Fly Fishing from Scratch
A Newbie of All Sorts
Sorry for the long absence folks. Things here at the Riverhouse have gotten crazy! Guide season is in full swing and the bunkhouse has a revolving door of guests. The flies we tied in the off season are now water logged, chewed up and in great need of repair. Fly lines are beat up and tips are broken off fly rods.

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!
