Skagit Lines on Single Handers »

I produced a short clip of Yours Truly showing how easy it is to incorporate a Skagit Line into your single hand rod fishing arsenal.

For tight quarters, there’s really nothing better:

I’m developing SM5 to cover this material, presented by expert anglers dedicated to using Skagit style lines on small rods.  The world of small stream bass, trout and less popular  species is ripe for discovery.

Fly Fishing Glossary for the 21st Century »

Jay told me this book is for anyone living with or partnered with someone addicted to fly fishing.  Makes sense.  I’m sure half of what I say when chatting with other steelheaders makes no sense to an outsider.  But I have read much of this book and highly recommend it  to anyone who loves to fish.   Less than a precise technical reference manual, more than a memoir, this book is a must read if you like to laugh at yourself and your obsession for flyfishing.  Fly Fishing Book of Revelation is the insider’s guide to something our loved ones hopelessly try to understand.  It’s also funny as heck…

Skagit Master Volume 4 revisited! »

It’s been some time since I viewed the material but when I do I’m reminded how much one can learn from these shows.  So I’m gonna post some links to previews.  If you haven’t seen them, check them out:

Then come back to:

And buy a membership so you can live stream all of the shows.  $89.99 buys a one year access to all of the Skagit Master productions, in HD, plus a bunch of finer point videos you might find informative as well.  That’s a lot cheaper than buying all four DVDs.  But if DVDs are your preference, then buy all four for gosh sakes!

Have fun.

A Reflection »

Winter Steelhead

You know how it is: Winter creates unpredictable water conditions, but everyday family life hands you so many variables that planning a two day foray to the coast and being lucky enough to see perfect water conditions coincide with your hall pass is luckier than holding a winning Powerball ticket. This I pondered as I lay in a heap of pain, crumpled on the landing of the basement staircase having just discovered that old painted stairs under wool socks are slicker than dog snot on a park slide smeared with bacon fat.

The Clan

by Jeff Mishler

By keeping our steelheading clan small, we avoid tossing around the Tinted Window Treatment because we don’t really care if one of us knows where the other has been hiding out. What’s the tinted window treatment? Remember that time you were cruising down the freeway and noticed in your truck’s driver’s side mirror a nice sports car approaching. You could see through the windshield that the driver was a woman, a single, attractive woman, as well kept as her stunning sports car. Continue reading

If you care about the Lower Deschutes River…. »

My buddy Dave Moskowitz and the staff at DRA are working hard to make sure our wonderful treasure known as the Lower Deschutes River, is managed for the long haul.

The Deschutes River Alliance was formed when concerned stakeholders noted that there was no long term management plan for the river while observing substantial changes in the ecosystem after the cooling towers went into operation at Pelton Dam.  The stream ecology was changing and no one was keeping track.

Check them out.  Donate.  Do what you can.
