Winter Bugs

December 13, 2013

It looks like this December cold snap is about to break. If you are new into winter fly fishing, here is a great overview by Orvis of local winter fly patterns that every angler should consider before heading out to a Colorado tailwater.  Here is a quick excerpt from guide Chris Barry:     

“Without a doubt, one of the best flies for the winter is the zebra midge. When the water turns cooler, the the majority of mayflies and caddisflies cease activity, which leaves the midge as the trout’s go-to meal. Pound-for-pound in the ecosystem, midges make up the main food source." – Chris Barry

Wading Saltwater Flats 101

December 9, 2013
Author: Will Rice

Sometimes the best lessons are the ones that sting the most.

Last year I was walking a flat with Captain Mike Hennessey just off the coast of Oahu.  We weren't far from Waiki Ki Beach.  This section of Hawaii has fairly extreme tidal shifts - when the water recedes the flats are barren and dry out in the sun.  A few hours later... water three or four feet deep submerge the flats.  It happens fast.  The game plan was to find bonefish on the tidal rise.  You could see them patrolling the deeper water, right on the edge of the large coral flat.  When the water was high enough it permitted just enough room for the fish to scoot up onto the flat where they would begin foraging in the nooks and crannies of the coral and sand for shrimp and crabs.
