    Anyone Seen This Ad?

    I get a lot of fly fishing based ads during my travels on youtube. I'm sure we all do. It consumes a lot of us. I am always excited to see women fly fishing, and even more so to see a woman cast a spey. I don't know of anyone who has the attitude that they don't belong. When I saw this ad my...

    NFR Had to say goodbye to my pal this morning

    Well, it was time. Had to say goodbye to my buddy this morning. The buddy that every afternoon would get up on the couch, put his paws up on the back so he could watch out the window and wait for me to get home. Odie the Vizsla was an awesome companion, hunting dog and family member. He was...

    I Want This Nurse Heading HHS

    I nominate this nurse to be Secretary of Health and Human Services. Its peak flu season. The CDC is saying the vaccine is less than 20% effective. I ran into a guy I barely know at CostCo. He sneezes into his hand and then wants to shake mine. I fist bumped him and then headed to the bathroom...

    Tell me where I should fish this weekend

    Little thrown off as far as where I should fish this time of year. Rookie fly fisherman, and not opposed to some spin casting, and or sinking some worms. I live in Seattle. Willing to drive 2 ish hours. Weather conditions don’t matter to me, except high windows are no bueno. I have a...

    We Know This is NOT a Steelhead... or "Thank You, Preston!"

    Out of politeness and respect towards some other fly tying/fishing forum located somewhere else in the greater Internet, I will not name names. However, I must ask, how is it that folks east of the Rockies and/or the Mississippi seem to think Rainbows and Steelhead are either different fish or...

    This site.

    I thought that this was a fly fishing forum. You don't read about anybody fishing any more. It's just NFR threads and bull shit threads. I just get tired of all the crap on here about non fishing. Just because I quit for the year everybody else can go do it. There is more on FacePuke about...

    foul hooked a whitefish and thought it was a steelhead. Which is funny because i'm known for hooking into steelhead and saying "that's not a steelhead..."

    My love of this "skinny" river has finally paid off.

    A couple of days ago I wanted to beat the heat by spending the day on a little river catching dinks and exploring farther than I had been before. After 5 miles of hiking I was on the water by 0930 and back to what I love the most...walking the river and fly fishing. I've put about 8 full days on...

    Small-stream westslope cutt movement & activity at this time of year?

    I had an interesting experience yesterday evening (July 31st) fishing a very small stream on the east slope of the Cascades above 3,000 feet. When I was there for the first time eight days earlier, I was catching a pretty little westslope cutt (or five) in every likely-looking pool and pocket...

    What is this fish called???

    Caught a bunch of these on the Methow this weekend. The closer to the Columbia river, the fewer trout and eventually I was only catching these. I cant seem to find out what they are anywhere. They don't seem to have teeth, or much teeth, they have scales, but the upper portion of the fish feels...

    NFR How did this explode? Any electricians out there?

    So we came back from vacation Saturday and the plugs weren't working in my boys' bedroom. Then we found this outside the house along their wall. The breaker in the garage was tripped. Did a slug climb in it and explode? Was the plug faulty? Scary. Glad my house didn't burn down.

    WTF? 95 degrees this Saturday??

    Okay, 95 is too hot to fish for most trout and even too hot for warmwater fishes. It takes me an hour to drive to a decent trout lake and I might get a few hours of fishing in before the temps rise too far but to drive one hour to fish for two or three hours doesn't seem practical. So... I...

    Does anyone know what this rod is for?

    My neighbor showed me this rod. It was his grandfathers. Its a 9 section 14 foot rod. It has either Japanese or Chinese markings. I will attach 2 photos which I hope you can zoom otherwise you can't really see the rod very well. It has flyfishing guides. I thought it may be a squid rod but I dunno.

    So here I am, locked in a hotel room with an uncanny South African fish assassin. We are tying tube flies with pre made polar bear brushes, and rhea, and tinsel. They kick the shit out of any fly I've ever tied, or fished. These are "April's". They weigh almost nothing, have a very low...
