WATCH: Five Flies for September 2022 with Charlie Craven

Ivan Orsic / Sep 7, 2022

September is a month of transition. Days are getting shorter. The colors are changing. Temperatures are theoretically dropping (word on the street is that next week we're going to get a break from these unseasonably warm temps). With these shifts, comes blue-winged olives, streamers, and continued productive hopper-dropper fishing. For many of us around the shop, it's our favorite time of year.

In this month's episode, host Ivan Orsic and co-host Tanner Smith welcomed our LORD - LORD CHARLIE CRAVEN to the studio to talk about his flies, presentations, inspirations, theories and the like for the month of September and beyond.

As always, we answer a couple of commenter questions about rigging, bug choice, and fishing techniques. If you have a question about October fishing - leave a comment down below on the YouTube video. NEXT MONTH, our special guest will be Courtney Despos, so bring your best questions for our Director of Education. If we pick yours, you'll WIN a Trouts Prize Pack - including prizes from Rising Fish and Umpqua!

For the month of September, the Five Flies are available at our Denver location and online.
