spey casting tips
When was the last time you listened to a podcast or interview that really moved you to do something?  Maybe it was a video that convinced you to actually get out and take action?  How about something as simple as Spey Casting Tips? I am obviously a little weird and extreme when it comes to fly fishing but that happened...
Green-Butt Skunk Dark
I show you how to tie the Green-Butt Skunk Dark in today's fly tying tutorial.  The green butt is a classic steelhead fly and today demonstrate the classic hair wing style. This fly works great swinging for summer steelhead but is an all around killer steelhead color (click here to see a post that describes steelhead fly colors). Click here to...
steelhead flies
I stopped by a local fly shop last week to BS a bit and look at some of their steelhead flies. One of the things that really struck me were the prices - $4.50 per fly and more. I’ve never thought that much about prices because I've tied flies for most of my life and grew up around a fly shop. But...

In episode 009 of the Fly Fishing Podcast I had the pleasure of interviewing Simon Gawesworth who is one of the biggest names in fly fishing today.  Simon breaks down spey lines in detail including what's new this year and what he sees in the future of spey. He talks about choosing lines for windy conditions, a good sinking line...
flash fly
I show you how to tie the flash fly in todays fly tying tutorial video.  The flash fly is a great summer or winter steelhead pattern.  I tie it sparse and in the traditional steelhead hair wing style.

switch rod
  So, there’s no question you know what a single handed fly fishing rod is. You’ve probably also either heard about or used a spey rod…. right? But, what about the switch rod that has started to pick up some fame? What use are they if you already have a single and/or longer two handed rod? Switch rods, as the name denotes...
jim teeny
The first sinking fly lines were developed by my guest, Jim Teeny, back in the 1970's.   In Episode 005 of the Fly Fishing Show I had the pleasure of interviewing Jim Teeny who is one of the most influential people in fly fishing over the last 60 years partly due to Jim's contribution of sinking lines for fly fisherman...
fly fishing terminology
“Hey (in a super quiet voice)...... I think I just had a TIP.” I make sure to not move a step and put the same exact cast back on the fish. It swings slowly across the river and then……. another TAP. “shhhhhit! I just had a tap”, as I quietly mention to my buddy fishing 100 meters downstream. Again -...
reading water
  I give up. I spent a large amount of time trying to put together the perfect blog post to answer one of my readers questions but at the end of the day I realized that it's pretty f'n simple. It doesn't take a huge article to tell you how to steelhead.  Sure there is the water speed, depth and cover keys,...
