So Cal Steelhead Film

Whew, it's been a LONG a** time since I posted! Lots to catch up on. Stay tuned for "Trout Fishing in Corsica"! Ok, in the entry I wish to call attention to the Southern Steelhead. After years of obsessing over this fish and having ever so few encounters, I was very pleased to see Mikey Wier run with his Cal Trout appointment and whip together this fascinating encapsulation of the subject. I'll let the video and his words do the talking. Check out the trailer:

Yosemite Rivers Fly Shop Opening Party - May 4th, 2013

The Yosemite Rivers Fly Shop is base of operations for Sierra Fly Fisher and a place that I sometimes spend a lot of time at in the summer. The shop is having an opening party on Saturday, May 4th and it's going be really cool. A diverse mix of visiting tyers and fly fishing hot shots will be present. I suggest integrating a visit to the party into a weekend of angling! Details will be posted daily at: I'll be there!

High Tide Croaker

Still pondering my next trout huggin' expedition. Low water in most parts of the state has got me a bit nervous. Still the mid-elevation Sierra waters that normally run heavy will be primo in late spring. Setting sights on that strategy. But no one wants to get too rusty so today in Santa Monica, despite the salad and high surf, a chubby yellow fin croaker was dished the fly.

Bean Gone Too Long

A long overdue entry. A lot of personal stuff and music stuff goin' on that I'll save for another post. The fun fishy thing right now is the odd appearance of Corbina on the beaches of So Cal in January. I'll let the picture do the talking!
