By Rob Shane If you told me I’d be stuck at home for an indefinite amount of time and encouraged to practice social distancing when I do leave the house, I never would have imagined it would result in me catching my personal best brown...
The coronavirus outbreak has put many a travel plan on the back burner this year.
John Gierach joins Kirk Deeter on Thursday to talk about his new book, “Dumb Luck and the Kindness of Strangers.”
Bigger fish will often lie in hard-to-reach habitat.
Ironically, 2020 is “The Year of the Rat.” Given how 2020 has unfolded so far, I actually consider that to be an insult to rats. But we are seeing some lifting of the pandemic fog where I live in Colorado and in many other places around the country—and fishing definitely stands to be affected… for better or worse.
The venerable Pheasant Tail Nymph turns up in most fly boxes, as it should. It’s a buggy pattern, and the iridescence of the peacock herl tied in as the bug’s abdomen always seems to draw trout to this classic fly. Over the years, the patterns has evolved...

A TU member considers the delay of California’s Trout Opener along the Eastern Sierra and how anglers can help make sure angling regulations reflect scientific data.
Tying an extended-body fly … with ease
There will be some changes to fishing in Yellowstone this summer, at least at the beginning of the season.
By Mark Taylor As we made our way through the final riffle, I dug the oars into the cool, green waters of Virginia’s Jackson River and aimed the stern toward the boat ramp. “Have I told you that I love this thing?” I said to my fishing partner, Sam Dean. My memory...
To kick off our second semester as an organization, our 5 Rivers Trout Unlimited college club made its first official venture to Cotter, Arkansas, on a cold and clear weekend back in January. Nine of the club’s 23 inaugural members made the trip, sharing a cabin over the Martin Luther King holiday weekend.

For backcountry anglers, now is the time to make sure your gear is ready
Trout Unlimited, along with a host of conservation partners, today launched the #ReponsibleRecreation campaign, an effort to encourage anglers and other outdoor recreation enthusiasts to get outside and enjoy America’s great outdoors, but to do so wisely and with great caution as the country continues to endure the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nick points abound in nature, but are also created by man
With fond memories of our last two adventures, it is with great excitement that we announce the 2020 Trout Unlimited and Kinross Fort Knox Armed Forces Appreciation Fishing Trip at Seasons on the Fly Lodge in Bristol Bay, Alaska!
It was the squid boats at sundown that did it for me. I had been holding on to a lot of tension. I knew this. Much of it was linked to my recent move halfway across the state. But most of the ways that I usually deal with stress involve activities, including fishing,...
Learning solid fishing skills on small water helps you with all angling situations
A thankful get-away to the river
As we seek an ‘out’ to stay-at-home orders, how should anglers fish, and how should guides conduct trips?
The panga makes for an unsteady dance floor
No, southern Florida isn’t a trout fishery (at least not of the salmonid variety). But we’re all connected by water, and the Everglades might be the best living laboratory in the country that explains the virtues of water, not just to people, but to every...

These are strange days. Many of us yearn to find again the balance and pleasure of standing in a trout stream. Until we do, photos–and the memories they bring back–provide a welcome respite.
Getting ready for spring fishing in Southeast Alaska.
Tying the Shiney Hiney Caddis Pupa
It’s hardcore gear for hardcore anglers who fish in miserable conditions. It’s a ton of protection for a reasonable price.
Early season trout fishing on the high desert of Idaho
Rabid protection of secret spots can be tricky. I think back to one I protected with a vigor that bordered on irrational paranoia. It was a small stream not far from Roanoke, Va., and I fished it for the first time not long after I moved to the city in 1998. A...
