  • Hareline's Ripple Ice Fiber just landed in the shop and I think Mike Schmidt's Articulated Ripple Ice Deceiver is my new favorite quick and dirty deceiver variation.

The video from Fly Fishing The Ozarks features yellow and olive, but many effective color combinations are possible. Materials needed: Uni Big Fly thread in color of your choice  Gamakatsu B10S stinger Size 1...

  •  This week on getting started we will look at the three most common fly fishing techniques; Nymph, Dry Fly and Streamer fishing. Today we will talk about the basic techniques, but as you get more comfortable as a fly angler don't be afraid to experiment or make adjustments to what you read here. Lets look at nymphing first.  Nymphing is a technique where up to three flies (check your local regulations) are fished subsurface, usually under a strike indicator. This is usually done on deep rivers with relatively consistent depth like...

  •  This weeks entry of Getting Started - Fly Fishing for Trout on Southern Alberta Rivers will be focused on what newer fly anglers options are for Fly Rod and Reel outfits, as well as suggestions for what flies to put in your starter fly box. Let’s take a look at some fly rod outfits first.  We briefly touched on this in week 1 but the barrier to entry for fly fishing has lowered with the introduction of high quality, moderately priced fly rods.
