Useful Tandem Fly Combinations

Two Dry Flies When fish are feeding on very small flies, it can be difficult to see your tiny imitation on the water. In such situations, tie on a big, bushy fly, and then add the smaller fly on a 24- to 30-inch dropper. That way, the big fly serves as a locator and a strike indicator — when a fish hits the size 22 fly, the big ol' size 10 fly will...

Deep Thinking

SEVERAL YEARS AGO, I hosted a group of eager fly fishers for a week of bonefish and permit angling in northern Belize.

Schweitzer: Fly Fishing RMNP During and After Runoff

It's no secret that Rocky Mountain National Park experienced a record snowpack in 2011. In some areas, the white stuff was almost too deep to measure, and for some time, unwilling to melt.
