The Cult of Tenkara and The 2012 Somerset Fly Fishing Show

Is Tenkara fishing a fad?  Could Tenkara be some sort of cult that is brainwashing the fragile young minds of the fly fishing world?  Could Owl Jones be right? I’m not really sure about any of any of the recent internet banter surrounding Tenkara fishing but boy, Tenkara USA had a pretty booth! While I’m still trying […]

Quick Trip To Cabela's - No New Rod

End Of Year Clearance - Fly Tying Symposium

As we draw 2011 to a close I’m forced to think about all of the things I didn’t get to do this year.  Regrets?  Perhaps. I’m going to do a few quick and dirty rapid fire posts.  Good news is you’ll get some great pictures to look at.  Bad news is there won’t be much […]

Brown Trout On Valley Creek?  No, But I Did Catch This...

So my last trip to Valley Creek for wild Brown Trout was a bit of a strikeout but I did catch something special… Yep, you read that caption right.  I caught this Caddis Larvae on my good old 5 wt rod.  (In his defense he was doing his best to hide in a big clump […]
