The Olive Brassie, and other websites!

So here is one of my favorite spring time patterns.....the Olive Brassie. I tied it up so check it out, tie some up, and try it out on your favorite river. It imitates a large variety of bugs so don't be afraid of trying it. This video is also on our(gilbert and me) website so go check it out. Also browse around on our new fly tying website. We are providing videos, tutorials, and other cool videos and posts about tying, fly fishing, and bugs.

If you are also in the area, and are wanting a guided trip on the Provo or Weber river, contact Utah Pro Fly Fishing, where they will make sure you catch a fish, or you don't have to pay. I know one of the Guides, Gilbert Rowley, and I know he will help you catch some fish.

Taking the brother on the river

About a week and a half ago, I took my brother Troy out on the Lower Provo to show him how to catch fish. He has been slow in getting himself out on the river so I kept inviting him to come and finally, I got him out. The flows had picked up some speed since I had been there so I went out a little before he got there to scope out a good spot. I found one, tied on a fly I have never used(size 12 pink scud) and I started nailing em. After he got there, I gave him one of those good flies, and he even ended up landing a couple. Overall, it was a good night of fishing.

Current Creek May 8th, 2010

With school being over, and with me and Brad getting all of our work done this week, I had today to get out and fish. I was feeling quite adventurous so I decided to go up to Current Creek. I had never been there and never talked to anyone who fished there so I didn't know what to expect. I ended up catching a bunch of rainbows, and just a couple of little browns. I thought that the creek was full of browns, with some rainbows, but after today, I would say there are a lot of rainbows, with some browns. I had fun, caught lots of fish, and learned a lot about creek. I can't wait to get up there and catch even more fish next time!
