Best Of Big New Zealand Browns

Went to NZ in 96/97 and had heard the name Tony Entwistle back then.  Judging by this video, he's still guiding clients to some large brownies.


Comin Into Your Livin Room

Winner of Best Movie at this year's Drake Fly Fishing Video Awards, Predator showcases surface fishing for queenfish.  I especially like the take when the queenie jumps Jono's popper coming straight at the camera and Jono driving the boat with his toes while simultaneously working a queenfish out of the mangroves.


Some Fishers Grew Up Hunting

I grew up hunting with my dad and brother.  The early mornings, a fresh snow, beautiful elk, ...

Searching For West encapsulates many of the beautiful backdrops and experiences that go along with a life in the outdoors.  If you're a fisher, you'll likely appreciate the beauty of this film.  Over 11000 others watched it on its first day on Vimeo.  Enjoy.  I know I did.

Grandpa and Grandson Fishing


The Riches of Alaska

Rainbows, dollies, salmon, bears....and lots of 'em.


Creating Loop to Loop Connectors

My RIO fly lines come with a loop to loop connector but my backing does not.  This video shows you a great way to fashion a knotless backing loop.  It also shows you how to create one for your fly line if your fly line does not come with a welded loop.  I'll be trying the knotless backing loop for sure.

Presentation is Key

Fishing hatches is as good as it gets.  When rising trout are keyed to a specific bug, you want everything to be just right and a supple leader is one of the most important parts of your arsenal.

Departures--Wicked Mountain Biking

I've been profiling some great outdoor gear flash sales from The Clymb lately.  I happened to check out this mountain biking trailer this morning on their facebook page.  Wouldn't do it myself, wouldn't be prudent, but the stuff these guys ride is amazing to see.
