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: December 2018

Everything has dropped in nicely over the last week thanks to a plummeting mercury and welcome break in the rain. In the midst of our seasonal doom and gloom, these little sun flurries really perk things up. On the extreme end, the fishing can get more difficult when the bottom falls out from beneath our […]

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 […]

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 combination of marabou supported by a flashy synthetic prop and long hackle tip wings moves incredibly […]

January Fly of the Month: The Fake Taco

Jeff Hickman’s Fish Taco fly pattern has long held a special place in my winter steelhead box. It’s pretty quick and simple to tie, a fishing or guide fly that looks attractive in the water, has proven fish appeal and doesn’t break your heart when it clings to an unforeseen sunken branch and won’t let […]

Fly Fishing Report: December 2017

While still a few short days away from true Winter, it’s feeling particularly wintery in the North Sound these days. Frozen windshields, icy roads and an extra hot cup of coffee to begin the day is our December drill. It’s been a long and arduous wait since July, but we’re pleased to see some of […]
