The latest news and noteworthy happenings from across this wonderful industry we call FLY FISHING
When the staff at Trouts Fly Fishing attended the IFTD show in Las Vegas we were able to catch the Drake Magazine’s 2013 Video Awards. There was new stuff… old stuff… and most importantly, videos that you voted on.

Scott Willoughby from the Denver Post has written about another great river conservation/rehabilitation success story here in Colorado. Here’s a sound bite:
“Perhaps the most remarkable thing about stream restoration is its immediacy. Take the pollution out of the river and fish can survive. Add some structure, dig out a few pools, shore up eroding banks, and the fish move into the improved habitat almost instantaneously. It happened last spring on the South Platte at Carson Nature Center. And it happened on the Arkansas last week.”
Our friends at the Wigwam Club - which is located on the South Platte River - have a really unique seasonal employment opportunity.
The analogy between big game fly fishing and big game hunting may be a bit tired, but it holds very true. Off the coast of San Diego CA this past weekend, Alex Landeen, Conway Bowman, and I saw both extremes of this paradigm, while hunting for one of the most aggressive predators in the sea with fly rods.
