    Hey team, I'm looking to do some steelhead fishing next week on the Salmon River. Got an 8wt Echo and a bunch of ESL, nuke eggs, dirty hohs and snake patterns to toss at them. I'll be driving from Missoula and don't want to drive much longer than 5 hours, so I was thinking of posting up around...

    Hey everyone, I was lucky enough yesterday evening to land my first steelhead with a spey rod here in Idaho(pic below)! That is an awesome feeling and one that I will never forget! The 32" hen ate a size 8 green butt skunk that I tied at home, and really didn't hit like I was expecting, with the...

    Hey guys, I have been looking at the number of steelhead returning over Bonneville and Lower Granite Dam and the numbers have been a lot lower than previous years. This has me worried because the forecast for this year's steelhead run was supposed to be even better than last year (minus the...

    Tied up this awesome Game Changer Slider that I learned from Flyfishfood.com. It happens to be my first time attempting a GC as well as making an articulated fly. Typically I am an intruder wire and shank kinda guy but I just got the hang of deerhair and really wanted to try something outside my...

    Does anybody else here skate for winter steel? There’s just something about lighter long lines, twitching a fly on the surface and watching boils happen that get my blood pumping. I can’t be the only one!?

    So I am only entering my second year fly fishing, maybe six months tying flies. I spent this week trying my hand at intruders. I learned of dubbing loops and composite loops day over day. So here is the final one for the week. Hareline Ice Dub (purple) for a dubbing ball Composite Loop: UV2...

    I'm headed down to the Toronto area this fall and don't know where to fish. Not expecting A-list spots but any river that is swingy would be appreciated. I'm totally new to the southern Ontario spey game so if anybody knows of any good patterns i would very much appreciate it. I'm used to...

I'm looking for ideas from people that have experience in the area for ideas on what highlights to hit or...

    I am heading down the coast Dec 15-28 for the holidays, hoping to spend a day out on the water for winter steelhead. Grew up in Surrey and never river fished until I moved away 12 years ago. I know of the popular places to go for steelhead; the Vedder and Chilliwack River. Wondering, where...
