Small Stream=Big Results- Fly Fishing Video

Big "shout out" to our friend Gil Rowley for putting this video together from one of his trips this last summer!  Saweettt video Gil!  I asked Gil what river this was and he declined to provide the location(I think it is in Wyoming...) but i told him we would be glad to put it on our blog anyway!  I would also like to mention that Gil is a huge supporter of Tacky Fly Fishing and Rainy's flies.  Thanks again Gil, great video!

If you haven't checked out Tacky Fly Boxes you should! Learn more at

Most of the fish caught in this video were taken on a fly called the Rowley Stone. It is a great stonefly pattern, learn how to tie it at

Lake Blanche Fishing 9/16/14

So...Ken finally gave me a day off so i decided to go wet a hook.  I have been itchin to get up to Lake Blanche just to hike but then did some research to find out that people actually fish it and catch Brookies.  I started the hike around 1:30 and got up there a little after 3pm.  I fished for 2 hrs before i headed back.  It is a 6.1 mile hike that climbs over 2500 ft in elevation.  I caught about 25 brookies in the 2 hrs i fished, 75% of them were on a green Caddis dry.  Beautiful fall colors and scenery, great fishing, fun fish to catch, biggest was 10 or 11 inches, most were 6-8inches.

Minversville Reservoir Fly Fishing 5/24/2014

Hit up Minersville Res on Sat. Caught some nice bows and my first ever Wiper! I had not idea those wipers would fight so hard it was a lot of fun and probably the highlight of the trip. We fished all morning and when we decided to head in I told Jimmy I am going to just troll this muddler minnow in. Well after about 5 mins that wiper hit that minnow and took my line out all the way to the backing and then took another probably 50 yards of backing until it let up. I thought I had a 27 inch rainbow on. We here there are some nice Wipers over in Newcastle Res so we will have to get over there and see if we can catch any. We will keep you posted. Here are a few pics from Minersville.
