Fought like a champ. Not a pretty fish. In fact an ugly stocker but he went airborne 4 times and made my 3wt shudder. Sulphur spinners 16. Had the river to myself. Fishing in the dark. #spinners #sulphurs #ilovewv #visitwv #wvflyfishing #stocker #flyfishingwv #easternflyfishing

Hot Saturday night plans after a day of planting streamside trees with my local @troutunlimited chapter. #trouttown #easternflyfishing #flyfishing #trout #trouthabitat #conservationist #filson #filsonlife
Exactly what defines a bucktail fly, as opposed to a streamer fly, or other flies commonly called hair-wings, has caused some confusion and even disagreement among fly tiers. The East Coast doesn’t hold a monopoly on bucktail history. #EasternFlyFishing https://eastern-fly-fishing.myshopify.com/blogs/departments/fish-food-bucktails
Fell in a hole up to my neck and got divebombed by a bat but hey that’s the night shift. Mousing at night is anything but practical but there is something amazing about using only sound and touch to connect with trout. The stream becomes a different place for those who know it in the dark. #wildtrout #easternflyfishing #repyourwater #releasewildbrowns #templeforkoutfitters #troutbum #troutunlimited #orvis #trutta #paflyfishing #717flyfishing #flyfishing #flyfishpa #flyfishingnation #catchandrelease #catchreleaserepeat #browntown #brownsylvania #makefishingbetter #tightlines #hauntedbywaters #precisionflyfishing
There are flies that catch Anglers and there are flies that catch fish. Both of these were the result of experiments on several limestoners. They aren’t pretty, but they produce. #flytying #flyfishing #flyfishingnation #easternflyfishing #paflyfishing #keystoneflyfishing #717flyfishing #orvis #loonoutdoors #troutunlimited #catchandrelease #makefishingbetter
You really only need a couple hares ears, a bucktail streamer, a deer hair caddis, and an adams or two. Everything else is just making things more complicated. Of course, making things more complicated is what makes this sport fun. #flytying #flyfishing #flyfishingnation #easternflyfishing #paflyfishing #keystoneflyfishing #717flyfishing #orvis #loonoutdoors #troutunlimited #catchandrelease #makefishingbetter
A Cumberland Valley Saturday night. Refilling and reorganizing my primary boxes with the company of some good PA beer, my favorite pipe, and Ken Burns docs. #flytying #flyfishing #flyfishingnation #easternflyfishing #paflyfishing #keystoneflyfishing #717flyfishing #orvis #loonoutdoors #troutunlimited #catchandrelease #makefishingbetter
Inspired by Dan Delekta’s Mega Prince. This one in my own golden stonefly version. First time tying this. I’ll be neater at the head next time.

New striper photo essay in the March/April issue of Eastern fly fishing magazine. Pick up a copy and check it out.
Stayed up all night with trutta on the brain so when 5 am rolled around I pointed the car towards spring creek. At 23 degrees and 40 mph gusts with snow squalls, I was lucky enough to have the whole canyon to myself. I don’t know whose smile was bigger, mine or his. #wildtrout #easternflyfishing #repyourwater #releasewildbrowns #templeforkoutfitters #troutbum #troutunlimited #orvis #trutta #paflyfishing #717flyfishing #flyfishing #flyfishpa #flyfishingnation #catchandrelease #catchreleaserepeat #browntown #brownsylvania #makefishingbetter #tightlines #hauntedbywaters #precisionflyfishing
Home is where the fish are. New record - 13 steps from the front porch and one cast. I’ve caught this fish 4 times now, but only recently has its coloration become this brilliant. Can’t believe he’s dodged the treble hooks this long. #homewaters #easternflyfishing #repyourwater #troutbum #troutunlimited #trout #paflyfishing #limestoners #keystoneflyfishing #717flyfishing #flyfishing #flyfishingnation #flyfishpa #templeforkoutfitters #catchandrelease #catchreleaserepeat #makefishingbetter
As a Colorado native, I never appreciated that there's still a real sense of the "wild west" in our mountains. Just consider some of the names of some past and present towns easily driveable from the Rusty Spinner: Tin Cup, Buckskin Joe, Fairplay, Eureka, Uptop, Muleshoe... We live in a John Wayne movie!
Looking forward to summer trips to the savage river.
This photo of @georgerawlo trudging through knee deep snow on an upstate New York steelhead trip appears in the current issue of Eastern Fly Fishing. #snowdaysteelhead
This photo of a crayfish eating rainbow appears in the current issue of Eastern Fly Fishing. I can't get over how spotted up this fish was.
One of my favorite flies. Know the decade this ad refers to? Hint: It was originated almost 25 years before Breckenridge opened its first mountain to skiing!
I'm very happy to have Eastern Fly Fishing Magazine publish a few thoughts I penned about exploring and fishing the Sandy Creeks of upstate New York. It's a beautiful part of the country I got to poke around in with @georgerawlo while I was living in Canada. * * * * * * #flyfishing #upstateny #easternflyfishing #newyork #sandycreek #freelance #flyfishny #fishing #northcountry
This is the middle fork of the South Platte River near the Rusty Spinner. Always knew it was great fly water, never knew it was a main reason why the area was settled back in 1850’s (lots of gold in this river)
So what’s that mysterious blue background behind the Rusty Spinner Lodge? It’s something that those of you east of here haven’t seen in a while! It may be cold, but fish are biting and slopes are calling!
Attention winter fly fishers and skiers: would this be a perfect home base for a vacation or weekend getaway, or would you rather spend twice as much for a hotel room?
