Planning A Saltwater Fly Fishing Trip

November 29, 2013
Author: Will Rice

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  I am a MUCH better person to be around when I have a saltwater trip on the books.  For me, half of the fun about a trip to new and exotic fly fishing locations is the preparation, research and planning that goes into a trip.  Like a brown trout who can feel the winter approaching with the changing of the Aspens, the fall for me means that it is time to get a trip on the calendar. 

Last year around this time I was planning for Honduras and a return trip to Ascension Bay, Mexico. This year, I have my sights set on South Andros Island, Bahamas.

Whether it is bonefish in Belize, fresh water dorado in Bolivia, a permit mission in Mexico or monster migratory tarpon in Southern Florida, the prospect of having a saltwater adventure lined up for 2014 is something every fly angler should try to explore. Most international destination fishing adventures fall into two camps: all-inclusive guided trips or do-it-yourself excursions. Both approaches to piscatorial exploration have their advantages – pros and cons that can be weighed based on your situation.

How You Catch And Release Fish: It Matters

Here is an interesting article we came across last week about catch-and-release landing practices for steelhead on the Gink and Gasoline blog.  If what these biologists found out about the vulnerability of big BC steelhead has any overlap on what can happen to trout if they are not landed and/or released properly, it makes you think a bit.

Simms GORE-TEX - Waders and Jackets

November 21, 2013
Author: Will Rice

We had a great trip to Montana a few weeks ago.  One of the stops we made was to the new Simms factory located just on the outskirts of Bozeman.  As one of the only wader manufacturers who has a highly skilled work force designing and building GORE-TEX waders here in the United States, it was eye-opening to watch the entire wader construction process first hand and to learn more about the materials themselves.

If you have never planned a saltwater fly fishing trip before, you might be surprised that the research, planning and preparation that goes into the excursion is half the fun.  How-to, where-to, knots and rigging – all the pieces of the puzzle come together on the flats. Deneki Outdoors has a treasure trove of information on their site about fly fishing for bonefish on South Andros Island.  Between now and March when we depart to one of the most remote islands in the Bahamian chain, we will be sharing some of the more interesting and informative posts we come across - including this one on the perfect bonefish rig.
