BC Steelhead--Thompson River Edition

Or should I say lack of Thompson River steelhead.  One of the world's most fabled steelhead rivers is a shadow of its former self.  Some years it's open, others it's closed.  I still long to fish the huge water of the T as it's called by many and hook up on a big, powerful steelhead.  The combination of fish and river give you a chance to get spooled like few other places.  Wouldn't that be a story to tell.

Alaska Rainbows

Dreading Alaska?

Don't fall for the stereotypes of guys with dreadlocks being uneducated.  There're insightful discussions about right angles and many other topics in this piece that brings back cold, painful memories of trying to put on frozen waders on winter steelheading trips.  Brrrr!

New Zealand Browns--Mountain Bike Style

The mountain bike.  Most of us have one but don't realize it has huge benefits for fishing.  We often use them to bike up away from the majority of foot soldiers.  We also hide one in the bush quite often when fishing a long stretch of river.  At day's end a 5 minute bike ride back to the truck saves your legs a ton of walking and let's you feel a lot more rested for the next day's fishing.  Give it a try.

Big, beautiful Bulkley River BC steelhead at Frontier Farwest.

Chile Flyfishing?

One of the greatest fly fishing, rafting and kayaking regions on earth is threatened by massive dams.  A lot like BC only we're threatened by so called "green" dams.  BC's low elevation dams will still sacrifice much of the fish and wildlife and the ecotourism that depends on them.
