Tonight, we will be making our way out to the International Fly Fishing Film Festival showing @ the North Bend Theater, hosted by Rowdy of N.S.A. Prefunk activities will be taking place just around the corner at one of our favorite area drinking holes The Pour House.
This weeks Fly Shop Friday goes to the Troutwater Fly Shop, out of Cle Elum, WA. A shop that pretty much gets a stop by every time we roll East to fish Desert creeks, Summer Steelhead, Carp lakes or any of the other countless opportunities throughout Eastern Washington.
You may recognize Nic Villano, from this jaw dropping Slab of the month photo on the chum. In this video – Nic rocks a solo mission, for a fall Steelhead smack down, on the swing. Strong work Nic! Makes me wish it was October again.
MOTIV Fishing cuts their own path through some of the most rugged jungles of Belize in hopes of finding out-of-the-way locations—with fish, and escaping with captured memories. To make it home they have to keep moving, or the jungle will surround and overtake them, making you just another roadside casualty in the vehicular ancient Mayan burial ground. Belize is a contrast of extremes (beauty and pain), and the road you end up traveling may not be by choice, but as with anywhere that human interaction hasn’t overtaken, once you get there, paradise and unspoiled fishing are right at your feet.
Ever hooked a Steelhead just feet from the open ocean? Ever landed one so dime bright it’s almost see through? Here’s your chance. The boys of Chrome Chasers just had a cancellation for the week of May 6 – 11, and have two open spots. For the last two years, this has been the best week for fish. Price is $3950 per person, for the week. (airfare to Wrangell, AK, gratuities and hard alcohol not included).
Once a year there is a camp where anglers come together from all over the West to reconnect…this piece is as much a tribute to the human element of fishing as it is to the fish that draws all of us together..
Anglers featured-Rick Matney, Tyler “peaches” Treece, Matt Klara and Laura Jenkins.

After a little Hiatus from the internets, due to work shit, and moving into the new ShootingHead-WorldDominationLab… I was glad to see this waiting in my inbox. Having fished and drank with most of the characters in this video, it bummed me out that I missed the last fall Steelhead camp, but got me stoked for this years WINTER camp.
I really should stop watching shit like this. +1 to the endless bucket list. Sickness.
Farquhar Atoll is the most southerly atoll in the Seychelles chain of islands lying just over 700km to the southwest of the main island Mahe. This remote atoll has a total area, including the large lagoon, of 170.5 km² which is 18 km north to south and 9 km east to west. The total island land mass is 7.5 km² with a serviced concrete landing strip situated on the most northerly island. The main group of islands form a long curve which describes the eastern side of the atoll. Largest of these are Isle du Nord and Ile du Sud, with the smaller Manaha gaps and islands between them. Further south is Goelette and to the open western side of the atoll lies the small group known as Trois Îles. The large ear-shaped lagoon provides easy access to the countless flats, channels and surf zones which make Farquhar such a diverse fishery. The flats consist of hard white sand, turtle grass and broken coral which make for comfortable wading. Farquhar has a small population of local Seychellois, whose main roles are running a small line-fish operation as well as acting as a skeleton crew which manage the island and service the airstrip.
