Sight Fishing to Brown Trout | Tenkara

June 22, 2015

One of the beauties of fishing with a Tenkara rod is it allows you to have perfect presentation, because you don't need to have any line on the water, only tippet and a fly.  Now this isn't always the case or how you always want to fish, but in a sight fishing scenario this is key.  As long as you sneak up on a fish and don't spook him, you can place a fly right in front of them and they won't detect any sign of line.  This is one of the funnest ways to fish because you can see every movement of the fish: the fly lands, the fish spots it, he positions himself to gulp the fly, he...

Worlds Most Comfortable Fishing Shirt

April 21, 2015

We have received a lot of requests for us to make more branded items like shirts, hats, etc.  And I will be the first to admit that designing clothing isn't really one of our strengths.  So in an effort to produce something of quality we have teamed up with a new brand called Dolly Varden Outdoor Clothing.  They make fishing clothing that doesn't look like fishing clothing.  And the particular piece we chose to do is a simple baseball tee ish.  The Biscayne Ball Tee is made of a blend of Poly, Viscose, and Spandex to create an ultralight, sun protecting, wrinkle free t shirt that fits incredible and pushing away odors.  Mens As you can see, it looks like a normal...

Tenkara Fishing Report | The Owyhee River

March 23, 2015

First Day of Spring: Short Sleeves and Dries Flies Bald Eagles soaring, buttery browns lining the edges. We fished the Owyhee rod on the river of the same name.  Early Spring brings bugs and the fish start looking up.  Today we were hoping for hatches of Skwala.  While sporadic, the fish were more keyed in on midges and blue winged olives. The Owyhee River in March requires stealth.  At just 14 CFS the water level is extremely low and slow moving. The fish can feel you and see you much easier, especially now that they are looking up eating dry flies.  Rule #1 don't step in the water unless you have to. We were lucky today and got a few on...
