Northwest Fly Tyer

Great Days on the River

I just can’t get enough of this place.  This is at the base of a cliff where the water is inviting.  Later in the summer, we’ll probably have to share this spot with some swimmers, but I’ll fish this spot any chance I get!IMG_1679IMG_1684

After finding some new water last year that produced some good fishing, I went looking for more. We found a nice new run where the stream rushes under a logging bridge and dumps into a small pool.  We were rewarded for our efforts with a few good cutthroat…

We re-visited a spot from years ago…the water was a little high and off-color, but I’ll be back.


No NW Fly Tyer post would be complete without some reference to flies.  You know…I like flies.  I like tying flies, I like using flies, I like looking at flies.  Why not a shot of a fly box “in action?”
