Tom Bie from the Drake Magazine just stopped into Trouts to get geared up for his trip to Christmas Island.  He’ll be chasing giant trevally and probably seeing a ton of other exotic saltwater species.  We thought this would be a pretty good time to share the Drake’s latest photo contest with the Trouts contingent.  The contest is called "The Big Year Contest".  Here’s how it works, courtesy of our pals at the Drake...

I could see the big tail standing straight up out of the water from almost a quarter mile away.  The fish had to be huge.

“You see the fish now?” asked Julian Cabral, our guide and host at the Whipray Caye Lodge in Southern Belize.

“I can see it,” I said.  I could feel my heart rate picking up already.  I tried to take a deep breath.

How To Build A Dry/Dropper Rig

May 7, 2014

The Dry Dropper Rig is a very useful rigging system here in Colorado and much of the Rocky Mountain West.  One of the main benefits of this rig is that you get to explore two very different sections of the water column – the surface of the river as well as sub surface depths. It is a great set-up to use if you are not sure where fish are feeding and it is also works if fish are taking bugs on the surface and deeper in the water column.  The best part of this rig: in addition to being effective, it is very simple and quick to tie.
