Made that trout all the sweeter!

Yesterday was roasting hot and last night was warm. It was so hot that I thought I was going to blank at one point. As it was I managed a nice plump trout from a tiny bit of pocket water. It was beautifully spotted, hundreds of them tightly packed along its body. Not the typical […]

Hot Hot Hot !

Hot, very hot….not the fishing but the temperature. Some trout rising, didn’t have a clue what to. At this little spot there was around 4 trout going at it like crazy. What the hell, they refused everything I tried. Additionally there was the insult of sipping flies around my artificial. Eventually I took a couple […]

Pretty much anything in life….

A site watch out for !

You know, this just happens to be the longest running personal blog dedicated to fly fishing on the net. I remember when I started this I had a good hunt around and could not find any others. I mean, others spoke about fishing but also had a fair chunk of other stuff as well. Since […]

Synopsis A popular sportswriter returns to his first love, fly fishing, in this wryly crafted reflection on friendship, getting skunked, and other musings sketched against the backdrop of the Colorado foothills and British Columbia. Reprint.

Action Stations: Dry Fly Attacks

So there was a definite three pronged approach to the Kelvin today. Alex was fishing his favourite stretch, Mike was fishing up at his end of the Kelvin and I decided to have a bash at one of the tributaries. It has been a windy, showery day and it has been raining on and off […]

Exiting stuff with the dry fly!

I think the most exiting thing that can happen when dry fly fishing is when you see the trout coming up to take your fly. The last say I was out fishing on the Kelvin I was casting downstream to a trout that I had seen rise, I was getting a drift of just a […]
