks.  Having lived a lifetime in western Washington, it’s easy to forget how essential a little vitamin D is to the psyche every now and then. It certainly adds a whole other layer of enjoyment to being out on the water.  […]

May Fly of the Month: Jean Claude Van Damsel

As our stillwaters heat up later in May and through the month of June, nature’s original hula dancers, the damsel nymphs get active and become readily available for foraging fish. Damsels are found around weed beds and migrate toward shoreline vegetation to emerge into adults. They are characteristically slender, move with a pronounced wiggle and […]

Fly Fishing Report: April 2018

Spring has sprung, at least some of the time. Then there are the odd days when you get pummeled with hail and wet snow while chasing early season bass on Terrell or have to don fleece gloves on Pass Lake through the entirety of a day as ambient air temperatures straddle the fence between liquids […]
