It has been some time since my last post here on the Skagitmaster site. With a recent upgrade, the blog is a better way to communicate with the 2000 members of this page. To date, I have filmed on the Naknek, featuring my good friend Patricia Edel and her program pursuing HUGE rainbows using spey […]

Thanks to all who have purchased the book. I’m amazed at the interest. Here’s one comment from Robert Sheley: Hi Jeff, Just got my copy of Bent. Very clever double entendre for the title. It looks great – it’s the book that I’ve outlined in head for year, my dream project that work always seems […]
Wow, some of you were waiting with hovering fingers for that moment when the site went live. BAM! and the first books were sold. Thanks for the interest. I’m wondering how long it will take to sell the first printing of 500. At this rate, not long. JM
It’s been a very long process, but the books are on their way to the fulfillment company and I should have a live Point of Sale here at Skagitmaster.com by Monday….Tuesday at the latest. Thanks for your patience. I hope you like this work. If you love the culture of fly fishing, this book contains […]
Most of the time, we are dealing with less than ideal casting conditions. Here are some simple tips to deal with the brush.
Check out this new clip Tom Larimer and his good buddy Dave Pinczkowski hit their favorite rivers in the fall hoping to connect with a few steelhead. Tom talks about water temps and presentations.
A documentary featuring some amazing women in fly fishing. Thanks to Patagonia for getting on board. I’m looking for others to help produce this documentary intended for festival audiences: “Headwind” (working title) A Documentary Film (in development) Format: HD Video Length: 60 minutes Produced by: New Water Media, LLC Jeff Mishler—Owner “Headwind”(working title) Portraits […]
If you haven’t seen SM4, please check out Tom Larimer’s introduction of the man who has led many down the path of life with a two handed rod. The video is here JM

I’m busy with the edit. Hope to have it finished and out the door by April 1. No guarantees. Tom did a great job as did all the anglers in the show. The Midwest is a cold place in winter, I’ll tell you that much. JM
Using feathers from the ducks I kill during the season. Mallard, Pintail, widgeon, etc. Just something to look at while you wait for SM4 to come out. JM
After two weeks of chasing Midwest steelhead, I’m quite happy with how Tom Larimer and his band of steelhead buddies pulled through. We suffered through the lowest water conditions since 1944. That’s steelheading. Fortunately, we caught some fish. Swung flies through some excellent water using the latest Airflo Lines and Sage ONE Rods. The WaterMasters […]
True, it is the season of the summer run. Tis’ also the season of screaming elk and sore feet from chasing these creatures into deep canyons. They always seem to go down, not up… Freezer is full. Time to go fishing. JM
The great thing about Affiliate Networks is that you don’t have to do anything to make some $$$ other than post the link on your page in a place where people easily see it. The more Skagit Master DVD sales you generate, the more you make. 12% on $39.99 is about $5. I’ll […]

This never looks good to a steelheader. Good thing I also Duck Hunt.
To date, I’ve filmed most of the fly tying masters I need for SM3. Still trying to pull a couple grand masters together…But with all of the feathers and fur flying, I realized that my winter box was missing a couple important color combinations, so I went to the vise and cranked one out. Steelhead […]

Spent the week shooting Hannah Belford for SM3. Catching up on stuff. The new membership site is on its way. Yeah, yeah, yeah you say. No really it is. Stay tuned.
