  • Tailing Redfish with Aaron Adams

    The Orvis Fly Fishing Guide Podcast
    4 Sep 2014 | 9:14 am
    In this week’s podcast I interview my good friend and fishing buddy Aaron Adams on tailing redfish.  As a marine scientist, director of Bonefish Tarpon Trust, and a great all-around saltwater fly fisherman he gives some great tips on finding tailing (or otherwise) redfish and how to select a fly and present it to them.  On this week’s Fly Box we concentrate more on freshwater fly fishing, and cover such topics as cracked fly lines, night fishing for trout, circle hooks for streamers, and pigtails above knots on light tippets.  Then I try, unsuccessfully, to resolve…

    Ken Morrish spent two months staring at a grasshopper he’d pinned to a block of wood. He alternated holding first the real thing and then his fly pattern against the light. His decision: The only way to duplicate a hopper’s unusual shape was with foam. “I backed into the fly,” said the 47-year-old trip planner, angler and photographer from Ashland, Oregon. “It was shape first and choose the materials second. Fortunately my hoppers have turned into my best sellers and supplied me a good identity.” Modern vernacular labels Morrish as a “signature/contract/royalty fly tyer.”…

  • Bristol Bay and Heavy Metal Fly Fishing

    27 Aug 2014 | 7:22 am
    This week we take a break from our typical how-to podcasts (don’t worry The Fly Box is in there this week, with tips on tippet material, keeping hands warm, and a what to pay most attention to in a fly-fishing class) and look at the passions of two very interesting people.  One is Scott Hed, from the Alaska Sportsman’s Alliance, with some really good news on the Bristol Bay issue and what you can do to finally put this to rest.  The other is an interview with the guitarist from a heavy metal rock band, what he gets out of fly fishing, and how he compares it to composing…

    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.

As usual, I answer your questions in the Fly Box.

    The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is currently holding an open comment period for a proposed development plan for the Salmonberry River Corridor, which holds some of the purest populations of wild, native salmonids in the Pacific Northwest. The Salmonberry river is home to endangered Coho salmon, winter steelhead, summer and fall Chinook salmon and both resident and anadromous cutthroat trout. The Native Fish Society urges anglers to take time to comment and help protect the Salmonberry River and its wild fish populations protected from development.

  • CSI: Greenback Cutthroat

    2 Sep 2014 | 2:30 pm
    Forensic science identifies Colorado’s true state fish The story of Colorado’s official state fish, the greenback cutthroat, would make one hell of an episode of CSI Trout. As it turns out, about half of the fish that scientists had been calling greenbacks actually have genes more similar to the Colorado Cutthroat subspecies. The discovery was the work of Jessica Metcalf, a young researcher from the University of Colorado, who used DNA testing and tissue samples from the 1850s to identify the genetic fingerprint of “purebred” greenbacks. About two years ago, Metcalf’s findings…

    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. The “Teeny Tip” as it’s called in the business. He…

    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.

    Huge wahoo and a whole rack of kingfish caught sportfishing today. It was a helluva day at sea today with an awesome catch of kingfish, bonitos and a monster wahoo on our sportfishing charter.  The kingfish and bonitos are all over the reef, every which way we turn we’re hooking into a mulitple fish at a time.  Trolling is the best method of fishing this time of year to catch the most fish possible.  It is a technique where the boat is moving the whole time and we drag a spread of lures behind the boat to look like a school of fish trying to escape.  It allows us to cover a lot of…

    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…

  • Catch Transitioning Crappie Now

    Josh Gowan
    18 Sep 2014 | 10:01 pm
    The transition from summer to fall may be the toughest time of year to catch crappie. Anglers have to be extremely mobile and tactically adaptable to any situation. Crappie become nomadic and are unpredictable from day to day during this period, but with the right knowledge and more importantly the right outlook, you can still fill the cooler. The key to catching crappie during the summer-fall transition is learning to deal with the dissipation of the thermocline on your body of water, and few anglers are better at this than Kyle Schoenherr. Schoenherr owns and operates All Seasons Guide…

    Archer fish are the sharpshooters of the animal world, capable of hitting prey from metres away with pinpoint accuracy. The fish, Toxotes jaculatrix, which live in mangroves in southern and southeast Asia, achieve this by compressing their gill covers, and forcing water through a 'gun barrel' made by their tongue and the roof of their mouth.

    All content copyright Round Valley Fishing Zach Merchant holds a 6.1-lb Channel Catfish caught at Round Valley Reservoir. Catfishing at Round Valley is generally a lot slower than Spruce Run, however the few that you do get are almost always bigger than the fish you would get on average at Spruce. I’ve found that the best baits for catfish at Round Valley in my experience are live Shiners or Herring, dead Herring, and pieces of shrimp. When targeting catfish at Round Valley, I don’t usually hit the water until around 10:00 p.m. or so since for the most part the catfish there seem…

    The title of this post is a but misleading as the trout in question would have "gotten away" no matter what seeing as how I don't kill any of the trout that I catch, but nonetheless this large rainbow released itself before I had the chance to land, admire, and release it.  In any case, as I mentioned in the last post I was having a good afternoon on the water, catching and releasing multiple rainbow trout that ranged in size from 9 to about 15 or so inches.Now I'm not sure if it was because the fishing trip was going so well or because of the fact that I'm really out of practice and…

  • 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…

And on a hot dry September day, it was anything but that. The water was clear, but it was undeniably sluggish, and there was a furry brownness to the underwater rocks.Water limped between pools, rather than gushed, and nowhere did one see water droplets thrown into the air by the force of the stream,…

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.

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…

    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.
