A raft without air?

A raft without air?

Inflatable. Pretty simple to infer what it means but by definition it’s the capability to be inflated with air. It also happens to be one of the most important components for any inflatable raft, kayak or paddle board.

The Woolly Bugger … more than just a streamer

The Woolly Bugger … more than just a streamer

The good, old Woolly Bugger is likely the first fly those new to fly tying craft at the vise, and I don’t know any anglers who don’t have ‘Buggers in their fly boxes. In fact, I know anglers who have entire boxes dedicated solely to the tried-and-true streamer

Snake train your dog, for you and for them

Snake train your dog, for you and for them

This is Maya. Maya is a 3-year-old pudelpointer, and she’s the best bird dog I’ve ever had in my life. I’ve had a handful because I enjoy hunting upland and waterfowl, probably as much as I enjoy fly fishing (shhhh… don’t tell the brass at TU I just said that).  No...

Use an indicator fly to help you see your midge

The Griffith’s Gnat. LakeLand Fishing photo. I popped into TroutHunter up in Island Park last weekend — the sun was shining and I just couldn’t stand the sight of the four walls of the home office anymore. I grabbed a half-dozen midge cluster patterns, some size...

The high-holer … and how not to be one

The high-holer … and how not to be one

If you see another angler in the water, keep walking. Find another stretch of river or stream and give everyone their space. Don’t be a dreaded high-holer. Chris Hunt photo. Late last summer, I visited a beautiful stretch of a small stream in eastern Idaho,...

The perfect camping cocktail?

Editor’s note: This post was inspired by Shauna Stephenson’s slightly more sophisticated recipe for a camping cocktail. Check it out. Chris Hunt: This is a tough one, because the weather and the location often depict the beverage, right? I mean, let’s...

The cult of the invasive fish

The cult of the invasive fish

Growing up in the Denver suburbs, one of my favorite childhood haunts was a public park a short bike ride from home. It sported the sketchy jungle gym with the sharp, rusty edges, the little spring loaded ridable critters that, with enough momentum, could send a small...

Learning to row

Learning to row

There’s no better time to start

Growing up as a midwestern kid from the suburbs I didn’t know much about the outdoors. Being from Ohio we didn’t camp a lot. Rivers were a bit foreign to our family of six. Don’t get me wrong, we fished, swam and rode bikes until the streetlights came on but there’s nothing in that equation that prepared me for navigating moving water.

Fishing and filming to ‘Escape’ the pain

Fishing and filming to ‘Escape’ the pain

“I knew the bugs would be smashed up against the bank and the angle and light would all be just right, but I was in pain. I ended up arguing with myself but seeing the shot already in mind forced me to get up and be a functioning human being. I knew if I didn’t go then, I would miss it. Things couldn’t have worked out any better. I owe that to the river.”
