Atop Agnes Lake trail, Montana
I am an extremely keen fly fisherman, focusing almost exclusively on trout, preferably wild. I particularly enjoy stalking trout with the aid of polaroids.
I tie my own flies and am a big fan of the Caucci/Nastasi style of tying for dry flies and emergers.
I fish mostly on the chalk streams of Southern England, particularly the River Test and its tributaries, and the freestone rivers of Western Montana and New Zealand’s South Island. I also enjoy some stillwater fishing, especially when fish can be spotted.
I use barbless hooks exclusively and am a proponent of catch-and-release.
Big Fish on Small Flies – the ‘200’ Club
Catching big fish on small flies is both challenging and rewarding, so here’s a rewarding challenge: multiply the size of your fish, in pounds, by the size of the hook you used to catch it. Can you get to 200…?!
