December Fly of the Month: The Flamingo Kid

Pink is as tried and true a color combo for winter steelhead as any. Various shades of pink shine like a beacon in the cold clear flows of low winter water. This shade also glows like an ember in the smoky green, glacially tinted currents as the river drops into shape from a high water […]

Fishing Report: March 2017

Winter continues to embrace the Northwest in a relentless bear hug.

Fishing Report: January 2017

Welcome to our winter wonderland! Our steady, dripping slog of a rain-infused autumn has finally given way to an arctic landscape. After a couple years of fairly mild January’s, we’re once again reminded of what it’s like to be truly cold. Ice is forming around the boats in Squalicum Harbor, icicles line the eaves and […]

December Fly of the Month: Brandon’s “Hey What Color is This?”

December brings you Brandon’s “Hey What Color is This?” Steelhead Fly, a sinfully enticing, breathtakingly sexy winter steelhead pattern. For those of you that may miss the humor in this fly’s nom de plume, Brandon is color-blind and therefore has little concept of what color his little brainchild actually is.

Fishing Report: April 2016

This past month certainly lived up to its reputation, coming in like a lion, gnashing perilous teeth, dumping blankets of rain and hurricane winds, effectively shredding many an opportunity to enjoy the water. We’re quite pleased that March left us on a far more docile note, with characteristic lamb-like days pushing 70 degrees and tranquil […]
