Fly Fishing 101

Tippet Rings

This one little, and I mean LITTLE, trick will help you save a ton of money wasted on leaders each month. Tippet rings help you from wasting valuable leaders by adding a teeny tiny washer to your leader that allows you to tie tippet on as you need it without cutting into your leader. In this video, I will show you how to use a tippet ring and some tricks to help you get the most out of your rig with this new add on. Plus rumor has it, we like to give these out in our Supply Drops.  

Different Strike Indicators

You COULD go through the process that I did when I got into fly fishing. Trying different sorts of strike indicators, seeing which ones work and which ones don't. OR you could watch this video where I go over each of the common strike indicators and their design so you can make an informed decision next time you're at the fly shop.  Remember not all strike indicators are created equal. Some won't accurately show you a strike and some will end up in the bushes. 

How To Rig Your Flies

When getting started in any new hobby or sport, there are basics that everyone needs to know. In this week's video, we go over how to rig your flies in the 3 most common setups. This isn't an end all be all comprehensive list, in fact I plan to revisit this video to talk about some of my favorite alternatives. This is just a guide to get new anglers exploring the different possibilities on how to set up their flies and hit the water with the confidence they need to catch fish. |In this video, I cover a traditional nymph rig, the dry dropper rig and things to look out for when fishing just a dry fly. With these three different styles of rigs, you can begin to explore what style works best for you and start tweaking your technique to produce the results you're looking for.
