    Spring Fly Fishing Hazard

    This is similar to another thread. I think it's a warning that needs to be emphasized. In a (I hope) short time Spring will start. We're all anxious to get out there and enjoy the tug. Keep in mind there is a danger that could easily kill you. Ice. Several years ago I was fishing the Missouri...

    Alaska fly fishing location advice

    I’ve been taking university/community groups to Missoula, MT 1-2 times a year since 2012. I love the location because there are several awesome rivers that our outfitter (Missourian Angler) can access. We stay in a downtown hotel and are walking distance to lots of great local restaurants. It’s...

    NFR Political divide between gear and fly fishing?

    After seeing a thread about the East-West divide of Washington state, I was curious as to whether there is a similar divide between fly fishing and gear fishing.

    The POINT of fly fishing is...

    Rarely, some veteran fly fishers, after a rich and satisfying career of connecting with many, many fish, have reached the point where they choose to cut the bends off their flies, and file the end of the wire smooth, as they fish on as long as they're able, with flies that cannot hook and hold a...
