    Trip Report Afternoon bike fishing trip with the kids

    My wife went backpacking with a friend this weekend and I wanted to think of something fun to do with the kids (4 and 6) to get us all out of the house. I vaguely remembered a washed out road along a stream from a trip years ago and thought it would be fun to go investigate. When life gives you...

    Chelan River Produces!

    Staying at Wapato Point in Manson, WA for a family vacation. Hit the Chelan River the past two mornings with great success! Yesterday I used a hopper pattern in the 100 degree weather, and got a number of hits reeling in 7 or 8 fish from one little run in the river within a 45-minute period...

    Sub Surface Feeding

    Hello all, Last night I took a trip over to Squalicum, and landed several nice bows just trolling around a bugger. I am still new to fly fishing, and have yet to learn many of the hatches and bugs that most trout around here feed on. All over the lake, trout were coming up and feeding directly...

    Trip Report Alaska Rainbow from earlier this year.

    This April my wife and I found ourselves in Anchorage for a few days. I had a chance to get out and swing for some big bows while she slaved away in meetings all day. Tough life I know, but someone has to do it, right? I met up with a fellow T.U. member and we floated a nice piece of water...

    The same hot July afternoon as the westslope, this pretty nice rainbow took the top nymph, a big stupid yuk bug. I thought I was just using the yuk bug to get the flashback down, but this was just before the shortwing hatch. The water was so clear I didn't expect anything to bite a stupid...
