“Two Hand Trout” – by Rick Matney


Great write up from Rick Matney, Echo Fly Fishing pro on ‘Two Hand Trout’. We have had the pleasure of fishing with Rick a few times and every trip has been a fantastic voyage.

You hear it all the time; “the tug is the drug”. As a Steelhead junkie I get it, but lets be honest: not everyone has patience or location to experience it first hand. Living in Montana limits my opportunity to chase Steelhead to a handful of trips per year. So what’s a Steelhead junkie to do?


Through years of trial and error, I’ve found that both brown and rainbow trout are very willing to eat a swung fly.

Artist Spotlight: H&H Outfitters featured in The Oregonian

Great write up today on H&H Outfitters in The Oregonian.  Nothing better than seeing fresh new Fly Fishing companies getting the spotlight.

The likeness of rapper Ice Cube grinning in a life jacket under a spraypainted “Today was a good spey” would likely float right over most fly-fishermen’s heads. But for brothers Cobb and Alex Hudjohn, it’s just another slightly altered cultural reference tailor-made for a T-shirt.

Their unorthodox fly-fishing and screen-printing business, H&H Outfitters, has put the once-contentious brothers together in the same boat.  Read More Here

Joan Wulff is featured on AMFF’s first online exhibit “A Graceful Rise”

Take the #CAST5 Challenge and Help The American Fly Fishing Museum (AFFM) complete the most innovative and engaging exhibit developed on Saltwater Fly Fishing!

We can’t all ease over to Vermont for a wade down fly fishing memory lane, or look like a million bucks throwing a fly line, but we do have the chance to experience state-of-the-art fly fishing exhibitions first hand in the digital world.

The first online exhibit from AMFF is now online, A Graceful Rise: Women in Fly Fishing Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.  This is an awesome collection of 52 women and their careers and contributions to the sport.

If you love Fly Fishing and know the importance of preserving its history, take the #CAST5 Challenge and cast 5 bucks to the American Fly Fishing Museum.

Developing this online exhibition would make the research available to everyone, for generations to come.
