Big Update on Colorado Trout

By: Sep 25, 2012 | Author: Tucker Ladd
Our friends over at Fly Talk just posted this story about greenback cutthroat trout and we found it pretty interesting.  What do you think about it? "After years of speculation and concern, fish biologists (and anglers) who have endeavored for decades to restore the native greenback cutthroat trout--Colorado's state fish, native to the South Platte River drainage--have learned the truth about the status of this iconic species. I'll start with the bad news." "All of those...

Airflo Ridge Clear Tropical Fly Line Review | by Louis Cahill

By: Mar 23, 2012 | Author: Tucker Ladd
There hasn't been a lot of new and inovative products to come about in the fly line category since the debut of the Sharkskin Fly Line by Scientific Angler a few years back.  Ultimately, there is only so much you can do to change the taper, color or make-up of a fly line to make the fly fishing industry go "WOW".  This is particularly true in that no many new fly lines actually aid the angler in catching fish.  All of this changed in 2012 with the debut of the Airflo Ridge...

Having been a fan of Rio's fly lines for many years, the Rio Gold and Rio Grand fly lines are fantastic.  Upon inspection of "line profile" I decided this is what I needed, a long body and front taper, wrapped around a extremely supple core.  I thought to myself that this thing should place a #16 Royal Stimulator into a 6" wide feeding lane with pinpoint accuracy, which it does...perfectly.
