Ditching Work to Visit the Shop Browns

Ditching Work to Visit the Shop Browns

A QUICK TRIP Lance releases a "Shop Brown" For anyone that knows our fly shop and where it's located compared to the local Provo River, knows that we are lucky enough to be fishing within a few minutes from leaving the doors of the shop. So we took off from work a few days ago to pay a visit to a few of these "Shop Browns". And with Lance tossing his fancy Euro rig, it didn't take long to connect... Oh, and if you're wondering what patterns were working, you can also see those in the video. But here's a link to the Squirmy worm style pattern that stood out.

Palomino October Caddis

Palomino October Caddis

Another Flavor of the Palomino When it comes to dry flies, I caught more fish on the trusty Palomino Caddis than any other dry fly this year. So it makes sense that, when faced with some big sedge-eating Cutthroats, I would tweak the original formula and turn it into an October Caddis version. Materials are pretty much the same, but in the colors below. I'm also just reposting the latest version of the tutorial we did because the pattern is the same -- just check out the material variations below....

The Cold Hunt for Trophy Grayling

The Cold Hunt for Trophy Grayling

Low (temps) and Slow A nice Grayling (Feather_Flinger on the stick) We fish a lot of lakes that change from year to year. Whether it's water levels, winter fish kill or other factors, we usually keep close tabs on lakes and do re-con trips to see how things are progressing. So when we have the opportunity to fish one of our nemesis lakes that had been putting out some good (like really good) sized Grayling -- and some decent Brookies -- we packed the boats and headed out. It didn't go so well. But then, it did.

Midge Tip vs. Indicator Rig

Midge Tip vs. Indicator Rig

The Ultimate Stillwater Contest! We get asked a lot what the big deal is with these new midge tip lines for stillwater. And while we're not at all saying they're the end-all be-all for stillwater lines, we definitely see them catching more fish than our (former) favorite indicator rig setup. So rather than speculate, we decided to come up with a little test on a recent trip. Lance was on midge tip duty and Cheech went with the indicator rig. It wasn't overly serious and this is, by no means, scientific but it's a fun little experiment. The results were a little surprising.... (* oh and you can check out the midge tips here... )
