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...

Legendary fly fishing expert and guide Hank Patterson is back once again, this time with irresistible wisdom concerning the making of fly fishing films. If you want to make an award-winning fly fishing film - which of course debuts on the film tour circuit - then you need look no further than Hank's endlessly helpful documentary. And who are we to tell the...

Throwback Thursday: Gadabout Gaddis Fishing in Maine

The old classic film Fishing USA was released in 1969, starring a fellow by the name of Gadabout Gaddis. With a name like that, you're sort of destined for the hallowed halls of fishing fame, aren't you? This is a clip from that Fishing USA, where Gadabout flies through wild Maine in search of brook trout and salmon. Take a look at the old fiberglass...

Tying Tuesday: Gartside Splitwing CDC Cripple

Jim Misiura is one of my favorite fly tiers for a variety of reasons, a prominent one being that he doesn't gravitate towards too many flashy patterns. He sticks to the classic, murky world of mayflies, caddis, and soft hackles, that don't necessarily have the highest "bin appeal" but in my experience, catch plenty of trout. His most recent video is below ...

Movie Monday: Arctic Char

Cortney Boice and Derek Olthius made a splash a few years back with their award-winning film "Seriously North." They managed to go back north last year, chasing more giant, gorgeous arctic char. Luckily for us, they documented their journey again, and we have this great flick with which to kick off our Monday. So sit back, relax, and enjoy five minutes of...

Build your Own Fly Tying Desk

If you're the DIY type, and you don't already have the fly tying desk you've always wanted, then this video is definitely for you. This video comes to use via the folks at Beyond the Fly, and it's a fun way to look at reusing an old table to build something really useful. If I ever get around to building the tying desk I want, I may just have to put...
