    Trip Report The curse has been lifted- First fish on the new rod

    As some of you know I am a very amateur Fisher, and an even more amateur fly Fisher. I have caught plenty of fish on gear setups, but only a handful on a fly, none of the catches being on either of my two newest setups. For whatever reason there seems to be a minimum of a one month probation...

I’m especially interested in the Alpine...

    Ideas for getting more Fish & Wildlife Officers

    One consistent complaint I've heard since I started fly fishing 26 years ago is that we don't have enough game wardens in Washington State. I know that there is little chance of getting anything done through the legislature since they haven't provided enough money for WDFW to operate at current...

    Why Are Ocean Fish So Much Stronger?

    I can land a 2 lb trout on a 4 or 5 weight rod without much trouble, and I doubt it'll take more than a few minutes to land it. A 2 lb bonefish, on the other hand, will still pull into my backing on an 8 weight rod. Everything in or from the ocean seems to be considerably stronger than...

    Fighting a Fish

    This summer, my son & I went to a bass pond. While waiting for the evening bite, we pulled out our 3 & 4wt rods and fished/caught Crappie, Bluegill, & Perch. It was a blast, actually a lot more enjoyable then when the bass started hitting our 7 & 8wt rods. A couple of weeks ago, we were in...
