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...

The Only Nymph You'll Ever Need

McFly Angler - a popular YouTube channel featuring fly fishing tips and tying videos - put this up a while back, but I'm just now finding it. The title alone was enough to pique my curiosity. While I don't agree that it's the only nymph you'll ever need, I do think this pattern has a place in just about anyone's fly box.

Throwback Thursday: Utah's Green River

I grew up tying flies out of Jack Dennis's Western Trout Fly Tying Manual and have since been able to chat with Jack about his life spent fly fishing. Recently, Jack posted a bunch of old videos online - including this gem from sometime in the 80s, on Utah's Green River.

How to Properly Catch and Release a Bonefish

It's that time of year when the cabin fever drives most of us to pine for the warmer months and their accompanying adventures. If you're looking at a trip for bonefish at all this year, you're probably planning it now. That's where this video from the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust - published by Orvis - comes into play. It's a great primer to get you ready...

Fly Fishing on Top of Mount Kenya

Africa is increasingly becoming a popular angling destination - thanks in no small part to the Animal Planet show River Monsters - but this piece from CNN makes Africa seem even more alluring for the weekend angler. It's a bit long, but take the time to watch through this entire video. It's incredible.

How to Use a Float Tube for Fly Fishing

Float tubing is one of the most effective ways to cover lakes and ponds, especially when fly fishing for trout. They open up a whole new world if you're willing to pack one into the high country. There's one lake I love that sits about 8,000 feet above sea level, and is about a 1.5 mile walk in. The hike isn't too bad, but it's cumbersome with a float tube...

Movie Monday: The Best of Labrador River Fishing

It's that time of year when we start planning trips, if only to ward off cabin fever. It's been a cold, tough winter here in the Rockies, and I find myself dreaming of high-country adventures far more often than usual. I reckon you're in a similar situation. So, take a break from work and the detritus of regular life, and watch this brand-new flick from The...
