Fly Fishing Report: Switch and Spey Clinic

April 16, 2014
Author: Will Rice

Saturday was our first Intermediate Clinic of the 2014 season and focused on switch and spey casting techniques for both Colorado trout and salmon or steelhead for the traveling angler. The Lower Blue is flowing at a higher-than-average level and this created the perfect scenario for switch rods.  The weather was warm with some clouds and the river flows 710 CFS with off color clarity.

Gooned At The Lagoon: Part II

Mosquito Lagoon just a the sun begins to rise

When we left the dock at 5:30am it was dark out – pitch black.  My guide, Captain John Turcot had approached from the south of Mosquito Lagoon and I could hear the whine of his Hell’s Bay skiff for a good two minutes before he reached me.  As I watched him approach under the stars I could see that he held a hand torch to navigate the small creeks and cuts that riddle this inland waterway.  We were getting a “O’Dark Thirty” start to chase redfish.

Kick’in it on the Big Horn - a Photo Essay

Fishing trips are a special thing.  The utter simplicity of walking away from your day to day life to focus on nothing more than fooling a fish to eat your fly.  A time when the biggest decision you have to make is between 4X and 5X leaders, and what kind of meat you're going to throw on the girll that night.  Is it a Makers night, or maybe should we throw ourselves a curve ball and bust out that bottle of Knob Creek?  Awe yes, fishing trips are a special thing.

My most recent adventure took me North to Big Sky Country to fish the famed Big Horn River.  This river has always been a personal favorite of mine, and for more reasons than the absurd fishing that always seems to come with every visit.  This river is a trout factory, and it just so happens to be located in an area void of the conveniences of modern life slowly adopting some modern conveniences (cell phones actually work in Fort Smith now).  Eat, Sleep, Fish, Repeat.  Yes, a recipe for a World Class Fishing Trip indeed.

Saltwater Gear Review: RIO Bonefish Fly Line

April 11, 2014
Author: Will Rice

What We Say

I’m a big believer that having the right saltwater fly line matters. I’ve had lines that were too subtle and light which made casting in the wind difficult.  I’ve also had lines that were great to cast in the wind but when they hit the water it was like a bomb exploding – and bonefish don’t like bombs exploding close by.
