Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures founder Jim Klug, master cinemaphotographer Chris Patterson and I are more than half way to the Himalayan Mountains of Bhutan enjoying about a 36 hour layover in Bangkok.  Jim and I arrived late last night.  Chris came in early this morning.  You’d think we’d devour some Thai food but everything around our Novotel Hotel was closed.  We settled for last call at the hotel bar.  There’s nothing wrong with ice cold Singha Draft and a thick crusted American style pizza.       Today we all did our own thing in the morning and t ..read more

photo by Jim Klug Yellow Dog FF I’m chilling out here at the Delta Lounge in Minneapolis on a long but relaxing layover before on to Seoul, Korea then to Bangkok for a couple days.  Soon Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures founder Jim Klug and master cinemaphotographer Chris Patterson will be here too.  Thursday morning we’ll continue on to the Himalayan mountains of Bhutan to chase gold.  But this isn’t the gold like I took home from Italy summer of 2022, this is a gold nugget of a fish.  Hunt for the golden mahseer (Tor putitora) starts now!   This is my fifth trip to ..read more

Sloppy Spring Days Don’t Deter a True Steelheader

Today wasn’t exactly one you wake up and want to go fishing.  It was one of those sloppy spring Tuesdays with wet snow falling hard yet barely accumulating.  What amassed turned to dicey road-coating slush.  To add to the loveliness, we had sideswiping wind gust up to 41 mph.  But for those passionate about steelheading, these conditions were perfect for an excursion to the famous Boise Brule River.   I went with my friend Carl Haensel.  He’s the passionate steelheader.  I’ve known Carl for years because he’s the director of the Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo ..read more

I finished up the 2024 “Winter” fly fishing speaking tour in Canada earlier this week.  While most the season has been easy traveling gig to gig, the snow finally caught up with me.  I was hindered by heavy snow in Lethbridge, Alberta and dealt with the white stuff right through my final presentation on Monday night in Calgary.   Tuesday morning I flew home from Calgary through Minneapolis then on to Duluth.  It was snowing hard in MN and I was delayed on both flights but eventually I found myself at the airport parking lot where I first had to find my Exploder, then dig ou ..read more

From Great Falls MT to Canada

The final whirlwind of my 2024 speaking tour is off to a good start.  I kicked it in to gear in Great Falls, MT last night for Missouri River Flyfishers delivering “Trout Bumming the Lakes of Yellowstone”.  This was at least my third time speaking to the club – maybe the fourth.  In any case, it was an excellent crowd and I had a blast.  Thanks very much to all that came to the fun event.   This morning was a casual one.  I stayed at the hotel owned by friend Mike Bushly, founder of Trout Montana Fly Shop in Cascade, MT.  The area is getting crunched by a spr ..read more

Good Times at the Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo

It was a pleasure to be back in Minnesota at the Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo this past weekend.  I shared headliner speaking duties with friend and well-known author and angler, George Daniel.  We both presented numerous presentations over three days and all were well attended by fun folks eager to learn new techniques and places to fly fish.   The Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo is smaller than some of the big “Fly Fishing Shows” such as NJ and Denver, but as a speaker, I love it because there’s more time to meet and chat with everyone.  George and I hung at our booth betw ..read more

You may have noticed over the winter that my website has gone through some changes.  That’s because my site is so big, it literally outgrew the original format.  I was warned back in November that functions were beginning to fail.  This is my livelihood, so in a panic, my webmaster, Mark Kuhn and I went to work.  We’ve been grinding on this unexpected tedious task all winter, late nights and early mornings, and we still aren’t done.   Toss in the normal work routine of answering emails, maintaining an insane schedule, shopping plane tickets, keeping presentations fresh ..read more

Resting, Hiking, Biking, Shoulders and Organizing Flies

Is preparing for fishing, fishing?  Well, if you haven’t been fishing recently but you’ve been fixing for some big trips, then in a sense, yes.  And that’s exactly me lately.  I have a few consecutive weeks home for the first time since August.  It’s too warm to ice fish and no snow for skiing so I’ve been getting rest, getting in shape and just plain getting stuff done.  This list includes returning to a normal sleep routine (my show tour obliterates that), invigorating hikes, runs and bike rides and tuning up the ailing shoulders among other weakened body parts.  ..read more

We’ll call it a wrap down here at Sea Island, Georgia.  Chip and I just got back from a three hour morning fishing session.  It was freezing cold and windy.  53° with a north wind to add to an already chilly day – not fun.  And did I mention drizzle?   When we left the dock at 9 am.  Kyle was off so we had a new guide,  Capt. Rob.  Super nice guy that’s been around a long time.  Rob and I both noticed as we boated through the marsh that every bird from pelicans to cormorants to terns were hunkered down rather than feeding.  If one animal is lay ..read more
