    Deeter: Luck Has Nothing to do With Flyfishing

    By Kirk Deeter

    This is for all you out there who are thinking about dabbling in fly fishing, but need another reason to take the plunge...

    Two kids are fishing from the same rowboat, one in the bow, one in the stern. They're both dunking worms. The kid in the front of the boat catches 12 fish. The kid in the back gets zip. How does that happen? Luck. It takes no skill to dangle a worm.

    Tie Talk: Whip Finish Like A Pro

    By Tim Romano

    I'll admit I'm not the best fly tier and when I find tips that visually explain how to use a tool or technique better I'm usually pretty excited. This short video by Tim Flagler over on Midcurrent gives beginners and experts some great tips on using a whip finish tool...arguably the one tool that gets tiers running scared. Don't fret, using one isn't that hard. - TR

    Deeter: Remembering Fish Most Important

    By Kirk Deeter

    The other day, I found myself at the edge of the water, standing before a plaque that bore the name "Trout."  I looked a short distance away, and noticed another sport fish... Snook. There were others as well... Bonefish... Wahoo... Albacore... Perch.  And while you might think that I was pleased to notice this collection of game fish... truth is, I was overcome with a much more solemn sense of appreciation and sadness.

    Deeter: "Fish Quixote" Story Intro Winner Announced

    By Kirk Deeter

    Thanks to all of you who submitted intros to the "Fish Quixote" epic. There are some literary Fly Talkers in the fold indeed.

    I was immediately lured in by those of you who parodied the original Cervantes.

    But there is only one winner, and that's based purely on an ageless rule of flattery...

    Romano: Avoid Exploding Float Boats

    By Tim Romano

    Kirk's recently released his Little Red Book Of Fly Fishing. In it there's 250 tips to make you a better trout fisherman. I've learned a lot from Kirk and the book, but I've decided there's plenty of ancillary "tips" out there not covered. Here's a very important one in regards to trailering your inflatable fishing craft in the mountains. I'll probably never accrue enough brainy tips to write a book, but here's one I've seen missed many times as I've cruised by a popped boat on the side of I-70.

Every Saturday in July, between 9 a.m. and noon, all you have to do is show up at an Orvis store, and you can take classes that teach you how to cast... how to rig your gear... everything you need to get started.

    Romano: Caddis Fly "Sculpture"

    By Tim Romano

    I picked up the latest issue of The Drake at a fly shop yesterday and discovered a gentleman named Hubert Duprat that removes caddis larvae from their casings, dumps in precious stones, jewels, and some gold for good measure. He lets them do their thing for a while and viola! Caddis fly sculpture. And we complain about the price of hackle. Be sure to check out the video at the end of the post. - TR

    Deeter: Why Carp Fishing is More Entertaining Than Soccer

    By Kirk Deeter

    A couple years ago, I wrote a story in Field & Stream called "Carp Crazy." And I led that story by saying that carp fishing was like soccer... the rest of the world is stark raving mad about it, but, for the most part, we Yanks just haven't quite seen the light. I also said that carp fishing was about as exciting as watching a soccer match.

    Tie Talk: The One-Terabyte Fly

    By Tim Romano

    This one was just too cool not to show. Last week I was hanging out with some Trout Unlimited chapter heads from around the state. One of which just happened to be a bigwig at one of our local tech companies here in the Boulder area. He popped this fly in my hand and asked,"ever seen the one-terabyte fly?"
