There are so many things that go through my mind when I hear the word Flymph. When I first saw it I thought it was more of a Wet Fly, but this fly will float like a Dry Fly.

The weather during this early spring shoot was as usual; rain, rain and more rain. The rivers rose fast, cleared out, and rose again with each new rain storm. My friend and angler on film, Jack Mitchell, has lived in the Pacific Northwest his entire life and has been guiding and chasing steelhead for most of his years. Despite his expertise, the very real deal of fly fishing for steelhead means that there are no guarantees. It took us many attempts, many hours on the river, and many conversations. Finally we landed a steelhead, but it was what Jack calls “arduous patience” that made it all happen. As in every video shoot, I appreciate the cooperation and joviality of my anglers. Jack is as jovial as they come. What an adventure! Thanks to Jack Mitchell of The Steelhead Ranch http://theeveninghatch.com, and to Eddie Bauer for their generous support.

I ask you … Deer Hair and Bad Hair Days or Caribou/Antelope for nicely spun heads? I think the answer to that question is a no brainer! Get yourself some Caribou or Antelope and start tying some great looking flies!

Jef Blood, inventor of the “Blood Dot” fly, shows us how to tie this easy pattern and discusses why it works so well for steelhead and trout.
The Mop fly is a fish catching machine. It’s so simple to tie I almost hate to call it fly tying. Give this “fly” a try, especially on the early season stocked trout.

Bill Spicer travels to Huron County in southern Ontario to join Mike Verhoef. Together they fly fish on the Maitland River for steelhead in the fall. They discuss two-handed casting, swinging a fly, fly patterns and much, much more. To learn more, visit: http://www.flyfitters.ca
Being that the Hare’s Ear is such a classic and venerable pattern, it’s only fitting that applying new styles to it occur more often than not. The Czech-style of nymphing has overtaken many areas of fly flshing, and it’s easy to convert the Hare’s Ear to that type of a pattern, as shown in the fly tying tutorial.
NW Outfitters have been fishing classic style Atlantic Salmon hair wing tubes for steelhead for a while now with awesome results. They cast like bullets, move great, and sink fast. They thought it was time to share.
Here is a video showing how to safely handle, hold, catch, and release trout in a better and healthier way to better ensure their survival.
Dying Feathers is a real good idea, especially if you want a special color. Maybe that nymph that you have seen in your new fishing waters is a color that your Feather supplier does not have. If you experiment with the dyes you may just come up with that color.

The Elk River system in the Southeastern corner of British Columbia is a fantastic destination for fly fishing. Your target species are westslope cutthroat trout, bull trout and mountain whitefish.

Here’s a few simple tips on how to best hold a fish and get a great photograph, without harming the fish.
There’s a lot of debate right now about photographing fish. Like most topics that get blown out of proportion on the internet, this debate is riddled with sensationalized accusations and disinformation. I’ve written about holding fish for photographs but I thought a short video showing how simple and noninvasive it can be would be a big help.
First, I’d like to clarify my stance on the subject. When done properly, I do not see any harm in photographing a fish. Fish are injured by poor handling, not cameras. I have two serious problems with the ‘no photo’ argument. First, it simply doesn’t address the problem. If anglers are mishandling fish, they are doing so while landing them and unhooking them with or without a photo. Demonizing the camera does nothing to stop this and doesn’t save fish. What we should be doing is educating anglers on ethical fish handling. Secondly, the photograph is the bargain that makes catch-and-release fishing work. Whether you like it or not there are simply a lot of anglers who require proof of their catch. It’s much better to give them a photo than a corpse.
