This is the most significant new company/product entry in the fly-fishing market in at least a decade. And it comes at seminal moment for sport fishing as a whole. “Bajio,” named after the Spanish word for “shallows,” will make its North American debut this month...
I get lots of questions about trout, but many of them come this time of year. The sunlight shows itself for short periods, and the nights are long and cold. Seeing ice on riverbanks and entire lakes frozen over, people begin to think about what happens to the species...
I’m not much of a lake guy. Don’t misunderstand that statement. I like lakes as an idea. Fishing them, though, is problematic, mostly because the lakes I would relish fishing are well off the beaten track
There was a storm at our backs as we neared Silver City, a winter storm calling for 6 inches of snow. That night, we had to use tents for the first and last time in New Mexico. I was annoyed because it broke our cowboy camping streak. We had slept out every night in New Mexico. Thankfully, it only sprinkled.
Seven of us pierced the Gila wildlands that day, and, despite the best efforts of a clueless pot-shotter, all seven of us made it out without holes in our hides. We never figured out who was shooting or what they were shooting at
Along the road we crossed through the Acoma Indian reservation, under some beautiful bluffs. In the cliffs there were some very old caves. With the wind that blew through our ranks, I could well believe that those caves had been worn out over many centuries. What else could wind do over time?

The rugged country and streams in the Owyhee River watershed in eastern Oregon represent one of the best remaining opportunities for landscape-scale conservation in the West
The good, old San Juan Worm is one of the best fly patterns out there, even if you might feel a bit sheepish tying it on for fear one of your buddies will see you casting it and accuse you of high-brow cheating
If you know a young person who is interested in the outdoors, fishing and/or conservation as a possible career path, and you think they might want a really cool summer job where they will get their boots wet, have them learn more about the Jeremy Brooks Memorial...
There’s nearly no better way to kick off a new year than on a river. It’s a great way to set things right, forget what happened in the previous year and daydream about fishing adventures to come. A few years back, I attempted to catch a trout on a...
By Taylor Ridderbusch Today, both state governments and federal agencies announced two major milestones in the Brandon Road Lock and Dam project to keep Asian carp out of the Great Lakes. First, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the state of Illinois have reached a...
We had been walking through a food source without knowing it. The trees around us were pinyon pines, they had little seeds in their cones that were not only edible, but delicious. The fire fighters told us that these seeds sold for more than $30 a pound. This newfound knowledge slowed my walking speed considerably over the last few days. Every 40 feet or so, I would stop and pick some seeds off the trees, eat them, and then pick some more.
The skies are different here. They have lots of different shades in distinct lines: dark blue, light blue, pale yellow, orange, pink, red. It kind of makes you want to be up there in the air, and not this boring brush tree desert.
Eventually, I got to where I could place just the right amount ahead of the hackle and behind the hook eye before I whip-finished the fly
One nice thing about the change in the weather is that we were beginning to see a lot of golden aspen trees. It is almost as though they give off their own light. Even well after sunset, you walk under an aspen tree stand and see the trail light up.
Many of the old buildings made me feel like I was walking through the Old West.
It would be a serious understatement to say that 2020 has been a challenging year. Yet in the midst of a global pandemic and its harsh toll on our economy, communities and personal lives, Trout Unlimited and our supporters and partners helped deliver some outstanding...
I learned to fish in the creeks and beaver ponds of Colorado’s high country, pulling nuggets of wisdom from willing grandfathers who believed time spent with their grandchildren should be time spent outdoors. These two men introduced me and my brothers to the wonders...
I recently read an essay where a priest on a mission to Guatemala discovered that artists from the village painted museum-quality artwork on the inside walls of a bell-tower—a place where only pigeons would see them. The story...
Sleek, slender and heavy Euro-style nymphs are gaining popularity in the U.S., largely thanks to international fly-fishing tournaments where European anglers tend to take top honors more often than not. Make no mistake about it, these Perdigon-style nymphs catch fish....
One of the fun things about the Continental Divide Trail is that it is a create your own challenge at times. Because the trail is not officially 100 percent completed there are a lot of ways to do alternates.
It moved so slowly that it took me a moment to grasp what was happening. I believe I uttered the standard expression all anglers rely on in such circumstances, which is, of course, “Holy Toledo!” Except you don’t use the word “Toledo.”
In August 2020, TU worked with our partners in northeast Wisconsin to remove a remnant logging dam in the North Branch Oconto River near Wabeno
On the Mendocino Coast in California, an historic railway line is at the heart of a suite of restoration projects completed this year that will help imperiled fish species in one of the most important river systems on California’s North Coast for Coho Salmon and steelhead.
Because we weathered the storm down in Denver, we remained unaware that there had been very high winds at Lake Granby. Those winds had blown over trees in huge patches, destroying acres and acres of forest.

Home. It’s where many of us feel most alive and comforted. And this year, many of us have become all too familiar with our homes. Since I work from home (and have for years), I cherish the idea of expanding my concept of home. My physical home is...
Fly casting is an art grounded in physics. Line tension is, indeed, the key to every successful cast
Unlike humans, trout only grow more beautiful with age. I know, I know, beauty’s on the inside, but come on. We are all aware of growing older and should be able to admit to being bothered by it sometimes.
The permit denial for the proposed Pebble mine wouldn’t have been made possible without millions of people submitting comments and signing petitions, calling elected officials, and of course, rocking “No Pebble Mine” stickers for nearly two decades.
