Minnesota Fly Fishing Announcments
Minnesota Fly Fishing Article

Whether you’re new to the sport of fly fishing, or have been enjoying it for years, knowing the location of the local fly fishing tackle store is a great way to help make your trip successful. This is the place where you can pick up extra equipment, or maybe grab a reel when yours breaks, or snag the extra lures that you forgot to pack. It’s also a good place to catch up on local fishing news, like weather conditions, which fish are biting where, and what’s the best lure to get them to bite.

In addition to lures and bait, a good fly fishing shop will have rods, reels, traps, floats, tackle boxes, lines, nets and other fishing gear. You may also be able to buy tents, a camp stove, fishing vests and boots. Buying gear here could improve your fishing trip, since the shop is most likely to sell equipment that is suited for the area. Look for well-known, quality manufacturers, such as St. Croix, Daiwa, Okuma, Berkley and Shimaro.

The Humminbird Fishin' Buddy 140C Fish Finder is a portable, color fish finder with Downlooking and SideFinder Sonar capabilities.  The Downlooking sonar sends sound waves from the bottom of the transducer into the water that is directly below the transducer.  The SideFinder sonar projects sound waves from the flat side of the transducer housing at the bottom of the transducer shaft.  The SideFinder sonar is able to see fish to the site of your boat and allows you to scan for fish where you cast.  A regular depth finder would not allow you to see these fish.   Read More...

I am sorta new to flyfishing streams.  I might not know everything about stream fishing, but I know how to get a few fish every time I'm out.  Here are some of the things I do to get on the fish.  
I always knew that you needed to find what the trout are feeding on.  So when ever I get to a stream I look for any bugs on the water, flying around, or swimming.  I take my net and swipe up a couple bugs.  I look at them and look at my fly boxes.  I tie on the closest immitation I have of the insect and start fishing.  If that doesn't work, I try other fly, usually a patch adams.

One thing that will lose you a lot of fish is poorly tied knots. The last thing you need, when you eventually catch that big trophy fish, is to watch it swim away with your fly in its mouth, and maybe the tippet and leader trailing along as well. Properly tied fly fishing knots are one of the first things you need to get right. And, you need the right one for the job. Many people only know how to tie a granny knot, and it just won't do.

There are a range of fly fishing knots available. Some are very easy to learn and some are quite complicated, but generally, if you're a beginner you don't need the more difficult ones. There is a fairly simple knot available for just about any fly fishing application: Reel to backing, backing to line, line to leader, leader to tippet, and tippet to fly.

Monday, October 9th 2006 was a day to remember, but it didn't just happen, it took hours of lake research, knowledge of the habits and behaviors of Northern Pike and the patience to stick with it, even with a stiff wind in my face. In order to catch large Northern Pike, you first need to find a lake that has the kind of forage base, water quality and spawning habitat in order to grow and sustain large Northern Pike, because let's face it, if the body of water your fishing doesn't have large Northern Pike in it, chances are pretty good you won't catch any large Northern Pike.   Read More...

Returning home empty handed from the northwest Wisconsin town of Brule after the semi-annual Steelhead run I wondered if there was anything positive to take away from the experience. Chris and I planned this adventure for weeks, searching websites for river reports, visiting the hatchery, talking with fly shop owners and experienced fishermen familiar with the area. We carefully studied the topography and scouted the sites twice in the weeks leading up to the trip. Reading and listening intently to the excited words of those who had fished the run, we had convinced ourselves that this was going to be an experience to remember.   After this weekend we were going to add something to the repertoire that few others could boast of: conquering the mighty steelhead and wild salmon migrating upriver from the inland sea we call Lake Superior.   Read More...

Minnesota Driftless Area Trout Streams

From the Minnesota DNR Magazine April 2007:
"Wading in knee-high water as clear as moonshine, I stripped off three feet of fly line, made two rhythm-gathering false casts, and feathered my dry fly to a fishy haunt 15 feet to my front."

Read more about the Minnesota Driftless Area and the conservation efforts, good read.

Fish bums (and we say that endearingly) and A2 rods were made for each other. The A2 series offers a full line up of fresh and salt water rods to meet any fishing challenge head on. They have balanced medium fast actions, and deliver great performance at a value price. So whether you like hiking up a secret creek, covering a tailwater, stalking a flat, casting poppers for toothy critters, or setting up a big drift with a double hander, you’ll find just the right tool in the A2 series.

The Gear Bag Chest by William Joseph is not your typical "brick on a strap" chest pack. We started by designing a feature that had never been tried before - Comfort. The rest just sort of fell into place. There is literally a spot for everything (except line snags). Fly-fishers come in all shapes and sizes, so the gear bag chest comes with our adjustable harness system. Call your chiropractor and tell him you won't be needing his services anymore - you just bought a William Joseph.

Hydration compatible (35 oz.)
Aerospace breathable backing
Adjustable cam buckle sizing
Mega-heliport workstation
New Tippet Control System
Weighs in at 1.5 lbs.

Why tie my own leaders when I can buy a packaged leader at a local fly shop?  There is no definitive answer when it comes to tying you own leaders in an already complex sport we call fly fishing.  It’s just another intimate way of understanding one aspect of fly fishing, not unlike tying your own flies.   Read More...
