The thing is, even the best new spots take figuring out. Each one fishes differently and has its own secrets. I’m usually on a stream several days before I feel like I really understand it.
Why this guide?
Insects vary between even adjacent watersheds so local fly patterns and fishing methods evolve and adapt. Good information is scattered – road maps, books, fly shops, topo maps, online fishing reports, more. Once there…will you really find the best spots – or just where the crowds go? How many hours do you spend scouting instead of fishing?
We honor and support the fly shops and guides that know the river best. Fly shops have personality and are an experience, where fishing lore is exchanged. Large online retailers may sell en mass, but their general sales are rarely specific to what you really need to catch fish. So, we highlight and sponsor fly shops and guides that can make your experience the best.
