The fish of a thousand casts. A legendary and ghost-like species that demands hours of patient and relentless pursuit. Fishing for days on huge rivers that look like they may not hold a single fish.

AlaskaGuideList:

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
