"Fly Fishing Southern Wyoming - My Last Day (Part 6)"

"I'm Fly Fishing Southern Wyoming on the final day of this trip. This is part 6, of my Fly Fishing Wyoming series. I was super excited to find lots of small streams in the area but had to stay high in the elevation because of the rising temperatures and low water in the area. Had to change locations several times until I found a stream that was safe to...

"October Trout"

While July may be a month for tall glasses of lemonade and August a time for corn on the cob, melted butter dripping down the sides, September is a month of transition. Summer may be over, but fall has yet to truly begin. Little rain falls during September and the air is often still. The trout of Bonnie Brook remain languid in water as skinny as a young...

Editor's Note: This is the third article in our series on fly fishing conservation.  This series appears with the support of Swift Fly Fishing, makers of Epic Fly Rods.

"Secrets to Share"

I haven’t seen a fish in Bonnie Brook for nearly three weeks. They’re there, these wild trout, retreating to their secret places, much too skittish to take a fly in the thin water as high summer approaches. I could drive to the salt, cast heavy streamers to impossibly large fish, or make the long drive to one of the tailwater fisheries, where cold-water...

"It's Been a Tough Few Months"

It’s been a tough few months—a virus we can’t seem to control, economic worries, social unrest across the country, and a citizenry as divided as it has ever been. These are the thoughts running through my mind as I turn up the logging road and head north. Along the sides of the road, in between spruce and pine, a few maple saplings are already turning...

The Beauty of Classic Wet Flies

My journey in pursuit of trout with the fly began over 40 years ago with a new fly rod and instructions to cast and drift a fly. What a gift that was. The woods and waters of Pennsylvania, the Appalachian Mountains and beyond have brought a life of admiration for the wilderness, forests, wildlife, and a thirst for “what lies beyond the next bend in the...
