    Taught a winemaker friend of mine how to fly fish yesterday afternoon! Had a blast, as I haven't fished much since I started working at Total Wine. I fished a little, but it really was able getting Bill Grassie ready for his trip to Rock Creek next week. This was his first time fly fishing...

    Visited Nunnally Friday. Kind of a shitty day with low clouds, mist, rain, then more mist, a little more rain, and finally, some wind. Just perfect. Fish were just as have seen reported from Lenice, 13 to 17" and very healthy, Actively feeding on really, really small chironomids, but they...

    I hit the beaches both days this weekend rather then head to the 509 and increase the population over there which is making for shitty lake fishing. Super crowded conditions, with a total of three other anglers seen in about 12 hours of fishing. Totally unacceptable. ;) I knew two of the guys...

    I got up early this morning to try and make the high slack tide before sun up only to find a locked gate. By the time I made it down the hill all the action was basically over but I did see some nice fish, maybe BM, and some seals chasing them. Struck out at another beach nearby. I did see some...

    Made my first pilgrimage to Hawaii. It was mostly a family trip but did manage to squeeze in a little fishing. I only managed to land a couple of smaller barracuda and didn't get a pic of either one. Lei greeting at the airport We wanted a little of the Waikiki experience, we stayed two...

    “So, what are you going to do with all your free time when your retired?” was a (dumb) question that I was getting asked a lot my last year of working, here is the answer. Since I know mother nature has thrown curveballs at me many years in the past, I pulled my trailer over and stored it at...

    I played with the iBobber last week and it pretty much works as advertised. The little fish finder/depth recorder was given to me as a gift, so the price was right. I did have a few issues with it.. I found it hard to fish with one hand and operate the phone with the other, and it was also...

    My new favorite sport might actually be not catching bonefish. This is my second time on these windy flats and I am fishless once again but loving every minute of it for sure. I feel like I have it pretty dialed and I am seeing fish and making good casts but they are ghosts. Targeting reef fish...

    I decided to play hooky today after my fishing buddies noted it was to be a nice day and they were heading off to Lone. I tagged along and it was a good if unspectacular fishing day. I dragged around an olive bugger on a type 4 but got bored and went onto mids. Last time out a bloodworm tight...

    Went out today for an afternoon get out. ended up going 2/4 on resident coho, felt pretty good about it since it was my first time doing this fishery. All fish ended up eating a fly with a white marabou tail and pearl ice dub in a rubbing loop for the body. Tried a shrimp platter, squid pattern...

    My good buddy wound up with a rare weekday off work, so he called me up last night and wanted to fish. I looked at the tides and they were pretty lousy for today, and it was supposed to be a bit windy, but what the hell... Gotta fish when you can, and the only true bad tides are the ones you...

    Popular east side lake, excellent fishing Sunday. Beautiful weather too. Water was clear, slightly green, pretty cold but I forgot to take a temperature. Fish sampled had mostly daphnia, some chironomids, worms, and occasional damsel nymph. I caught fish under the indicator on a chromie...

    Gonna give this a try since I sponge so much information off you guys...I figure I owe some kind of entertainment. Used a great guide yesterday and managed to hook into a small one which broke off rather quickly. My guide mentioned that I might want to 'tone down' the trout hook set a little...

    Finally back on the water after almost 2 months. Wasn't excited about the forecast for sun but today was my one day to fish, and I managed to get into a few nice cutthroat, all nice and healthy plus chunky, if they were post spawn they didn't look like it, no sea lice of any kind. First fish...

    2018 has been extremely busy for me so far, and especially so the last couple of weeks. I have had so much stuff going on I just haven't got to fish a whole lot. I mean, I don't have it as bad as those Montana boys, as this was day number 19 on the water in 2018 by my count, but that's pretty...

    What a surprise. Mostly, we wanted to go for a walk in the woods by the river. We wondered, Should we string up a rod? Might as well, we decided. Not five minutes into casting into a deep, slow glide, my indicator dipped and I set into what felt like a decent fish. I ended up landing what is by...

    Saturday was my most productive day in the salt since I started fishing this past summer. I've been reading this forum religiously for the past 6 months and feel like it finally starting coming together for me this weekend. I can't thank this community enough! Now for the report….I got out to...
