  1. The Traveling Ardster......

    With winter finally arriving in April I'm feeling the void really strong right now. I haven't been out on a river fishing since October of 2018 . The nearest I've come was a couple weeks back doing some casting instruction, imagine that 2 weeks ago the ice was gone and I had people learning to cast! Now there have been nightly snow storms with daily melt off's and a mix of high winds just to make things nice. So what are you gonna do?

  2. Fishing a Streamer Deep;

    Some questions have been raised regarding how one can attain significant depth when employing my rather unique approach to sinking flies. One specific question regarded fishing for King Salmon in the Columbia River in deep water. While you may not be fishing the Columbia River this spring, the technique I am about to describe will work for deep water conditions from Maine to Washington State.

  5. About Closing Fisheries to Protect Them;

    I stuck this on the thread on the forum, like many replies it ran a little longer than 50 words I thought it was worth saying so now there's a copy here too.

    Education is a familiar refrain, been at the top of the charts for many years but honestly you can only educate the willing.
