Chasing Southern Appalachian Brook Trout

Fly
Southern hospitality can entail many things. Sometimes it’s a made-from-scratch homemade meal, or maybe it’s a helping someone change a tire on the side of a two-lane highway. But sometimes, it’s sharing a special piece of water, far off the grid, where footprints from other anglers are almost nonexistent, and...

Successful Dry Fly Fishing Tactics

Fly
Presentation trumps fly selection. You’ll catch more trout with the wrong fly but the right presentation than you will with the right fly but the wrong presentation. Don’t get me wrong; having the right fly is important especially when a hatch tightens the trout feeding focus to a single prey...

ICAST 2022 – Show Recap + New Dealer Product Reviews

Another great ICAST in the books! It honestly feels like the last ICAST (2021) was just the other day, but we weren't complaining for the chance to get back to the Orange County Conventional Center in Orlando, Florida to see so many friends (old and new), and to show off...

Hooking Up! Poon Fever with the Mangrove Coast

Fly
Waking up and hitting the beach every morning with my setter is some- thing I know is really special. I see the Caribbean from my porch, and often see tarpon rolling from the nearby dock. I am immersed in the fly fishing guide community in San Pedro. I have a...

Rigging For The Salt by Ed Jaworowski

Fly
Experienced fresh water fly fishers venturing into the salt understandably have questions about leaders, connections, and knots. Although some big game species may require specialized rigging, striped bass, bluefish, bonito, false albacore, weakfish, redfish, snook and many other small to medium inshore species don’t call for anything terribly complicated. Depending...

Line Management with the Linekurv

Fly
If you’ve immersed yourself in the fly fishing literature or watched what seems like a never-ending series of ‘how to videos’, one topic that is almost never addressed is the issue of line management. This neglect is really quite surprising given the fact that managing one’s fly line is critical...
