  • Tips for Catching Warm Weather Steelhead

    The Orvis Fly Fishing Guide Podcast
    15 Aug 2014 | 5:53 am
      In this week’s podcast, I interview my old friend Brian O’Keefe, founder of Catch Magazine, on tips for catching warm weather steelhead.  Brian is one of the best anglers and teachers around, and I think it’s a particularly helpful interview full of good solid information.  Plus it’s always fun to have Brian on the podcast.  In the fly box, we talk about “buddy fish”, the utility of stripping baskets, a recommended rod for moving up from trout fishing, plus other short topics.

    In the mid-’90s I was doing programs for the Canadian Sportsmen's Show in Vancouver B.C. The event was at B.C. Place Stadium and I stayed in The Georgian Court Hotel across the street. At that time, the hotel was home to many actors that came to “Hollywood North” for filming. Robin Williams was there and happened to see one of my televised demonstrations. Turned out he was interested in flyfishing and needed some pointers before heading to Alaska. He wanted to learn how to throw a shooting-head with a floating running line.

      After a hiatus for family vacation, a trade show, a tarpon trip, and just plain sloth and procrastination, we finally have a new podcast and it’s a long one, well over an hour.  In the podcast we talk about keeping hold of big brown trout, big browns chasing hooked fish, rusty hooks, broken hooks, and dubbing problems.  Quite an eclectic mix.  The main part of the podcast is “Five Reasons for Breaking Out of Your Comfort Zone” and I think you’ll be surprised at some of the benefits of trying new places and new techniques.  There is a bonus…

    If apps are your thing and selecting the right line for your rig isn’t, RIO might have the solution. Last week, the Idaho Falls-based company introduced its free Line Selector App, designed to make “...the connection to fish come easier for anglers whether it’s through its lines, leaders and tippet or through education on the consumer and dealer level.” Considering I often fall under the fly-lines-for-dummies category, I downloaded “Line Selector” to an iPhone 5, and within minutes was navigating a series of targeted prompts.

Idaho's lower South Fork of the Snake had fished well that afternoon. Cutthroat sipped BWOs under tormented skies, while Deardorff storm-jumped his way downstream. Finally, something angry surrounded him and his two clients. He sunk oar blades into the flow and opened throttle through a tempest of marble-sized hail. Then fireworks erupted.

But we'd both seen enough of corporate America to realize that a lifetime spent living in it might not be worth the paycheck. A collaborative effort between the two worlds was inevitable, and after much deliberation our musings have molted. A bottle of Bud and a can of worms may have laid the foundation for pairing beer with bugs, but these are our contemporary favorites.

  • Forget The “Golden” State: Notes From The “Extreme Drought” State

    Tom Chandler
    20 Aug 2014 | 12:35 pm
    A team of biologists from UC Davis scoured the Sierras to measure the impacts of California’s “extreme” drought on fish, and the news was much worse than anticipated. Using notes from prior surveys, the team revisited habitats that supported sizable fish populations. What they found were little more than dry creekbeds: As we moved up the Tuolumne drainage and the creeks got smaller, the effects of drought became more evident. On Woods Creek at Harvard Mine Road near Jamestown, where previous surveys had found dozens of fish, we found only sun-baked bedrock strewn with dry…

The Cuyahoga has jumped its banks a few times this summer now, the ground is saturated. Akron flooded July 10th and after a week of sweltering sun and humidity, the cool down brought more rain and the Cuyahoga ran over the streets. On the far bank, a heron grunts. The river pushes back and forth against a log jam, a backeddy formed up around a flooded willow tree, water three feet up its trunk. Huge sycamores and walnut trees loom.

    Hayden, Silver, and Sun.. Photo: Zac Cassill Fly fishing for silver salmon is awesome.. At Alaska West, we are fortunate to have a great run of silvers each August and we look forward to their return every season. We target them on both single and double handed rods, surface and subsurface patterns, and in a multitude of water types. While most of the time fishing for silvers can be extremely fast paced, there are times when even silver salmon can get a little ‘finicky.’ As with most species salmon, bright sunny days is often the culprit and silvers are no exception.

Heck, we even use it to coat knots from time to time! When operating lodges in remote areas of the world, Aquaseal is liquid gold as far as we’re concerned and we go through our share throughout the season. However, with a six hour drying time, Aquaseal is not always the most convenient fix while out on the water. Sure, fixing a pinhole in your waders after a day of fishing and letting it dry over night is no big deal, but…

    11 Aug 2014 | 10:00 am
    The next time you go fly fishing and bring along $10,000 worth of photo gear here are a few tips to capture some images on the water. Well I don't encourage anyone to spend that kind of money for your photo gear, it would take away from all the money you should spend on fly fishing rods, but there are a few good tips in the video. Many of you do run around, wisely I might add, with some waterproof point and shoots while you fish. Adorama is a very good online camera store out of NYC. They also offer plenty of educational videos about photography on the YouTubes. It's not often you find many…

    Recently going through my mayfly photographs I found a nice set of pictures from the Paflyfish Spring Jam in 2010. The Green Drake (Ephemera guttulata ) hatch was in full swing that year and photographs of these mayflies was easy and plentiful. Most of the weekend was overcast and rain as normally forecasted for the Spring Jam. Emergers (subimigo) and spinners (imago) were not so much active during the day, but lined the sides of the streams in the hundred's of thousands. I am always torn between fishing and photography on days like this but glad put down my fly rod for a while and captured a…

    After Thursdays time on the beach we were both feeling a little tender on our shoulders where we should have re-applied sunscreen a lot earlier than we did, nothing serious but still a little too sore for the blazing midday sun so we elected to have an easy last day (all our Anglesey days are easy) and go for our walk after an early evening dinner. It was to be a day of ’lasts’. We did our last run before breakfast, the 6k loop along the Menai Straits and past the Sea Zoo, it was still hot even early in the morning but the run was great and set us up for a day of relaxing at the cottage.

    A ‘proper’ holiday in North Wales isn’t really complete until you’ve spent at least one full day lounging on the beach, no matter what the weather throws at you. Once more we were blessed with glorious weather during our two week stay on Anglesey so in a repeat performance from last year we did our ‘beach day’ on Newborough Beach. After the 10 minute drive (it took us longer to pack our picnic) we arrived at the car park just before 10am. The weather was fantastic with blue skies, sun scorching the marram grass sheaths sculptures and a slight breeze to keep…

    After a lazy morning we headed over to the headland between Aberffraw bay and Porth Cwyfan where we’d walked a few days earlier to try a spot of sea fishing either side of low water. When we got to the spot we thought would be great to float fish and bottom fish we found it impossible to get on to the ledge we’d spied so had a quick rethink and explore and ended up fishing from a different set of rocks, not ideal as I wanted to fish straight into Aberffraw bay but the weather was great, seas calm and it’s always worth a go. I was fishing at distance with pulley rigs to keep…

However since winning the trophy, the $500,000 check and the prestige of being a Forrest Wood Cup champion, Gagliardi has taken some undeserved hits to his reputation from fans taking one or two sentences from recap articles and speculating on how he didn’t show sportsmanship the last day of the tournament.

  • Fishing Dock Walkways with Topwater Lures

    20 Aug 2014 | 10:01 pm
    Some folks view boat docks as recreational platforms used for swimming, grilling and enjoying cold beverages on hot summer days. Bass anglers, however, are of a much different breed. When we look at a dock, suntan lotion and lounge chairs are the last things on our minds—we see a golden opportunity for giant fish catches. According to FLW Tour pro and dock fishing extraordinaire Bryan Thrift, fishing topwater lures underneath dock walkways is an incredible method for catching big, suspended late-summer bass. While other anglers methodically pitch and flip these manmade structures, he looks…

  • Having Trouble Catching Rainbow Trout This Summer?

    JRWFishing
    27 Jul 2014 | 7:04 am
    As I have said before, other than the dead of winter, there is no more difficult time of the year to rainbow trout that the hot summer months.  There are many reasons why this is true, but the most important in my experience is the fact that water temperatures often rise above the high end of the rainbow trouts ideal temperature range (61 degrees).  Once water temperatures start to climb above the 60 degree mark rainbows will become less and less active, thus making them much more difficult to catch.consistently catch Here is Northwest Montana where I live we have gotten lucky this…

    Other than the middle of winter when temperatures are well below most freshwater trouts' "ideal range", there may be no more difficult time of the year to catch trout than when the weather is hot. It is well known that all freshwater trout species don't care for hot weather and the main reason for this is that hot weather means high water temperatures and high water temperatures are very dangerous to trout. This is the main thing to remember when you are fishing for trout in hot weather, because causing them too much stress during a fight can often result in the trout not being able to…

    For people who have never worn a pair of polarized sunglasses while fishing a question that is often asked is why exactly it is that a pair of polarized sun glasses should be worn? I know this is a question that I used to ask myself all the time, right up until I actually purchased and used a pair of quality polarized fishing glasses. Since doing that, you would be hard pressed to find me on the water fishing without a pair of polarized sun glasses covering my eyes. The bottom line is that if your favorite style of fishing involves sight fishing in any way such as; bass fishing over spawning…

Below I will outline a few rules that the "average" rainbow trout fisherman might not be aware of, all of which will help him or her catch more trout. How is it that I am aware of these rules? Simply because I've spent the better part of thirty years on various rivers and lakes throughout North America fishing for these beautiful fish and in that amount of time have managed to learn a thing or two. In other words, if you are new to the world of…

    My Fishing Cape Cod

  • One Hell Of A Big Surprise…

    Ryan Collins
    19 Aug 2014 | 2:01 am
    I’ve been all sorts of pumped up about surfcasting after catching this 28 pound striper from shore last week. Nothing beats catching a big striped bass from the beach, especially when fishing under a bright full moon with no one else in sight. For me that is the apex of Cape Cod fishing. So when weather conditions and tides once again aligned, I dropped everything I was doing and got my butt back down to the beach. I felt I was in for a repeat of last week’s good surfcasting, and fortunately for me the fish cooperated in a very big way. Is It Just Me, Or Does It Feel Like Fall?

Someday soon I won’t rely on commercial fishing income to get by, but for now (love me or hate me for it) I commercial striped bass fish. Yet this week I needed solitude.

No we did not jig or plug for big stripers, but we did catch a ton of small bottom fish that kept me occupied and very engaged, despite my young age. In this post I want to share with you 8 steps for fishing the Canal with young children. However be careful because you just may get the young kids in your life hopelessly addicted to fishing – which is exactly what happened to me! 1)  Rig Up With Light Tackle Recently I went fishing with…
  • Cape Cod Tuna Fishing Report | In Search Of Footballs

    11 Aug 2014 | 2:01 am
    This Cape Cod tuna fishing trip began with a slight hiccup, when the boat engine would not start. However it was a simple fix and after a quick jump start we were good to go. I was fishing with MFCC member Ari Goldschneider on his 22 foot Seahunt center console. By 4:30AM we were departing the harbor, en route to the tuna grounds in hopes of trolling up a football size bluefin tuna or two. Sea conditions were a bit choppier than Ari and I had expected. There was a decent breeze blowing in from the northwest, but we both hoped it would die down once the sun peeked its head above the horizon.

    It was March. The  grass seeds were suspended high on tall bent stems, their weight barely sustainable in the heavy morning dew. Their greenness was still in them, but not for much longer.  A  pale duskiness was creeping into the veld from the base of each plant, and replacing the verdancy of mid summer. Heavy rain had swept across the upper reaches of the Ndawana that week, but it was not a summer rain. The weighty black clouds hung low over the quiet veld, and cast shadows that were cool. Brief spells of bright sun were warm, but failed to make us sweat, as we moved up the…

    I often find that a thermometer is a poor measure of temperature, in terms of our experience of the fishing day. Leaving aside the wind chill factor, which we all know well, a thermometer reading tells very little about what it feels like to be out. Just the other  morning, it was 13 degrees when I got up. On a winter’s morning, that is a very high overnight temperature, and one that on the face of it, should have the global warming guys saying “You see!”. But strangely it didn’t feel that warm at all. The thing is, that  as the day developed, the light remained dull from…

  • Rajeff On ECHO Glass Two Handers

    The other day I received an email from Tim Rajeff of ECHO Fly Fishing on the soon to be released Glass Switch and Spey offerings in early 2015 and I'll admit it's kind of neat to get the ego stroked with a mention of thanks for the input on the development of the ECHO Glass series but really it's even more exciting is to see a series of seven two handers made of fiberglass going from prototypes to final specs.  These are fly rods that many have been asking for and it's neat to see that Tim Rajeff listened.  I trust what Tim does with glass because he has such a background with it…

    Shane Gray of Graywolf Rods has been pushing out quite a few fly rods from the shop lately and this Ijuin-Rod four weight blank build is a good example of the work that he's doing right now.  I really like the unusual shaped Powell style cork grip and his finish work is flawless.  The taper of the Ijuin-Rod 7'6" four weight blank is considered semi-parabolic and the green of these blanks is just so striking.This fly rod is offered at a reduced price of $550 shipped worldwide.  Check out the Graywolf Rods Blog for more information.Check out the Graywolf Rods website for more…

    The landing net build continues with J Wood Fly Fishing and a lot gets done in this series of photos and narrative.  It's my hope that readers get as much out of these posts as I do.  It is really neat to see a craftsman at work. Thanks again to John Wood for taking the time to photograph his process and providing the narrative that is included as well.  Tomorrow we'll show off the finished net and on Friday, and through the weekend, there will be a contest to give this net away.With the bag lace holes drilled and the measure marks dowels installed it is time for the final…

    New content from Fish East Asia!  IT Monsters is set away from the hustle in a quiet part of Kanchanaburi. We left the hotel at 7an, and arrived at the backside at 7.20am Stephen had fished here before, but up until now IT Monsters had eluded me somehow. The banks were perfectly trimmed, and my first impression was ‘how come i have not fished here before, in all the time i have been coming to Thailand’. We soon met up with our fantastic guides Nok and Nui, who asked us where we would like to fish, and what species we would like to catch, very impressive!!! Both myself and…

    New content from Fish East Asia!  The Fish East Asia team set off for a days fishing at the mighty Palm Tree Lagoon. Mark perched up on the boards, and Stephen and Boy headed for the right hand bank, where some carp had been showing the previous day. Armed with two carp rods and a predator rod, it was not long before the lads were into bites. The laem ground bait was hitting the same spot time and again, and a steady bed of feed was being laid on each spot. Stephen and Boy decided to dispense of the predator rod and concentrate on the carp. Regular feeding and accurate casting was the…

    New content from Fish East Asia!  Up at 4.30am, I must admit I had to wipe the sleep from my eyes, and wait for the taxi to pick me up. We was soon on our way whizzing past Bangkok, missing all the traffic, and arrived in Ratchenburi at 8.30am. Tim and Benny were on hand to greet me, and this was the first time I had seen Tim in person, after countless telephone calls and messages. A quick cup of tea and the rods were cast out. Now I must admit I was a little rusty, after my health scare earlier in the year, and was intent on taking things easy. Well that soon changed, and the left hand…

    New content from Fish East Asia!  Nick Peat is a very very accomplished angler, who has caught many big species of fish throughout the world. When Nick asked us the best tides, and dates for a Stingray trip on the Meaklong, ‘Boy’ knew just the place and time to take him. Armed with two boats and a full team of guides Nick set off on a good tide, and it wasn’t too long before he had his first fish of about 90lb. We never weigh the fish as they are considered a endangered species on the rivers, and our work by the team is respected worldwide. When ‘Boy’ says…

  • 10 Reasons Why You Should Consider a Fishing Charter for a Bachelor Party

    Dajana J
    8 Aug 2014 | 7:38 am
    Are you or a friend getting married and considering a chartered fishing trip for the bachelor party? We’ve provided some reasons why we think it’s a good idea…. Let’s just state the obvious; you’re going to get in less trouble on a fishing trip as opposed to “other options”. Invest in a different kind of action. Gambling is great, but you’re chances of catching a big fish are probably greater than beating the house at Black Jack. Think of the sense of accomplishment you will feel after reeling in some big game. You will know the real size of the fish your buddy is talking…
  • Go Deep or Go Home: A Closer Look at Oil Rig Fishing

    Dajana J
    29 Jul 2014 | 11:09 am
    Looking for adventure in fishing? Well, look no more! Oil rig fishing is considered by many fishing pros as some of the “most exciting and best fishing in the world”. Here’s a closer look at one of our most thrilling fishing charters in the deep blue sea. Since the first oil rig platform positioned itself off the Louisiana coast in 1947, the oil rig population has grown to more than 3,700. So many in fact, that these oil rigs have essentially created a man-made reef, home to several different species of fish. Unfortunately, oil rigs often receive bad press no thanks in part to the 2010…
  • The Difference Between Inshore and Offshore Fishing

    Home Run Charters
    15 Jul 2014 | 12:57 pm
    For all the folks new to charter fishing, you may ask, “What is the difference between inshore and offshore fishing?” Well, no problem because we are here to help you understand! Of course, the main difference between the two is the depth of the water at the fishing location. In ocean or seawaters, inshore fishing is within a few miles from the shore. Estuaries and bays are popular inshore fishing spots as well. Offshore fishing is far from the shore, typically 20-30 miles out, in waters hundreds and thousands of feet deep. Other than fishing locale, there are six criteria that help…
