It’s easy to suggest to new anglers that they become immediately familiar with the rules and regulations, but it will take time to teach the little things to newbies as they hit the water in greater numbers and frequency
Restoration work on the Upper Rio Grande that starts in southwest Colorado and flows on into New Mexico and beyond has been a focus of TU’s for multiple years.
It’s up to us to know when the waters we fish might be working against the trout we’re after. Arm yourself with a water temperature thermometer, and by all means use it
Fishing dogs are rare animals, and Poppy, the old English bull dog muzzling a freshly caught Idaho carp in the snapshot above is, for the record, not a fishing dog. Not yet anyway. I’m in possession of the greatest fishing dog ever — Phoebe — who responds to...
I just got back from a week in the Bahamas, where I put in long days on the flats stalking wily bonefish. It was good practice, because now, as runoff starts to cloud my local trout rivers, it’s a time for carp
There are many considerations when getting into a boat. These obviously include safety, comfort, and logistics. This list goes on and on, but the one thing anglers need to think about that other boaters do not, is noise.
I dusted off the old baitcaster, and rigged up some crankbaits, swimbaits, poppers and such, and am waiting patiently for ice-out. Where I live, pike love to eat trout, pretty much to a fault
The number-one question I have always been asked, and still get asked, is, “what’s that one, special tip that matters most?” “What’s the one thing that separates the best anglers from the rest?
It may not be considered remarkable news when the head of an industry trade association steps down, but for fly fishers across America, this one’s different. Ben Bulis, president of the American Fly Fishing Trade Association for the past nine years, announced...
Nymphing clearly has its place in fly fishing, and while most anglers might prefer to practice the Godly act of catching trout on a dry fly, knowing how to drift a nymph under an indicator will certainly help you catch more fish
Understanding the mayfly life cycle will help you catch more trout

The “float-and-fly” technique is pretty similar to the old fly and bubble rig you might have tried as a youngster, or before you completely converted fly fishing
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
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
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
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....
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
Fly casting is an art grounded in physics. Line tension is, indeed, the key to every successful cast
Cold fingers sting back to life, pressed firmly against the vent as warm air, fresh from the engine block, puffs on pink digits
I’m a “freelance” fly fisher by trade. Even on new water, I tend to look for what appears to be familiar. Long, deep runs. Structure. Riffles. Tailouts. Rising fish. And when I see the latter, I become somewhat laser-focused. Rising fish are feeding fish, and...
This time of the year is a great time to be out chasing trout. Winter doesn’t have to get in the way of that
Like a lot of us, his passion is fly fishing, and, like a lot of us, he ties his own flies
