Congratulations! You just arrived to an awesome website that provides fly fishing tips and techniques for trout, salmon and steelhead. The menu on the left features many of the popular methods and we'll be adding to that list as we move forward with this site.
In the world of steelhead, salmon and trout fishing, there are numerous variations that can be considered from spey casting for Atlantic Salmon to casting a little four weight for Brook Trout on a small mountain creek. A fly fisherman must not get stuck in their ways. It happens quite often, an angler goes out and catches a few steelhead on a pheasant tail nymph under an indicator--three years later, there he is fishing with the same presentation in the same hole. He or she does this due to their confidence from the previous success. The problem with this is the angler becomes one dimensional and will not be able to adapt to the changing conditions.
We must continue to learn, continue to improve and be open to new techniques and different styles. We are modern fishermen with the opportunity to combine all the styles from different nations, cultures and eras. We’re still learning from those early spey casters of Scotland while also inheriting the current hybrid styles from the Americas. We have to take advantage of these fortunes—they are there for the taking.
The goal is to be a well rounded fly fisherman--to be able to hook trophy fish using various techniques and methods. By setting this goal, we are actually committing to a lifelong quest, and that is the beauty of fly fishing. The fact that there will always be something new to learn is comforting as all of us have room to grow.
"The desire for education is actually more important than the skills we learn."
