  1. I've Always Had to Work For Them but I made it that way.

    As far back as I can remember fly fishing I didn't like it when there were other people around while I fished. The exception was when I had a fishing buddy for 24 years. Steve learned how to fly fish through our friendship but he didn't always go with me thus I still fished alone a whole lot. From the early days in my teens hiking deep into the mountains extending to today I'm constantly making an effort to avoid other fishermen and suspect many of us are this way and we all have our reasons.

  2. The Big Spruce

    So many times people have said to me, "I wish I had a place like that where I could just go and relax like you do". I've told them the truth, that being that if that;s what you really want there are plenty of them available. They are called Lodges and for anywhere from 3500 to 6200 per week you can go to a wilderness surrounding, fish, and at days end put your feet up and relax while you reflect on the day.

    That keeps me coming back?

    The surf knows how to dish out a beating, literally. Yesterday afternoon I was taking broadside after broadside, try casting a fly rod as a breaker taller than you knocks you off your feet. Body surfing combined with fly fishing, is that a sport?

  4. A Great American Has Passed From This Life;

    We don't do politics but this is my blog and I don't feel very political when I recognize the passing of Senator John McCain.

    Long before it was ever a matter of debate I learned that this man had suffered greatly because he served this country in battle during the Viet Nam War. He was only one of many but he was one whos name I became familiar with because of his position over the past 35 years.

  5. A Topic That Comes Up Often;

    Water's high and it's pouring down more rain so I'm home all day. I read threads on our forum here then scanned the Salmon Fishing Forum and checked all my Fish & Fly e-mail notifications, then I read some other forums. I read a question and the replies to the question and was moved to try to answer.

    Streamer fishing is the same thing as Steelhead fishing with Spey flies or any other fly. Same goes for salmon fishing, it's swinging a submerged fly trying to get a fish to grab ...
