Nearly two years ago April interviewed me at my home for her podcast. I’m very happy with how this turned out. After spending time on her site, I can see why she’s putting in the effort. Our oral history should not fall into a black hole. Thanks for listening. http://www.aprilvokey.com/podcasts/ JM

SAGE X Series—7120-4 Jeff Mishler February and March is prime time for winter steelhead here in Oregon. The rods I use are 8 weights for two very good reasons: 1) I’m usually chucking heavy sink tips and weighted flies so the 8 weight rocks that gear. 2) I’m often fighting a wild fish that I […]
I was recently asked by SAGE to produce some video clips focusing on Winter and Summer Steelhead fishing tactics. During the process I was fortunate to use a new SAGE Mod 7130 featuring Konnetic Technology. The rod sports a deeper flex than the other Sage spey rod models, making it an efficient tool for casting […]
When and how is a great question, with no perfect answer. I try to address this, in this clip. JM
I posted a couple new clips for you to check out. They might help you find fish and fix that casting flaw that might be nagging you. JM
Most of the time, we are dealing with less than ideal casting conditions. Here are some simple tips to deal with the brush.
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 […]
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.
by Jeff Mishler In the dinner tent of one of our Russian steelhead expeditions, Pete Soverel proclaimed to the weary clan of weather beaten anglers, “If you loose the fish because the terminal gear fails, that’s operator error”. Interpretation: You failed the process of landing the fish if the leader parted, because you didn’t check […]
I love to fish mono behind my shooting heads. It’s effortless to jack casts of any length and have total control over the swing because mono, being so light, is easy to manipulate when the line is laid out on the water. But if you fish mono a lot, you know that winter steelheading with […]

Anyone interested in pre orders of the DVD? I will flip the switch on the point of sale if I get enough feedback. SM4 features Tom Larimer and a bunch of his steelheading buddies as they travel from the rivers of Wisconsin to Steelhead Alley in Ohio, swinging flies for midwest Steelhead. Dave Pinczkowski, […]
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 […]
It’s hot. But the water is cool from a wet summer. The fish are here. Urban summer steelheading in the PNW is something I’ve avoided because I don’t like fishing around a ton of people, but we spent the day trying to flip that into touchable awesomeness. Amazing that with so many fish around, no […]
I’ve been working on a “How To” video channel for steelheaders interested in taking their skills to the next level. We produce the Skagit Master DVD’s to help you move up the ladder by refining angling skills using the latest rods, lines and flies. SM3 promises to do the same, but with your fly tying […]
I was wondering how many of you Skagit Master fans would be interested in an HD/Blu Ray version of our shows. The best player for Blu Ray I’ve discovered is a Sony Play Station. So, if you have one of those or a Blu Ray player, are you game? The retail would be […]
