Our intention is to inspire others to explore our priceless public lands, and find their own piece of solitude. We also wish to provide educational insight to the angling thought processes and techniques used by our guides.  We do not wish to put unessacery amounts of angling pressure on these small ecosystems, so the creeks here shall remain nameless.  Enjoy your adventures!

(Sometimes talking to one of our shop guys or gals in person can squeeze out a bit of additional info as well.)

 

Edition 4: 

creekin' with the boys

When you have some friends in town and all the local fishing spots are crowded, it can be a great refuge to hit the high country.  Ben McCormick got out of the shop for a day, and had a blast with his buddies.  Have a read about their day below...

 

 

 

 

edition 3:

Adventures with Cutthroat 

 

We recently had the pleasure of taking out our first high alpine fishing adventure for the summer. We will let the photos from our guides Mike Wallace, and Matt Campanella  do the talking on this one... 

 

 

 

 

Edition 2: 

family creekin

Its always a great exeprience to share a beautiful place, and a few trout with the family!

 

 

Small creeks often boast diverse bug life, like these large yellow mayfly nymphs (also note the large caddis larva in its net of vegetation).

 

An enormous cased caddis larva that used pebbles to build it's case...

 

The Lamson Remix is a great creek reel, light, dent resistant, and fully sealed.  It was a blast to fish on this Scott Rods 3 weight.

 

The trout where just as pretty as the reel...

After finding quite a few large yellow mayflies I decided to throw a small yellow hopper traling a size 16 bead head Pheasant Tail Nymph in a bleached yellow color, about 2 feet deep.  Both flies hooked trout.

 

Always bring your number 1 girl to handle the Rising Brookie Net...

 

 

Extra karma points if you pack out any trash you find (another great way to use your rising net)...

 

 

edition 1:

size vs. beauty

Sometimes fishing smaller creeks  can be a sacrafice of fish size for beauty, solitude, and a unique experience.  In our opinion this is usually a good trade....

 

It may not be huge, but its hard to to find tail better than this....
