Fly Fishing Tips

"  June starts to see land based insects  as ants, hopppers and beetles coming more into play in the trout's diet.  closer observation along the stream vegetation can pay big rewards this month. "

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.''

John Roberts - Fly Fishing Guide

John Roberts - Virginia Fly Fishing Guide Thanks for visiting these pages. Flyfishing for trout has been a favorite of mine for quite a long time. I had the good fortune of growing up having a father who allowed me to spend lots of time on the local trout streams. He passed a lot of knowledge down to me which I enjoy sharing with others. A trout education is an ongoing pursuit, the smaller 3-10’ wide brook trout streams in the Blue Ridge and Allegheny mountains provided excellent early training grounds for me to learn the wonderful sport of fly fishing. I have learned to appreciate the 5’’ Native Brookie just as much as the 7-pound Rainbow, I still get excited the night before a trip. I always tell my fishermen that if you can catch fish in the small streams the rest will come easy as far as the larger streams are concerned. Most trout live in high rent neighborhoods, I never have gotten tired of visiting them. The scenery along most of these streams is of blue ribbon quality. Wildlife sightings are always fun and educational.

Hopefully at the end of our fishing day you will have acquired a few new skills, learned to appreciate Trout and their environment and sensed the same enjoyment as I have for over 57 years. One of the most gratifying elements of this job is being able to show a person, whether younger or older, something in a day that just might stay with them for life. If I have done my job right you will not want to leave the stream. I have never caught a trout that didn’t put a smile on my face.
