Wade Fishing - 3 Tips for Catching More Fish

In this video, I hike into a Northern Minnesota Smallmouth Stream to showcase a few new ties: the Slow Jig Clouser and Firefly 2.0, while giving you guys 3 simple tips to make your next wade fishing trip more productive, and put more fish in the net.

Dirty Water - Smacking the Banks!

This is an older video from when I worked at Kelly Galloup's Slide Inn. Here I'm fishing sections of the Upper Madison River in MT, throwing large 5"-6" Black sculpin Flies 1 ft from the bank! Good rules of thumb 1: Match fly color to water color
2: High Water - fish the bank and "soft water"
3: Loud Water - Smack the fly to get attention
4: Wounded Fish try and escape DOWNSTREAM - so cast up/retrieve down

Fly Size -
Volume vs. Length

I am in no way advocating chucking 12" streamers for trout - but right place/right time that may just be the thing to do...just simply trying to share some thoughts about the typical size comparison between predator and prey. I personally am a huge believer in matching the average size of the highest density forage within each respective system, regardless of the predator you are targeting - thus treating most predators the same, trout included. Hopefully seeing a 14" bass tackle a 12" fly puts a smile on your face and gives you some new perspective on fishing bigger flies.
