It’s not how high you fly

…it’s how far you go. This past weekend I had Mark out for his first trip of the season. As you would guess it was rough going at first. He got the hang of it again just in time to land a bunch of trout including this 24 inch wild brown trout! More often than not keeping with it equals success than one would think. Just like when I was a kid I was told that quitters never win. This was true again. He landed it European Nymphing with 6x tippet.

Night Fly Fishing – The Quest for a Brown Trout of a Lifetime

Introduction Fly fishing for trout at night takes a special dedication. It requires sleep deprivation, sometimes in massive quantities, especially if there is a large trout at stake.

I could not get up until 9:30, so after hitting up Fat Nancy’s in Pulaski, New York for some supplies, I was on the river by two. The crowds were VERY light so we had our choice of spots. We all did excellent. The Salmon River did not disappoint! We did very well with switch and Spey rods with indicators and egg patterns. We had some fresher steelhead in the mix along with some older “holding” fish. Who cares what they look like when you are having fun with two great...

I got out on New Years Day to a small limestone stream in eastern Pennsylvania. The water was slightly high, but the fishing was decent. I fished a dry fly with two dropper nymphs. The trout were all wild brown trout from 6 to 12 inches. It was not a bad start to a New Year! From the pictures that you will see from the past two weeks you’ll see that it’s been really good so...

….you have Umpqua Shimizaki dry fly shake in you bathroom. Dry fly Floatant in with the toothbrushes, shaver, and the other toiletries looks a little weird but it means that you are really hardcore 😉 Or maybe it means that I can’t wait to cast dries to rising fish???
