Winter Fly Fishing

Triple Double?

Winter trout fishing continues to be excellent! In fact, the recent Arctic blast has only made it better. On the fence about getting out? Today's featured picture is a triple double—on a recent trip Jay's client was fighting a double on his single rig only to...

Embrace the Chill

Things are heating up?

In spirit of friendly competition John and Josh headed out for round 2. When the boat hit the water the temperature gage in the car was reading 1 deg/f. Cold weather was no match for the anticipation of another day of winter trouting. Rod guides...
