Fly fishing knot - No Slip Loop

We had some request for help with knots at Putah Creek fishing and wine event. Here are a couple videos that should help you learn them. Remember "practice makes permanent" so practice them a bit right now in preparation for Spring and summer fly fishing applications.

Hint: Always moisten your knots before you pull them tight to preserve knot strength.

Fly fishing California Coast for Steelhead is red hot!

Here are a few shots of Josh Schwartz's clients from the last few days of fly fishing for Steelhead on California's North Coast. There are a number of rivers in Mendocino and Humboldt counties that are producing good numbers of fish and multiple fish days! These wild Steelhead are chrome bright and go ballistic when hooked!

Now is the time to get out and chase them! Give us a call at(877)228-2477 for more info or to reserve your day with Josh.

Enjoy!

Lefty Kreh's No Slip Loop knot

We have found lots of applications for this particular knot. It has near 100% knot strength. It is ideal for fishing streamers or even nymphs that you want to tumble freely in the current.

Take a look at this video to learn how to tie it correctly.

Bug Slinger Buff give away contest winner!!!

Adam Donnelley wrote this in response to our Bug Slinger Buff give a way.

"I taught myself to fly-fish at the age of eight and spent the last 29 years fishing all over the world. Having grown up in Australia I know a thing or two about the effects of the sun. Still I was shocked to find out last year that my favorite passion was potentially killing me. A random trip to the doctor revealed a Basel Cell Carcinoma on my nose – a direct result of not taking proper precautions in the sun.
