Its 8:30 PM here in Arizona.  I’ve been home for five hours and just now have enough feeling in my hands to be able to write a few words.  Myself and two dear friends spent the last three days fishing some of the best trout water in the world.  The weather was cold but worth [...]

The Pictures Tell the Story

I am sitting here totally stumped on what to write about this trip. I’ve started and then erased a bunch of clever lines. The words are not deserving of these fish and these places. The two spots I was able to fish with good friends for the last four days are so special to me [...]

Fishing the Salt

Written by kyle and posted on August 15th, 2011 | Comment

This past week I had the privilege to spend three days on Kauai and three days on Maui. It was a much needed break from the monotony of 105-115 degree heat. Kauai was beautiful, untouched, and had a local feel. We searched for Puff the Magic Dragon at Hanalei bay. Didn’t see him… The next [...]

Esox of AZ

Written by kyle and posted on July 10th, 2011 | Comments

Esox Lucius…. Doesn’t that just sound mean?? Esox Lucius, or more commonly referred to as Northern Pike, is just that; a mean, hard fighting, predatory fish. I can’t think of a more fun fish to chase this close to home with a fly rod. Native to the far North, Pike have found their way into [...]

Apache Weekend

Written by kyle and posted on June 20th, 2011 | Comments

A few months ago a trip was planned by www.azflyandtie.com.  We rented out an entire lake in hopes of incredible dry fly fishing for Arizona’s own, the Apache Trout.  This fish, found nowhere else on earth, looks like a cross between a Brown Trout and a Bonneville Cutthroat.  Imagine a Bonneville Cutt as far as [...]

Quest for a King

Written by kyle and posted on June 5th, 2011 | Comments

Alaska’s costal waters play host to millions of Pacific Salmon every year. Over the years i’ve been very fortunate, taking several trips to Southeast Alaska and landing four of the five species. Silver, Pink, Chum, and Sockeye are all great and special. The Kings are the largest and have avoided my lines on all previous [...]

Adventures North

Written by kyle and posted on May 17th, 2011 | Leave A Comment

I’m sitting here on my friends computer on a total fishing high. If you have never experience one, it feels like a sun/wind burned face, sore legs from wading rivers and kicking against wind on a stillwater, burning eyes from lack of sleep, and a permanent smile with memories that have just been made replaying [...]

Autumn Gold

Written by kyle and posted on November 13th, 2010 | Comments

Fall continues to be incredible. Last week I was discussing the Brown Trout spawn with Jack from Arizona. He mentioned a spot to me I hadn’t been to in a while. Josh wanted to fish today and I don’t know anyone with more experience with Browns during the spawn. We ran up to check it [...]

Henry’s, why you go

Written by kyle and posted on November 7th, 2010 | Comments

Every now and then a day of fishing comes along that is so incredible you have to pinch yourself to make sure you are really there. Friday November 5th was one of those days. Last week I got a call from Dan Kennedy, he wanted me to come take a look at the deer he [...]

Star Valley

Written by kyle and posted on November 1st, 2010 | Comments

Ten years ago, before I owned a fly rod and when I was much thinner ;D, I went on a deer hunt with my dad. We hunted on unit G of the Wyoming Range. It was quite a hunt and too much happened to tell it all here. One thing that happened was that we [...]
