I’ve had my eye on a lake since late last year. Like most of the lakes I obsess over, I’m not really sure how it came to my attention, but once it did, I couldn’t shake the idea of fishing it. It was a hike-in lake, for starters. That immediately pushes something to as close […]
[This is the first in a series of posts about somewhat unconventional advice for becoming a better angler. It’s not tips, tricks or tactics, as such, but suggestions for becoming an overall better angler that you might not otherwise think of.] A little over a year ago I did something I don’t normally do: I went […]
A few weeks ago I was out fishing a lake I had never fished before. The lake was a little more out-of-the-way than the ones I normally visit and it was at a much higher altitude than I was used to, both of which were very exciting to me.
As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been lucky enough to spend a fair bit of time fishing with my dad lately. It’s been great. We used to fish together as often as we could, usually dependent on things like how much time we had or who’s place we were at, the typical things. These […]

When I first started reading about fly fishing in BC’s Southern Interior, which was not long after I started fly fishing, it felt like all I read about was chironomids. I read about how they’re the main food of the rainbow trout for the first month or so after ice off, I […]
When I first moved to BC back in 2011, I found the fishing to be kind of tough. I’d never really seen a trout before, let along fished for one, so I didn’t know what I was doing. I spent the first couple of years fishing like I would normally and not catching a blessed […]
I went fishing the other day. After a couple of hours of driving around in circles exploring the area and not really finding anything interesting, I pulled up alongside another body of water that, at it’s deepest, was almost shallow enough to stand up in. I spent the rest of the day getting soaking wet, […]
