If you are planning a do-it-yourself-trip and leaving the borders of the United States, planning and research is essential. The internet can be a great place to begin your research and perhaps one of the timeliest sources of data. Figuring out the right questions about adventure travel is the easy part. Seeking out the right answers from a credible source is the challenge. It’s just like putting together the pieces to an intricate puzzle – but first you have to find the pieces because they didn’t come in the box.
With only two months left in the year, Trout's Fly Fishing and fishpond put our heads together and figured out it was a great time for another photo contest. A few months ago we ran the CO SLAB contest for images of fish caught here in the great state of Colorado. This time around, we’re opening it up to anglers and species across the nation, we’re going to use instagram...and you have the chance to win a brand-spankin'-new Westwater Sling Pack.
Like it or not, it is that time of the year again. Many Colorado and other western state anglers are hanging up and drying out their waders and winding down their trout season. Thoughts of standing on wet rocks in cold rivers begin drifting towards visions of warm sands, distant lands, umbrellas drinks, and exotic species. If you have been kicking around the idea of taking a trip outside the borders this winter or spring, here are a few tips from the professionals at Fly Water Travel to get your trip planning started.
