Predators on the Fly: Finding Feeding Fish

Predators on the Fly: Finding Feeding Fish

The subculture of warm water fly fishing for large predators has exploded over the last few years. Big flies, big fish, furious takes, and for most easily accessible. It's flat out fun. However, all this action is not had without heartache and more than a few unproductive hours logged on the river. Mostly by our own doing and mistakes.

Finding fish and finding feeding fish are two different challenges.

Your nymph rigging rethought

It is often said that the difference between a great day and a bad is one split shot. And it isn’t wrong. Often the success or lack of success that nymph anglers have is very closely related to their ability to properly rig for each fishing situation.

Trout Fishing the Spring Runoff in the Adirondacks

Trout Fishing the Spring Runoff in the Adirondacks

In the Adirondacks our season opener is more at the mercy of mother nature than law. April 1st denotes the legal opening of the trout waters we love and our first days on Adirondack trout streams will almost always be met with swelling rivers.

This year will be no different. As our temperatures rise the snow from the mountains that feed our rivers and streams will turn the clear water high and dirty. This ads an extra challenge to your fishing but certainly isn't a day breaker.
