It's DECEMBER and winter is HERE, especially up in the mountains. We're here for it. Winter's arrival means midges are generally going to be the primary fare for trout throughout the Colorado Rockies. That certainly doesn't mean that streamers, blue wings, eggs, and attractors can't get the job done, but midges will consistently produce as we head into winter.
In this month's episode, host Ivan Orsic and co-host Tanner Smith welcomed the one and only Landon Mayer into the studio to talk about flies, presentations, rigging, and the like for the month of December and beyond. In addition to talking about fishing for December, we talked about golden dorado in Argentina with our friends from Set Fly Fishing.
Make sure you stayed tuned through the entirety of the episode, as Landon graciously dropped a holiday giveaway of his most recent book - Guide Flies. Five copies are up for grabs!
As always, we answer a couple of commenter questions about rigging, bug choice, and fishing techniques. If you have a question about January fishing - leave a comment down below on the YouTube video. If we pick yours, you'll WIN a Trouts Prize Pack - including prizes from Rising Fish and Umpqua!
For the month of December, the Five Flies are available at our Denver location and online.
