Dubbed the "Puffy Grail" it's since been attributed to a mass exhale sparked by lawmakers legalizing in-state recreational marijuana sales.

    The Orvis Fly Fishing Guide Podcast
    9 Feb 2014 | 7:26 am
    This week is all about fly tying.  I took a whole bunch of questions that came in over the past week (thank you very much for your great questions) and we spend about an hour going over some tricky and not-so-tricky questions.  The hardest one for me was to list the essential fly tying materials every tier should have on his or her bench (and I was not allowed to use CDC, rabbit fur, or peacock herl, which made it even tougher) and it took me two days to decide on that one.  I ended up cheating and coming up with a trout list and a saltwater list.  Other questions included…

    Zac Kauffman of Sawyer Paddles and Oars explains their newest oar, called the Squaretop V-Lam. Besides being one of the prettiest oars I’ve ever seen it’s also incredibly rugged and rower-friendly.  It’s described by Sawyer as, “a solid wood oar from the top of the laminated Douglas Fir handle and shaft to the laminated Western Red Cedar blade. It Incorporates the unduplicated feel and Progressive Flex from a tapered wood shaft and the added strength of Fiberglass/Carbon X-Weave reinforcement. The over-sized square top provides a counter balanced feel without…

    2 Apr 2014 | 6:40 pm
    Not that it mattered I'd planned to fish something new, and was ready for a bold adventure. But then I remembered promising my buddy that I'd do some light mechanical work on his stupid Accord that evening. That guy doesn't even fish. Anyway, no one likes exploring with a time constraint, so I resigned myself to fishing the same old stupid river I always do. I usually like to swing the bait-water on weekdays. But when I arrived, the water level revealed that to be a bad idea. Since I'd forgotten my jig and bobber in my other pants, I shot up to the fly water.

    Goodbye to the Evergreen State Photos and words by Lucas Young There’s a fine line in winter steelheading between bliss and torment. If there was no hope for the first, there’d be little incentive to endure the latter. Riding in Clyde is a bit like that. In summer, he’s warm and smooth and stylish—blissful, even. But in February, with the wind whistling through all the gaps in his weatherstripping, the dull roar allows little room for your own thoughts. It’ll make you tougher, at least.

    California’s drought continues, and tracking all the stories about it would overflow even a blog dedicated to the stuff. Inexplicably, few of the stories focus on the plight of the poor small stream fly fisherman and the privations he’ll suffer during the drought, but the New York Times does cover two fairly appalling trends in the California water landscape. First, investors — with little real connection to the land — are buying up Central Valley farmland. And second, growers are planting far more water-intensive crops than before: Several insurance and pension funds…

    Big hammerhead shark caught and released aboard the Big Game The fishing is heating up in Fort Lauderdale this week.  Sharks are snapping in 350ft of water.  Hammerheads, makos and thresher sharks are all out there and moving through in strong numbers.  Head out about a mile and a half offshore, set your baits and wait a bit.  Chum the water and hum the theme to Jaws.  You won’t have to wait too long to get a bite on something that is probably larger than you are.  These monsters are 8-12ft and 200-400 pounds.  While you’re shark fishing, you may even pick up a big dolphin…

Fly wallets work great at times as well, although wet hands can become a problem when trying to remove only one fly at a time. We’re constantly searching for the best way to…

  • A Knotty Approach to Time on the Water.

    While sharing some time on the water the other day with Dave Kile (dkile) I experienced what seems to happen often during a decent hatch with some wind, you guessed it, a wind knot! Or as Lefty Kreh calls them, bad casting knots. Everyone gets them now and then especially when combining a breeze, long leaders and fine tippets. Or for the chuck and duck crowd, of which I am often a member, weight and multiple flies. So as Dave stands upstream pondering my delay to cast to a rising fish, he asks, what’s the problem Einstein?

    By Brian McGeehanThe Aisen Region of Chile is located about the same distance South of the Equator as Montana is North. On a recent trip to the Coyaquie province we targeted wild browns and rainbows while fishing a remarkable diversity of fisheries including large float rivers, huge crystal clear lakes, spring creeks and wilderness mountain streams. We stayed at the Magic Waters Patagonia Lodge which is tucked away in remote valley with 5 private lakes filled with wild trophy fish. The lodge is right on the edge of the Cerro Castillo National Reserve and the wilderness lakes and rivers within…

  • Fly Fishing Getting Started - What Fly Rod and Fly Reel to get?

    20 Mar 2014 | 1:20 pm
    If you ask any fly fishing angler out there what is the best first rod and reel setup you need, you will get a different answer from everyone. Picking your second, third, or even seventh rod you will have some very specific purposes in mind and still get a lot of different answers. Your first fly rod and reel should be a good general purpose setup that will be easy to use in most any trout stream in the region. For the love of Zeus you don't want to look like the dopey guy in the Symbicort commercial that has a crappy M*A*S*H hat, is fishing for brook trout in a creek with a large arbor…

    23 Apr 2014 | 12:33 pm
    A few weeks ago I was contacted by a representative of Berghaus asking if I’d like to review one of their jackets, the Monsoon. As I was on the look out for a new one due to my current jacket bing too big now I’ve been running for over a year, a few emails later a lovely olive green Berghaus Monsoon Jacket arrived in the post and first impressions were good. The quality felt excellent and compared with my (now) old one it is very light. It’s more minimal than I’m used to with only 1 medium pocket either side and no internal pockets but this isn’t always a bad thing…

On opening the box first impressions were wow, these things weigh nothing and they look great, I couldn’t wait to get them on and go for my first ‘barefoot’ run.

We made good time up the motorways into Scotland and arrived at Ardrossan far, far to early so had a quick walk round the ferry terminal while waiting for our crossing. The crossing on the ‘MV Isle of Arran’ was uneventful which is always a bonus and it wasn’t long until we could see Arran through the haze. We quickly disembarked at Brodick and did a quick trip…

    If you haven’t employed swimbaits for bass fishing, now is the time to start. The fact is swimbaits are becoming a more dominant way to catch not only numbers of pressured bass but big bass as well. What started as a big bass craze out west, has become a permanent bait for catching bass all across the country. The Sassy Shads of yesteryear have been replaced by the hollow bodied and jointed swim baits of today. There are both hard swimbaits made out of wood, plastic and other composite materials as well as soft plastic molded swimbaits. Of the soft plastic variety, there are several…

  • Gierach talks Tenkara

    17 Apr 2014 | 5:37 am
    One of the most important endorsements for tenkara fishing came from beloved fly-fishing writer John Gierach. The "Trout Bum" author has always been a fan of small streams, and found tenkara a great way to fish them. (He also happens to have a longstanding interest in Japanese culture.) Gierach has a chapter about tenkara fishing in his new book, "All Fishermen Are Liars," and sat down for an interview with Daniel Galhardo, founder of Tenkara USA. It's worth a watch.

  • The Tenkara Fly-Fishing Revolution

    Five years after Tenkara USA introduced japanese-style fixed-line fishing to the United States, thousands -- maybe tens of thousands -- of anglers have learned how fun and effective it can be to fly-fish without a reel. "Just a rod, a line and fly," was Tenkara USA's slogan, and it struck a chord with anglers intrigued by a minimalist approach to fishing. But tenkara isn't just simple. It's a great way to catch a lot of fish, because the ability of the long rod to hole the light line off the water makes for a great presentation and a direct connection to the fly. (Just ask European and…
  • Didymo or no Didymo, Clean Angling's a Must

    9 Apr 2014 | 11:48 am
    It turns out didymo wasn't being "spread" on the soles of anglers' wading shoes after all. It was already present in many streams, and only began blooming in recent years because of environmental changes. But that doesn't mean we no longer need to worry about dirty wading shoes spreading contaminants. Clean angling advocates say some anglers have taken the new findings on the cause of didymo blooms to mean we're off the hook when it comes to clean angling -- but switching from felt to rubber soles (if possible) and practicing Check, Clean and Dry are still vital to the health of our trout…

    When Didymosphenia geminate, very un-affectionately known as "rock snot," began appearing on beloved American trout streams in the mid-2000s, state governments and environmental organizations said it was being "spread" by anglers, in the damp felt soles of their wading boots. It was a logical conclusion, promoted by a Canadian environmental scientist who studied the first major North American didymo blooms in British Columbia. But now, that same scientist says further research shows the rash of didymo has not been caused by the spread of a new, bloom-prone variant after all. Didymo was…

    21 Apr 2014 | 9:26 am

By early fall, however, those gnarly tails regenerate, and that's a pretty amazing phenomenon as far as I'm concerned. It kind of makes you wonder why if fish can do it, why can't we regenerate new toes if they get run over by the lawn mower? I recently called my friend Jim Burris from Duke Medical Center to ask a few of these questions, and the answers I got were pretty amazing. Thanks to studies of fish regeneration abilities, people in the future may, in fact, be…

    If you fish for rainbow trout you need to familiarize yourself with a trout bait known as Powerbait. This dough style bait is manufactured by a company named Berkley and as an effective a bait as there is if you want to catch a rainbow trout. However there are two caveats that you should be aware of. First,the rainbow trout that you are attempting to catch have been "stocked" or "planted" into the water that you are fishing, hopefully within a fairly recent time frame, and second that you are fishing in a fairly stagnant water scenario such as a lake, pond, or large pool in a river.Why is it…

  • Rainbow Trout Fishing – Using The Moon To Help You Catch More Trout

    JRWFishing
    4 Apr 2014 | 5:17 am
    It's officially spring and many people start to turn their attention to rainbow trout fishing at this timeof year. When they think of rainbow trout, they are more than likely thinking about baits, lures, where to fish when they can get off of work, where the trout are being stocked, etc. But the one subject that a majority of trout fishermen overlook is the moon.Whether or not you realize it, the moon plays quite a role in whether or not the rainbows that you are fishing for are going to be active or not. And can you guess what happens when the rainbow trout that you are fishing for are…
  • How To Catch Trout When The Rivers Are High And Muddy

    JRWFishing
    31 Mar 2014 | 11:18 am
    One of the biggest challenges that springtime trout fishermen face are high and muddy water conditions in the rivers and streams that they fish. I know this because I have been fishing for trout, primarily in rivers, for almost 30 years and experience this problem first hand every single year. The winter finally breaks, the weather begins to warm up, and I start to ache for being on the river like an alcoholic aches for a beer after a twelve hour shift on the factory floor. Then I get down to my favorite trout river, only to discover that the river is running high and muddy, which can make…
  • Have You Ever Heard of a Blue Rainbow Trout?

    JRWFishing
    29 Mar 2014 | 5:22 am
      If you give me a choice I will choose to fish for native trout (which means a trout that was born or   lived a majority of its life in the water in which it is caught), but the truth of the matter is that what I end up fishing for many times are rainbow trout that have been stocked into the waterway that I am fishing.   Stocked trout generally don't fight as hard and are much less wary than their native cousins, but are nonetheless the trout that I sometimes have to fish for if I want to go trout fishing.  Well, in Pennsylvania they are stocking a new strain of…

  • Bass of 2014

    Randall Pruitt
    7 Apr 2014 | 2:06 pm
    So I have been bass fishing for prespawn bass and nothing seems to be biting at all. I caught 1 bass on a bass pro shop jerkbait in xxx shad color. I caught another on a small white marabou jig under a bobber in 1/8 oz.Water temps were in the low 50s both times. I have attempted topwater with no luck even after the warm weather has brought water temps up. Will continue to update as things get better.

Anyway I finally snagged a small striper in lake lanier. While fishing for crappie using the multi colored 1/16 oz jig               ( pictured below ) under a pear bobber at 3 ft a striper grabbed it. Water temps are in the 50s and air temps were in the 50s also that morning with wind in all directions.

  • Crappie Ready

    Randall Pruitt
    27 Feb 2014 | 1:21 am
    Crappie fishing is some of the best panfish to catch and eat! My setup for crappie is a Daiwa Laguna spinning reel spooled up with Crappie Max 6 lb camouflage line on a Daiwa Laguna soft tip rod. The soft tip keeps pressure from pulling the hooks from the crappie's paper mouth.Some of the brands of lures and jigs I use are pictured below. I've found the best sizes are 1/16 and lower for crappie. Color of lures and jig heads depend on water clarity and depth.Sliders are in white/chartreuse a very effective color.These white spoiler shad made by Creme are effective on crappie as well as…

It's great for the person with small hands and wants a gun to carry concealed all the time. It weighs about 11 oz loaded and 8.2 oz unloaded.It's a Double Action Only with a long trigger pull. With the regular magazine I could only get my middle and ring finger around the grip.I added a Pearce mag extension and got a much better grip without sacraficing concealement.For a great economical firearm with a lifetime warranty,…

  • Buzzard’s Bay Fishing Report | Part 1

    Ryan Collins
    23 Apr 2014 | 2:01 am
    Fishing Buzzard’s Bay is a great idea right now, because striped bass often show up in Buzzard’s Bay before they show up in other areas of the Cape. In recent years my first striper of the season has been caught in Buzzard’s Bay. In this trip I fished numerous locales throughout Buzzard’s Bay, in search of my first striped bass of the 2014 season.

    I was on the Eastern shoreline of a small lake that we sometimes fish.  For my last minute day off from work,  I had been blessed with mild sunny weather.  It was April,  and the blue sky was dotted with drifting puffy white clouds. There was a slight Northerly breeze.  Just enough to ripple the crystal clear water. The fish were small. Tiny in fact. Last year’s stocking had clearly been a success,  and as a result we would have to put up with these ankle biters until following seasons,  by which time the fishing would no doubt be superb. For now,  I was content. So what if the…

    Do you remember that scene from “a River runs through it” where the camera swoops across a  rocky ridge, and reveals the two boys running across the open grasslands? Here in the KZN midlands, our landscape, notwithstanding its beauty, is lined and dotted with trees. Not only trees of course, there are fence-lines and farmhouses and roads too, but the trees are significant. Early writings by explorers in this area reveal the extent to which this place was a sea of grass. A world with the dew still on it:  there are still patches to be cherished.

    I don’t remember what the occasion was, but a number of us had been invited up to Bill Duckworth’s Trout syndicate at the top end of the Dargle Valley. We were staying over at the “Opera House” , and it was a colourful gathering to say the least. I vaguely remember that the band of merry fishermen included Jim Read, Mike Harker, Henry Aucock, Bill Duckworth, Trevor Sweeney, Hugh Huntley, and myself. There may have been others. It was October of 1995. Spring had sprung, and I remember a  cool wind across short green veld, some of which still bore traces of ash from the winter burn. I…
