    9 Oct 2014 | 12:58 pm
    It's not all about the Gorge and Black Canyon MENTION THAT YOU'RE PLANNING A TRIP to Colorado's Gunnison River, and a likely response will be something like, "Oh, cool—are you fishing Black Canyon or floating the Gorge?" Which makes perfect sense. After all, between the famed salmonfly hatch and national park status of Black Canyon, and the horse-pack/ rafting reputation of Gunny Gorge, it's hard to imagine a flyfisher having not heard of the Gunnison proper. But what about the upper Gunnison, near Crested Butte? Never heard of it? Join the club.

It starts as a spark, then a faint flicker of vermilion on the landscape. Soon it will grow and undulate, slave to the movement of air.

    To find the fish, follow the butterflies In March and April, depending on where you live on the East Coast, the first broods of monarch butterflies hatch from their chrysalis (a cocoon to you and I) and enjoy a short two- to six-week life span. They do what butterflies are best at: they flit around, eat flowers, look pretty, avoid elementary schoolers with nets, and dodge feisty birds. They will follow an irresistible pheromone-scent trail, find some butterfly love, mate, lay eggs on a select milkweed plant, then die. From these eggs, a second generation of monarchs emerges in May and June,…

By fall he’d raised 77 steelhead to his fly on Oregon’s famed North Umpqua River, landing about half of them. (Spencer keeps meticulous notes.) Yet there was a problem. Of the fish he’d landed, three had died—two of them wild. He’d also once brought in a steelhead eyeball on his hook.

    There is a lot of specialized gear available - fishing tents, ridiculously short rods, gas-powered augers, sleds, ice scoops, propane heaters and expensive lures - but the fact is, a beginning angler can get by just fine with a 5-gallon bucket, a limber trout rod, a slotted cooking spoon for removing ice from the hole, a hand auger and a hook baited with maggots, fish eyes or a piece of worm. Lawn chairs add comfort, but a 5-gallon bucket will suffice, and it can also be used to carry necessities.

    5 Dec 2014 | 11:16 am
    Nice dolphin just caught on our sportfishing charter What a terrible week for weather and what a spectacular week for fishing.  Stormy skies and rough seas made the fishing difficult for us this week, but those brave anglers who went out there had some of the best fishing action we’ve had in Fort Lauderdale for some time.  The strong east winds are blowing the dolphin in close, all the way into as shallow as 80ft of water.  Even our drift fishing trips are catching them.  Lots of nice, gaffer sized dolphins are scattered and biting good on the reef.  Lately, it’s seemed, the…

    Nice catch of dolphin on the Mary B III - 32 keeper dolphins It was a great day for fishing today on the Mary B III.  The dolphin were snapping in 350-400ft of water today, just a mile and a half off the Fort Lauderdale beach.  The morning trip was good, but the afternoon was even better.  We started the morning drifting on the reef, picking up a few snappers and some other assorted bottom critters (grunts, triggers, porgies).  A few boats just outside of us were catching some scattered mahi-mahi, so we decided to go give that a try.  We went out to 350ft of water and set up on a drift.

    Kyle Shea
    13 Dec 2014 | 6:00 am
    That looks like enough line.. Photo: Kyle Shea. When fishing for bonefish from a flats skiff, it’s common practice to strip a generous amount of fly line off of your reel onto either the deck, or better yet, the floor behind you as you hold the fly in your non-casting hand. We call it the ready position, but in case you’re not sure what we mean, check out our post on it, here. Or, check out our post on a more advanced ready position, here. One thing we see a lot of at Andros South are anglers hopping onto the bow of the skiff and stripping off nearly their entire fly line onto the…

    Trout tickling is the art of rubbing the underbelly of a trout using fingers. If done properly, the trout will go into a trance-like state after a minute or so, and can then easily be thrown onto the nearest bit of dry land. Trout tickling has been practiced for many centuries. It is mentioned in Shakespeare's comedy Twelfth Night, where it is used as a metaphor for bamboozlement by Olivia's servant Maria, who is about to play a vengeful prank on the pompous steward, Malvolio:   Close, in the name of jesting! Lie thou there,   for here comes the trout that must be caught…

    Peter Laurelli teases his latest effort. SIFF is an acronym for Surf & Inshore Fly Fishing. The SIFF series has been a ongoing project of trying to capture the feeling of the moments spent fly fishing the inshore waters in the Northeastern US and beyond. There is no goal or story, but to build a body of work through which I can remember and share my adventures for years to come. SIFF14 is the sixth edition of the series. The full version of SIFF14 will be released in mid-February.

    With water temps in the 50s and air temps in the 30s, who wants to get out and fish? Better think again!Winter is the best time to catch big bass as long as you are patient enough and fish slow enough.  Caught these 2 bass within minutes of each other in a ditch using a 3/8 oz scrounger jig head with a white ice zoom fluke slow rolling it as slow as I could.Remember to bundle up when going out because its cold out there but the bite is still hot!

    So, I have been fishing when I get the chance between school, clinicals, and work. It seems like the water has been turning over forever lately but the topwater bite is pretty good, at least for the spotted bass (not the stripers yet!). I was using a Zara spook in blue shad color in 70 degree water temp on the chattahoochee river trying to get the stripers to blow up on it and caught this little spotted bass! Conditions were a little windy (its fall) and air temp was in the 50s.I will keep you Informed of my fishing situation,  stay tuned!

    I tidied my tying desk this evening, as I do once in a while. The maid normally remarks favourably when I do this, since she is not allowed to touch. I think the abandon with which I toss around dead birds and animals gets to her. Thing is, when the desk is tidy, I can actually lock the thing, as my brother intended when he made it for me.   I have to say though, that I was a little worried. I was worried that it would not close. This anxiety stemmed from the fact that I have been on a long steady acquisition phase. I hadn’t realised it, but I have been collecting again (did I ever…

    It really is a terrible thing to have problems that keep you up at night. Just last week I sat down to tie up a few halo hackle, Klinkhamer style things with grizzly hackle. No I don’t have a name for them. This whole halo hackle concept is a wonderfully South African idea bank, that has been brewing for a while, with several variants around. I seldom tie a batch of flies the same as the last, and each time I fiddle with the pattern, so don’t ask me to name them. Suffice it to say they have a cute orange thing on top to aid my eyesight, a bum that trails in the water to wiggle at the…

It is infamous for its spine protrusion on its head that has a lighted tip that flashes on and off that effectively serve as bait for its prey. The light attracts suitable prey to swim closer, which will then be snapped ferociously by the angler’s sharp teeth and overly wide mouth.

    One of the common types of fishing method is the bass fishing. Most of the bass fishes can be found in salt and bayou waters. You can also find them in streams, ponds, reservoirs, and lakes. If you want to be successful in bass fishing, what you need to do is to be aware of the places where these fishes can be found. However, there are several factors that could affect the bass habitat such as weather, water level, condition of the water, and the food availability. There are also the three essential elements that must be present in order for a bass fish to survive: cover, oxygen and foods.
