No New Posts Watching you tube videos. (Preview)
so I’m watching these guys fishing various rivers on the East slope of the Sierra ( the Owens etc. ), and whenever these dudes hook anything over 12 inches, the guide uses this long assed handled net with an opening big enough to cover an Elk to net the thing, after first wading out and landing it with 20 fe...

No New Posts Is flyfishing losing its popularity? (Preview)
I have been a flyfisher for over 40 years. When I got my first VCR, I started recording every trout-related flyfishing show that I could. Consequently, I have a collection of easily more than 500 shows. However, in the last year and a half, I have probably recorded less than a half dozen shows, not becau...

He's gutting the clean water act. He's gutting the clean air act. He's not opposed to re-introducing dredger mining in rivers. He's gutting the endangered species act (rare species of Cutthroats anybody?). The rules regarding what mine operators can dump are being reviewed. SO...MUCH....WINNI...

Hey Guys, As much as I love fly fishing, I also like to bow hunt. I primarily turkey hunt with my bow but have had a hard time finding a place to do so recently. I used to hunt private land in the Livermore area, but the owner has sold most of his farm to real estate now and I have all but lost that spot now. I know i...

No New Posts A TV channel dedicated to fishing, WFN (world fishing network) (Preview)
I just discovered a TV channel dedicated solely to fishing.  It's the world fishing network (WFN).  Although most of the programs are not focused on flyfishing (as you would expect), at least there are several of them on flyfishing.  Unfortunately, I have Comcast and Comcast doesn't yet include...

No New Posts California Fly Shop (Preview)
I stopped by the california Fly shop earlier this week and it looked like a place that wasn't doing well.  The rod racks were almost empty and they seemed to be holding very little stock in everything from reels to nets to fly boxes.   Hopefully they are just in a restocking cycle.  Can't afford to lose an...

So if you haven't heard there is now a hex hatch at Lake Davis.  This is great news for the locals around Portola, and the fly fisherpeople that like to fish lakes!  The funny thing is how the guides are interpreting this....  Why get all wound up about a big lake with a bunch of big planted fish...  There a...
