Tying Tuesday: Hare's Ear Variant

The Hare's Ear is one of my most dependable patterns here in the Rockies. Trout love it, and the fly has stood the test of time exceptionally well. This new take on the classic pattern from Loon Outdoors is interesting. While I tend to be a bit of a purist when it comes to classic fly patterns, I can't help but think this unique Hare's Ear variant is worth...

Video: Tying a Deer Hair Midge

I'm a huge fan of new midge patterns, and this one from Barry Ord Clarke is pretty interesting. I wouldn't think of it sitting down to the vise myself, which makes it all the more intriguing. What do you think? Will this fly fish, and would you throw a few in your box?

Rent the Fly Fishing Film Tour

Normally, if you want to see the Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T) you have to find it playing at a local fly shop or theater near you. This year, though, you have the option to rent it and watch it from the comfort of your living room. Since the current pandemic makes gatherings impossible, the showrunners at F3T decided to get creative in how they deliver their...

Throwback Thursday: Old Time Fly Fishing

It's been a while since I've done a Throwback Thursday, so I figured now was better than ever to provide an escape from reality. Today's video is a personal favorite of mine that's been around for five years. It's not old nor vintage; rather, it's a modern look at what may have been in the fly fishing days of old. Footage from earlier than the 50s and 60s...

How to Water Haul

There are tons of different ways to cast a fly rod, and I'm a firm believer in learning as many as possible. You can't have too many tools in your arsenal, after all. This great video from Pete Kutzer over at Orvis is a must-watch as you prep for the spring season!

"Powell 150" Documentary Film Project

A year ago, Ben Kraushaar embarked on a daring 1,000-mile, 70-day river trip retracing John Wesley Powell's trip down the Green and Colorado Rivers. Accompanied by other river runners, Kraushaar wants to document the trip and the future of water in the American West. Today, he's asking for help to get the final funding he needs to finish post-production on...

Throwback Thursday: Bill Dance Bloopers

I know Bill Dance isn't a fly angler, but it's hard to watch his bloopers and not remember the similar situations I've been in. Not long ago, I slammed an old Winston 6'2wt WT in my buddy's car door. The tip shattered, and I still haven't gotten around to fixing it. Anyways, the point is - watch these Bill Dance bloopers, laugh, and at the very least, be...
