Elk Season

With elk season around the corner, I thought I might share a video that I came across about cooking elk steaks. Elk is really one of my favorite animals to eat. To all you hunters out there, good luck this season. I hope everyone has some full freezers come this fall.

Hopper Dropper

As we move closer to August water flows are going to start dropping. This is the time to tie on some foam and fish big terrestrial patterns. A hopper dropper rigs is a perfect setup for July, August, and September. It works on both river and still waters all over the western united states. Here is a little video showing you how to rig a hopper dropper.

Doctor Shot while Fly Fishing in Belize

When we go on fishing vacations we often think of any danger that might occur. Even if we do it might be sharks, jellyfish, or even dangerous currents. Last week a 53-year-old doctor from Virginia was brutally shot while out fly fishing in Belize. This is a case of being at the wrong place at the wrong time. For the full article on the story click here.

This kind of thing should not stop you from going out and exploring new places. Fly Fishing takes us all over the world to amazing places but sometimes bad things happen.

Our thoughts go out to the friends and family of Dr. Gary Swank.
