December 9, 2020

Hilarious post from The Onion for the fly fishing community!

HAMILTON, MT—Scoffing at the idea that anything about him was not perfect, local trout K’Lasp Slippins was reportedly offended Tuesday that a fly fisherman would simply toss him back in the river. “Look at my fins, look at my lips, any fly fisherman would be goddamn lucky to have me.

Tips for nymping with tiny flies | Hatch Magazine – Fly Fishing, etc.

July 6, 2020

This article on small nymph fishing has many applications to our Grand River Tailwater. It was originally published online at Hatch Magazine. Have a read.
