dry fly fishing
I was dry fly fishing in Montana a number of years ago on a small trout stream outside of Missoula. There was this crazy hatch going on and the fish were on it.  We were approaching dark so every cast felt critical as we ran out of time.

kelly galloup
Show Notes: https://wetflyswing.com/52 I had the pleasure of interviewing Kelly Galloup, the man who changed the streamer game back in the day with the book Modern Streamers.  We talk about his youtube channel and the large resource for fly tyers, his porn fly names, walking the dog with bass fishing and other techniques on making the fish react.  This one was crazy good and a ride I could have kept on.  Hope you enjoy.

wind knots
One of the things you will learn about steelhead fly fishing is that sometimes you can put in a lot of time for one shot at a fish.  That one pull that you put in 40 hours for.  You will likely be logging a lot of time and effort until you get that next hookup. I want you to be ready...
wet fly fishing
Wet fly fishing on rivers may seem a little old school to some in the fly fishing world.  You know, the wet fly swing?  or fishing a cast of wet flies?  It's like when you were 14 years old and your parents were talking about their youth and the crazy stuff they did. Boring. But, today I'd like you to Just...
