We’ve got some wintry weather coming over the next 24 hours, but the fishing has been solid and the weather this coming weekend looks excellent. Flows have come up a bit on a few local streams, which will get some fish moving around a bit as well.

These make a great head on a pike fly that’s nearly indestructible.

It’s a pretty cool feeling when you set up a cast, sweep around, pull your bottom hand and your flies go sailing across the currents nearly effortlessly. When a fish takes a swung fly, it’s a totally different experience than fishing with a typical nymph rig. Your flies and line are under constant tension, and you can steer your flies across the currents faster, slower, broadside or upstream depending on what the run and conditions dictate.
