Epic Fall Fishing Trip Fail?!?

Epic Fall Fishing Trip Fail?!?

This was almost a dud Brandon on the cast I think we all have those trips where you don't have a lot of time to plan and don't have a lot of recent info on the spot where you're headed but you decide to chuck caution to the wind and search up some big fish.  So Brandon and I headed out to chance it. Here's how it all ended...

Palomino Caddis v2.0

Palomino Caddis v2.0

More Buoyancy and Flash The Palomino Caddis has been one of our most popular dry fly patterns for the past several years ( Palomino Caddis ), but that doesn't mean that we stopped thinking of ways to improve it.  We fish the palomino caddis before, during, and after caddis hatches, and it seems to have a great hatch matching and attracting quality.  I think part of the reason for these updates to the pattern is that we have been floating our local river quite a bit, and high buoyancy is an absolute must.  We added another piece of CDC, some flash to the hook shank, and most importantly, we used the Daiichi 1130 which has a slight offset so it hooks really nicely when the fish slash at it (as they tend to do during a caddis hatch. One of my favorite ways to fish it is to cast out, and slightly skate it right when it hits the water, then I dead drift it until the end of the drift, or until it gets devoured by a fish with an appetite bigger than its brain. Tie some up and skat

Pat's Rubber Leg Stone Variation

Pat's Rubber Leg Stone Variation

Make it skinny! NOTE: Being that Lance is in Slovakia at the World Fly Fishing Championships, we're posting this on his behalf. And go.... Pat's rubber legs is a well known stonefly nymph pattern. I think this fly has become popularized for two reasons: It's easy to tie, and it is very effective. I've tied and tried many stonefly nymphs in an effort to find a go-to pattern. Pat's Stone is it. Simple, yet very effective. This version is varied slightly to accommodate euro nymphing so it features a weighted body and a tungsten bead. This fly was featured in the video, Modern Nymphing, (maybe link to Mod Nymphing page on our site??) and uses a small size of variegated chenille that is very hard to find. We call it Stonefly Chenille. Stonefly Chenille is perfect for smallish stonefly imitations like golden and skwala stonefly nymphs. Check out all the colors we carry here: (insert stonefly chenille link). Anyway, forget all those ultra realistic imitat

Favorite Small Lake Boat Setup

Favorite Small Lake Boat Setup

Here's the setup we use for small stillwater fly fishing Our stillwater setup We spend a lot of time on the water. Whether it's in smaller kickboats like the ones shown here or our bigger FlyCraft we use on some rivers, the bass boat or drift boat, we end up doing a lot of floating on or through water. With each boat scenario, there's always fine tuning the gear and how to rig things. So in this video, we walk through our basic small lake stillwater setup. This includes: The small water boats we purchased are Dave Scadden Outlaw Predator kick boats. We've used a lot of these style boats and these Scaddens are the lightest weight, most durable for the weight and have ample storage. This is NOT a paid ad and we don't sell the boats directly (although we can hook you up if you are interested in getting one). Gear-wise, the saddle bags or other similar storage bags are imperative. The downside to stillwater fishing, in general, is that between d

Parachute Hopper Variation

Parachute Hopper Variation

Parachute Hopper Variation One of my first times ever fishing larger terrestrials for hungry trout involved small pocket water, a 3 weight, and a parachute hopper.  Instead of crashing my fly down really hard into the pools, I'd place a cast about where it should go, and the bushy parachute would gently land in it's place only to be violently slashed off of the surface.  The parachute hopper became a confidence fly for me that day, and I think it fishes completely differently from a foam fly due to how softly it lands on the water.  I remember going home and attempting to tie some, but I quickly realized that the turkey wing, the calf body hair post,  and the knotted pheasant tail fibers were pretty hard to pull off correctly.  Not only that, but after a fish or two all your hard work would be shredded by a fish.  Because of those issues, I took a long break from tying them.  Just recently I have started fishing some water that I thought would benefit from a softer landing
