Warm Water Big And Small

Warm Water Big And Small

if you are seeking a muse for warm weather fly fishing, just consider the many species that will give your fly reel a noisy spin. Perch on a 3 weight fly rod, large Carp with a 7 weight, Largemouth Bass with a 5 weight or Inland Trout can all be good fun on a hot summers day. I caught both of these fish...

Sight Casting

Sight Casting

Sight casting both literally and figuratively (Photo).  Conditions change on the tributaries every day and so should your tactical approach to Steelhead fishing. When the water is Turbid (stained), conditions are much more forgiving in terms of your presentation of your fly. Floats or strike indicators...
