What’s Your 2014 Resolution Fish?

January 9, 2014
Author: Will Rice

Here is a pretty interesting post from our friends over at Field & Stream Fly Talk

“This year I've decided that I want to do a "double-10." I want to catch a 10-pound brown trout, and at 10-pound rainbow trout, both on the fly. But here's the rub: no stockers! Only wild fish count. And only North American fish, no freak chasing in South America.” – Kirk Deeter

The Things They Carried: Argentina

2013 was a fairly big year of travel for Trouts Fly Fishing.  2014 will be a big year again for the shop.  Tucker Ladd and his wife Whitney are kicking things off a bit early with a fly fishing trip to Argentina.  Here is a quick spotlight on their pre-trip activity and travel plans.

"For this particular adventure I worked with the guys at Damonte Outfitters, a fly shop and guide service located in San Martin De Los Andes in Argentina," said Tucker Ladd.  "They put together a weeklong fishing package that is designed to keep my wife happy, but also allow us to experience trout fishing in Argentina.  For our week of fishing, we’ll be staying at La Casona Del Alto Lodge, which will give us the opportunity to fish a variety of rivers and lakes located around San Martin..."

Wading Saltwater Flats 101

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.

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.
