Winter Fly Fishing in South Dakota

Kevin Woster, of the Rapid City Journal, penned a great piece about the fly fishing in South Dakota during winter. As an avid fan of winter fly angling myself, I really appreciated the angle with which Woster approached this story. And, he highlights a local fly shop in Rapid City, South Dakota, as well - something else I can get behind. Read all of...

Fly Fishing in Tasmania

If you've ever thought about heading Down Under for some fly fishing, you probably haven't thought about hitting up Tasmania. According to a press release from a Tasmanian official, the state of Australia is launching a big campaign to try and get anglers - specifically fly anglers - to come visit the island.

The Story Behind Jurassic Lake

By now, everyone has heard of Jurassic Lake in Argentina. It's the premier place for catching giant rainbow trout in South America, and perhaps the world.

Patagonia: Fly Fishing Middle-Earth

"Extending across Argentina and Chile, Patagonia offers blue-ribbon angling on both sides of the border. I chose to fish on the Chilean side, in the Aysen region, near the city of Coyhaique. That area is known for its combination of rivers and lakes, and is generally less windy than other parts of Patagonia (wind is kryptonite to a fly-fisher)." Jon Gluck...

The sport needs our help to continue, after all, and this is one way in which we can contribute. Which is why today I'm sharing this story from Forbes, about a great place in Canada to visit for giant pike. Give this story...

The Taimen of Siberia

Taimen are a fish on my bucket list, and I'm sure just about every other angler has them there, too. Taimen grow to immense sizes - according to Russian folklore, some weigh up to 200 pounds - but for Keith Rose-Innes, all he wanted was a fish over 6 feet long and denting the scales at 100 pounds. The story he wrote about his 17-year trip to find and catch...
