Fly Fishing from Scratch
“It’s just a small brown”
"It’s just a small brown” Last year I made the 10 hour trek to New York’s Salmon River. My feelings were mixed going into this trip. I had listened to story after story about how difficult these fish were to land and as you know, I’m still a newbie with a lot to learn so I was nervous and anxious. I had little to no expectations of landing a fish. This was more of a practice run of sorts for me. I remember standing in the river while the water rushed by me in my w

2018 Release A Breeder Club

The result has been a considerable decrease in the number of these large, old fish found in the population. Nature never intended it that way. Striped bass are the top predator

We decide that our shot at tarpon had passed and head to breakfast. It is there that we put together our plan to hit a canal that I had fished the year before.

BWO or Blue Wing Olive
BWO or Blue Wing Olive The first hatch I ever witnessed was on the West Branch of the Penobscot in May. Amazingly enough it wasn’t what I could see though, it was what I could hear! The sound of fish jumping out of the water. They were going crazy. It was a feeding frenzy! The sun hadn’t quiet come up yet so all I could do is listen. I remember asking what they were feeding on and being told blue wing olives. It wasn’t until the sun was up and I looked closely at the water that I could see th
