    Chironicals of May - The Prototype

    “Go north young man, go north.” It’s been over 38 years since I heeded those words and I have to tell you I’m glad I did. There is a lot of territory farther north that still calls me but lately I’ve been hearing a faint echo every now and then “ Go south old fart, ...

    Scientific Anglers Cold Water Intermediate Fly Line

    Intermediate (slow sink) lines have their niche within the arsenal of the Stillwater angler. Although some shallow water  situations can be reasonably managed through the use of either a floating or intermediate line, there are times when the intermediate line is a clear choice (there is pun to be pardoned there, you will learn). Granted, ...

    ... Beadmaster Combo Tool Review

    "Get your bead on" is the slogan that 'on the fly products', the company that makes this interesting new fly tying gadget, uses to describe the Beadmaster fly tying tool.  They say this tool will help you to easily and effectively place beads on your fly fishing hooks. So does it work? To be honest, ...

    ... The Fluorocarbon Myth

    For several years I’ve had a growing feeling that fluorocarbon monofilament simply does not live up to the marketing hype. It is twice as expensive as nylon monofilament but is it twice as good in terms of performance? The short answer is No and this piece will explain why. Recently I lost a large king fish ...

  • Green Grass Cased Caddis Fly Pattern

    Green Grass Cased Caddisfly Pattern

    In all honesty, caddis nymphs are rarely my first choice when choosing flies.  I was raised fishing Kamloops’ stillwaters, where I focused my fishing efforts on chironomid, leech, dragonfly nymph, and dry fly techniques. It wasn’t until I moved from the Kamloops area, and began fishing more swiftwaters, that I started to fully appreciate the ...

  • Getting Jiggy With It (Jig Flies)

    Perdigon Nymph Jig Flies

    There’s at least another month and a half before the lakes in my neck of the woods thaw and I’ll be fishing rivers and streams until then. Picking up on European Competition anglers I decided it was time to go all in and tie up a box of jig flies. With Jig hooks you will ...

  • Pre-chironomid Season: Early Spring Fly Fishing Strategies
    March 16, 2016
    ... fly fishing Britsh Columbia | flyguys.net

    In the pacific northwest, particularly in the interior of BC and Washington, spring stillwater fly-angling is often referred to as “chironomid season”.  With an abundance of lakes where spring emergences are dominated by little dipterans of the taxonomic family Chironomidae (and to a lesser extent Chaoboridae), the colloquial term “chironomid season” is fitting. Over the last ...

  • Zucchini Chironomid Fly

    ... hooked by a Zucchini Chironomid Fly!

    Over the last few years the Zucchini Chironomid Fly has become one of our most popular and most requested chronie fly patterns. And justifiably so. It is typically the first fly tied on once the spring chronies start hatching and it rarely needs to be swapped out! I was recently asked if we invented the ...

  • Coach's Smoked Brook Trout Recipe

    ... Delicious Smoked Trout

    What seems like only a few years ago, Coach was asking about my Simple Smoked Trout Recipe. Then, in typical Coach fashion, he tweaked and twisted things until ultimately arriving at more flavorful brine mixture, with a significantly lower salt content, perfectly suited for smoked Brook Trout. Still simple, and similar enough to the original ...

    ... Producer Chironomid Pupa Fly Pattern

    Well It's winter time, the lakes are icing over and for the avid stillwater fly fisher that means it's once again time to start replenishing our supplies of our favorite chironomid patterns! Perhaps a little early, but for me the anticipation has already begun! And in preparation of next season, I couldn't possibly be fully ...

  • Boat Master Waterproof Duffel Review

    OverBoard Waterproof Duffle Bag Review

    The early BC southern Interior spring had been upon us for some time. A few months prior, when the first of our lakes had begun thawing, I earnestly began organizing my fly-fishing gear, preparing to take advantage of an early spring. In my preparations, I noted that my nylon duffel bag looked poorly adept at ...
