Posted another Mikey Wier video on CalTrout’s site, this one showcasing the in-the-throes-of-restoration Shasta River (note: this is the same stretch of the Shasta I wrote about here). This stretch of the Shasta is primarily a spring-fed river and it’s not only beautiful (watch the video; I dare you to say it’s not drop-dead gorgeous), [...]
Paul Mugo, owner of the Kenya Tyeing Flies Company, has sent me yet another amazing collection of his handmade flies. If you haven’t seen his work before you should definitely check out the two previous galleries of his fantastic flies. Show More Summary
This past Monday, fellow blogger Dave Wolak gave us some pretty solid advice for catching bass amidst the chaos that will ensue on many lakes and rivers across the U.S. during this holiday weekend. Though there aren't any largemouthShow More Summary
As many of you have probably heard, the hot news in the fly fishing industry is that Orvis recently purchased Ross and Scientific Anglers from 3M. Our buddy Louis from Gink and Gasoline put together a very intelligent write up on the subject – since industry gossip and commentary seem to be right up everybody’s [...]
I hear from Troutrageous that people love lists. Here’s a list of things my fishing partners should know about me when I storm into Florida next week. I can get a little intense. Not in an angry way, but in a talking-fast, animated kind of way. I was once described as “being like a little puppy,” all [...]

I know that the term for a skier who doesn’t have a clue what he is doing is a gaper, but what is the term for someone who doesn’t have a clue about fly fishing? LINK (via: MK Livin)
Today is Urban Angler's last day at their 306 5th Avenue address. They will be reopening uptown at 381 5th Avenue on May 31st. I still remember the first time I saw the Urban ad of some dude holding an absolute monster of a fish on the inside cover of one of my fly fishing mags. Show More Summary
I had planned to get stuff organized today, but that didn't happen because I took an overlong nap not getting up until 4:30PM. I didn't get the Trophy to the lake until 7PM. It ran just fine, but I didn't have GPS with to check my top...Show More Summary
A mix of salt and freshwater- See the fight against the PTTS, some solid redfishing from a SUP, and some HOT Skeena steelhead.
The sun came out and the shallows warmed and fish moved into them. Others held fast in the current rips, poised for ambush, and still others patrolled the drop-offs or took cover in the newly thickening weeds. The fish hit the flies of those who were there and the pics are for those who could not be.
What had been, up to recently, a phenomenal year of sight fishing for redfish has gotten considerably tougher the last couple weeks. The algae bloom which plagued our waters last year is making a comeback. There are still a few flats which are crystal clear but many of them are partly to mostly cloudy. On sunny days, [...]
This week in our vintage tackle contest we have a rather enticing-looking bass lure that belongs to Brycen Higdon, who found the bait while helping his grandparents clean out their storage unit. Brycen noted that he can't seem to figure out the maker. Show More Summary
Every month or so we like to run a list that ’rounds up’ our best/most popular/favorite posts on a particular topic. With ~1800 pages on our site we understand that it can be a little tough to find everything – hopefully these lists help! Today’s topic? Alaskan rainbow trout! 10 Favorite Posts on Rainbow Trout [...]
This Kombo multi-tool is a bonker, filet knife, gut scooper, and sharpener, all with an easy-to-grip handle. And just because it's plastic doesn't mean the bonking side won't pack a punch—three brass plugs have been inserted into the device's head to let you give a good, strong whack with ease. And it floats! LINK (via:Gizmodo)
