Montana bound!

I’m obsessed with the fusion of Spey rods and trout fishing. Although I love single-hand casting and fishing, Spey rods offer a new challenge in the trout game. Plus, it’s easy to fall in love with Spey casting because it’s so incredibly fun! Outside of the casting, I’ve discovered that Microspey rods are unbelievably effective tools for fishing streamers, wets and nymphs while wading. Even dry fly fishing can be deadly in the right situations.

5 Tips for Winter Steelhead

Winter Steelhead
Hooked up

Here's a few tips to help you find more steelhead this winter. Happy hunting!

Look for the “Gooey” water. If you’ve ever fished with me, you’ve heard me talk about matching the water I choose to fish with the water temperatures. In the cold months of winter, don't waste precious fishing time in the short days of winter fishing fast riffles... The fish don't live there when the water is cold. Instead, focus your efforts in the slow, “gooey” water in the guts and tail-outs of pools.

V1 Pro software at work

Golf instructors realized a long time ago that video taping their students was an extremely powerful teaching tool. So much so, that someone really smart and savvy built software that allows instructors to build a complete lesson plan for their students around videos. (If you golf, you’re probably saying  “Duuu Tom”)
