When searching structure, cover, or just an open shoreline trying to find fish, playing the angles can offer positive results.

One of my previous posts here discussed how working a likely area using repeated presentations with different angles can work extremely well. T...

Catching fish on streamers seems really simple, and it can be. Still, there's a lot of considerations an angler has to make for the best success. This time I'm not talking about what pattern is tied on. Nor am I talking about the stripping speed or cadence that's being...

There's no arguing that presenting the fly a long ways out definitely has its advantages.

It allows you to reach more distant spots that may be fished less, and if you're stripping the fly you can cover a lot more water in one cast. Particularly when fishing in open wa...

Biting your lip. Cussing too much. Being late to work. Eating junk food. What do all of these have in common? They are all common bad habits people have. Let's face it, pretty much everyone has at least one bad habit in life! While some are harmless, others can be anno...

Just because I've been fly fishing for a long time doesn't mean I'm a perfect fly fisherman.

Depending on where you are and what you're targeting, fly fishing can range from relaxing to downright frantic. Anyone who's ever sight-fished on the flats or chased busting fish around knows that speed and being ready at a moment's notice can be of paramount importanc...

In some circumstances, fly casting can be relatively effortless or even downright therapeutic. For instance, imagine being out on a western river, casting little dry flies into small pockets and glossy pools. Ahhhh....sounds like both a great time and a great way to re...

I've never been very fond of trolling with conventional gear.

Sitting there while dragging a lure around makes my brain go numb pretty quickly. Of course, the excitement begins when a fish is hooked, but for me, part of the fun in fishing involves the casting and probi...

Fishing from a boat is both fun and often hugely advantageous. A properly-outfitted boat will give you access to waters not accessible from shore and allow you to move around quickly. From ages 16 to 28, I was fortunate to own a few boats ranging from a simplistic 14-f...
