Fly Fishing Report: April 2019

Spring has most certainly sprung and along with it came one of the nicest Marches I can remember.  Day upon day of T-shirt weather, birds chirping, buds blossoming and lots and lots of sun.  Depending on your choice of fisheries, the weather has been both good and bad.  Lakes are certainly warming, chironomid hatches are […]

Fly Fishing Report: March 2019

As a short month, February seemingly slipped by me in a wink.  Between limited fishing opportunities, blankets of snow and abysmally cold weather, there just wasn’t much to report.  Most years, February is a month I just can’t wait to send packing.  Admittedly, I was also a bit distracted by an upcoming trip to Christmas […]

Fly Fishing Report: March 2018

Just when you begin to think spring is right around the corner, we get blanketed in wet snow and chilled by the frosty bite of a harsh north wind. Nonetheless, there appear to be signs of life out there. Pretty much all of our local Washington rivers are done for the season, and as is […]

February Fly of the Month: Funky Chicken

The Funky Chicken is inspired by Solitude Fly Company’s Burnt Chicken pattern, a great larger profile winter steelhead fly that shows up well in off color water and triggers a reaction from lethargic fish in icy winter flows.
