    The Best Fly Tip of All

    By Kirk Deeter

    What's the single best fly fishing tip you've ever heard?

    I've learned a lot of helpful hints over the years on everything from casting to picking the right fly... but in my book, the number one challenge (and the real appeal of fly fishing) is locating fish in the river.  It's all a big game of hide and seek, which never grows old.

    Enough with the "Extreme" Fishing Already!

    By Kirk Deeter

    Let's get something straight.  Rodeo is an "extreme" sport.  Perhaps the original extreme sport.  Doing back flips on motorcycles (on purpose) over jumps is pretty extreme.  BASE jumping is extreme.  Fly fishing is not an extreme sport.  Never has been. Never will be.

    "Far Out" Island Fishing

    By Kirk Deeter

    I can't trick you folks, can I?  Yes, the answer is Mayaguana, Bahamas.  You all are pretty dialed in... I'll have to up my game.

    On this trip, I actually had a chance to hit three different islands--Crooked Island, Acklin's Island, and Mayaguana-- to sample the fishing.  The photo was from Mayaguana. TimberDoodle, you were the name out of the hat, so hit me at editor@anglingtrade.com, and we'll get you some flies.

    Name the Mystery Island

    By Kirk Deeter

    Because I travel and fish a lot, I often get asked that question: If you could be "beamed"   anywhere in the world, to fish for any species, where would it be?  And I usually answer that I live out West for a reason... namely, I like to catch big trout on flies.

    It's been a while since I posted a straight up photo entry for the blog and thought you might enjoy a little slide show of some spring fishing activities here in Colorado over the past couple of weeks. There are BWO's on the Big Thompson, getting skunked on Spinney Mt. Reservoir, Mother's Day Caddis on the Arkansas River, and a little carp fishing at Jackson Lake on the plains of Colorado.  Enjoy, TR
