Fly Fishing Tips

"  Late July & August are great times for fishing Ant, Hopper & Beetle patterns. "

Have You Heard

" ''Brookies are my favorite. They're the only trout native to Virginia and they live in nice places. John catches a memory, a recollection of the fragrant smells of mountain greenery, a chorus of birdsongs mingling with the symphony of a rushing stream- things that once experienced, hook you as surely as a fly hooks a brookie.'' "

Ant fishing is always great this time of year, note the delicate take on the fly below by the colorful  August Rainbow who was hanging out under an old sycamore loaded with carpenter ants. Beetle patterns are good right now along the meadow and spring creeks, hoppers are not quite as plentiful this year but still are a good way to go.

08/29/2015  -While the waters are still low  we have been taking some very nice Rainbows up to 22'' mid-day on dries which is hard to do most times in the hottest part of the summer. Tricos are still active. Water temps for August so far have been excellent. Our trophy waters are  fishing fine right now. E-mail me for booking a trip or call 1-800-882-1145. My Intro trips are an excellent way to introduce yourself to one of the outdoor's most fascinating sports and its ongoing learning process. We make it fun.

8/18 2015 AUGUST OUTLOOK -  Fishing has been good despite lower flows in a lot of the local watersheds.  We have had enough rain though to keep the waters fresh and healthy for the trout.  Any time after a rain event , i.e. , light or medium shower this time of year,  will see increased activity and more energetic fish. August can be a slow down  stressor type month  for trout but not so far this year. Any time we can take a trout on top of the water mid-day  like we are doing now is a great sign of this. Though the days  have been warmer these can be offset by the cooler 58-68 degree nights we have had so far. Terrestrial patterns including cricket, ant, beetle, inch worm, hopper and several more are great right now. Tricos are active on the Spring creeks.  September will see  much better water temps after the 2nd week.

Special Trip This Month- Great for beginners where we get you started learning equipment, casting,  knot tying, fish identification, basic entomolgy, proper catch and release and more  on a mountain pond stocked with Brook, Rainbow and Brown Trout. Finish up on a nice Va. trout stream as you learn how to catch trout in moving water on dry  and wet flies. This one will get you started on the right rack.
