Dealing With Weather and Fighting the Elements

Pushing through the tough times — dealing with bad weather and difficult conditions — puts you one step ahead of most anglers. The rivers and the parking lots are empty when the wind is howling, the snow is blowing or it's pouring rain. Sure, we'd all like to fish the sweetheart days. But the more you learn to fight the elements and win — to have success on the water — the more you long for those tough conditions.In this episode, my friends and I talk about fighting fighting the elements. How can we effectively fish through rain, wind, cold weather, ice, snow, hard sun and everything else that nature throws at us?There's always some natural element that we're battling out there (usually it's more than one). And if we don't have a plan for dealing with these elements, we fail.None of us spends enough time on the water. For the Troutbitten angler, the draw to the river is ever-present. And we plan for the next trip as the previous one winds down. So we fish when we can. Instead of waiting for the best conditions, the die-hard angler fishes because it's Sunday, or because it's Tuesday evening after work, or because it's Monday morning after dropping the kids off at school. Few of us have the luxury to pick and choose our times on the water, so every angler who wishes to fish, quickly learns to deal with tough conditions.Some anglers walk away when the going gets tough. But as we all know, sometimes the best fishing happens in the toughest conditions. So we fish hard. We persevere. We adapt and meet the challenges before us. And quite often, some of our most memorable days happen in these harsh or difficult conditions.So my friends are join me to share some tips, some ideas about how to get through the elements and get to the end of the day, not just with trout in the net, but with lasting memories and satisfaction.It's not just about meeting the challenges. And it's not just about having fewer anglers on the water. It's the satisfaction of being a complete angler. You're ready for anything. Because you know you can catch trout in the rain, the snow, the cold or the sun. You have a system and a method of approach. Then instead of shying away from tough conditions, you welcome every new day — no matter the weather -- as a chance to go fishing.Question and Answer RoundWhat are the basic tools needed for fly tying?Does rod balance matter?Why are so many fly anglers also guitar players?Do you most enjoy fishing alone or with a friend?ResourcesREAD: Troutbitten | Category | Fly Fishing in the WinterREAD: Troutbitten | Find the best light angles, and see what you're fishingREAD: Troutbitten | Fly Fishing in the Winter -- Ice In the Guides?READ: Troutbitten | How to Wet Wade (The Gear and System)READ: Troutbitten | You Stink -- It's the Wader FunkREAD: Troutbitten | River and RainVisit:Troutbitten WebsiteTroutbitten InstagramTroutbitten YouTubePre-Roll SponsorsVisit Grip StudsVisit Tactical Fly Fisher

They answer a few questions, and they read a few from podcast listeners.Way back in 2014, I started Troutbitten as a way to document all of this for my two sons. I wanted a record of the fishing stories and the things that I'd learned about trout fishing over the years. Really, that was the goal. Those were the roots of Troutbitten.My boys have been part of my fishing life since their beginnings. They've been out there with me since they were born. I was a daytime Dad, and I worked at night. So the boys and I spent many, many days hiking beside rivers, eating lunch streamside and casting into moving water. My goal has always been to give them a base of appreciation for the outdoors and to feel comfortable in nature. Of course I hope they keep fishing with me as they grow older, but if nothing else, they will always have the sounds of a river embedded deep in their memories.Question and Answer RoundJoey, what's your favorite way to catch trout?Aiden, what do you like best out there, besides the fishing?Joey, what's the best way to get a kid into fishing?From Podcast Listeners:Does the clinch knot for connecting the leader to the fly line loop cut into the fly line?Has their ever been a time when you wanted to quit fishing?

Breaking Down Streamer Presentations

While fishing a streamer, we're trying to make it look alive. That's the difference. Because, while fly fishing other styles, we spend so much of our time dead drifting dry flies and nymphs and trying to impart no motion, that switching to streamers is a relief. It's liberating. It's fun.And so many presentations — so many looks to the streamer — can be attractive and convincing. Because everything works sometimes.But day to day, some retrieves and presentations just work better. And there's no question about it. Sometimes, hammering the banks with a fast jerk-strip brings the big trout out to play. And other days it's a soft crossover technique that really turns on those same trout.The joy of streamer fishing is that so many things can work. And trying them all is a great way to spend our time on the water.On a dry fly, I'll tell you what they want: It's a dead drift. On a nymph? Same thing. And the closer you can get to that pure, unaltered drift, the more convincing your fly presentation will be.But on streamers? Show them a slow slide or a head flip. Give them a speed lead, a touch-and-go or an endless retrieve. See what works.That's the fun of streamer fishing. Make the fly look alive in the water. It's not dead drifting anymore — it's swimming a living baitfish that can do a bunch of predictable and unpredictable things.Sometimes it seems like the trout are looking for one kind of action on the fly — or at least that's what turns them on most. Other times, many of these presentations seem to work. But the point is to make that fly swim. Give life to the streamer. Convince the trout that they're looking at a living, swimming creature.And that's what this podcast conversation is about -- breaking down streamer presentations. How do we move the fly with the line hand and the rod tip, with strips, jigs, twitches and more? We talk about head position, depth, speed and holding vs crossing currents and seams. We touch on natural looks vs attractive ones. Should we make it easy for them or make them chase?This discussion, with four of my best fishing friends, is about what makes each presentations to the fly unique. How does what we do on our end of the line affect what happens at the other end?We Discuss the FollowingStripping and hand twistingLine hand motion vs rod tip motionRod position upon fly entryContact vs slackJig, jerks, twitches, pulses, stripsHead positionDepthSpeedHolding seams vs crossing seamsNatural vs attractive presentationsMake it easy or make them chaseResourcesREAD: Troutbitten | Category | StreamersREAD: Troutbitten | Modern Streamers -- Too Much Motion?READ: Troutbitten | Streamers as an Easy Meal -- The Old School Streamer ThingREAD: Troutbitten | Streamer Presentations -- The Death DriftREAD: Troutbitten | Streamer Presentations -- The Deadly Slow SlideVisit:Troutbitten WebsiteTroutbitten InstagramPre-Roll SponsorsVisit Grip StudsVisit Tactical Fly Fisher

From beer labels to literary classics like A River Runs Through It, trout fishing is a beloved feature of the iconography of the American West. But as Jen Brown demonstrates in Trout Culture: How Fly Fishing Forever Changed the Rocky Mountain West (U Washington Press, 2017), the popular conception of Rocky Mountain trout fishing as a quintessential experience of communion with nature belies the sport's long history of environmental manipulation, engineering, and, ultimately, transformation. A fly-fishing enthusiast herself, Brown places the rise of recreational trout fishing in a local and global context. Globally, she shows how the European sport of fly-fishing came to be a defining, tourist-attracting feature of the expanding 19th-century American West. Locally, she traces the way that the burgeoning fly-fishing tourist industry shaped the environmental, economic, and social development of the Western United States: introducing and stocking favored fish species, eradicating the less favored native "trash fish," changing the courses of waterways, and leading to conflicts with Native Americans' fishing and territorial rights. Through this analysis, Brown demonstrates that the majestic trout streams often considered a timeless feature of the American West are in fact the product of countless human interventions adding up to a profound manipulation of the Rocky Mountain environment.

How Many Trout Do You Catch? Expectations, the Liars and Reality

We're out there to catch trout. That's what brings us to the water. But how many do we catch? And really, how many should we catch? What are the expectations? And how can we know that we're fishing well?In some way, maybe none of this matters. It's not really about numbers, right? it's about the experience.Sure it is. And we all agree with that. But as I've written on Troutbitten, there are two sides to every fisherman — one that just wants to go fishing and is happy to be out there, and another that desperately wants to understand the techniques — to solve the ever present mystery of how to catch more trout. And Troutbitten aims to address both of these sides.In truth, it's the tactical side that keeps us coming back. Most long-term anglers go fishing to learn something and to improve a skill. And as we learn and refine our craft, we enjoy everything that the woods and the water give to us. The endless discovery is the joy of trout fishing. We're thankful that it's different every day, and we know we'll never learn or experience all of it.So if the goal is to improve and study and refine, then the numbers in the net do matter. Because it's the trout that ultimately decide if the drift is any good. The trout tell us if we've solved that daily mystery. A fish at the end of the line is confirmation that our decisions and efforts are good ones.Counting is a way to gauge our success, not just against how well we did last time out, but how well we are doing compared to what is possible. What's the bar? What's the ceiling? How many trout could be caught if we had everything just right — the best fly and the perfect drift.I think every fisherman asks those questions — How am I doing relative to what is possible?And that . . . is what this podcast discussion is about.We Discuss the FollowingCatch rate vs catch numbersConditions and expectationsStaying groundedWhat is a catch?Sometimes the goal is not to catch the most troutAll fishermen are liarsTypes of trout and changing expectationsHow chosen tactics change expectationsResourcesREAD: Troutbitten | Fly Anglers in Profile -- The Numbers GuyREAD: Troutbitten | Two Sides to Every FishermanREAD: Troutbitten | How to Fish With FriendsREAD: Troutbitten | Missing the MorningsVisit:Troutbitten WebsiteTroutbitten InstagramTroutbitten YouTubeTroutbitten Facebook

In October, I was able to sit down with one of my favorite bands ONA.  Ona is a 5 piece band from West Virginia who all grew up in the same hometown. They released their first album in 2016 and have since released their second album in 2019. They have toured with artists such as Tyler Childers, Caamp & Houndmouth. A few days before this recording they had played their first-ever Red Rocks show. We talked about what that experience was like and how they formed as a band. 2 of the band members, 'Jeeter' and Zach, are actually big fly fishermen and we got to hear all about the fly fishing in their hometown. They also talked about the realities of being on tour and how they have been able to find time to fly fish while on the road. It's an awesome conversation and was really fun to hear the parallels that fly fishing and music shared with one another.

In this episode, my friends join me to share some of their best tips for reading water — seeing a trout stream, recognizing the currents in a river that hold trout and having the confidence to target them.Then we get into the philosophy of Cherry Picking or Full Coverage. That is, the speed at which we cover water. How fast do you move from one place to the next? And what are the merits of hole hopping or trying to efficiently cover every likely piece of river that holds a trout? Because there are a couple of different ways to approach your time out there. And it's helpful to think about the best ways to use it.Reading water is a skill to be learned intentionally or by accident. Among the hundreds of tactical articles on Troutbitten is a full category for reading water, where each article addresses one facet of the skill.Reading water is something we can all improve upon. By sharing tips, and by understanding how our friends look at the same piece of water, we can see the stream in a whole new way. My friends have some great tips for how they read water.The conversation then turns to cherry picking and full coverage . . .The fisherman's path leads from one prime spot to the next, leaving a good bit of the river — maybe most of it — unfished. That's cherry picking. It's choosing the best pieces of water and ignoring the rest. And it can be a great strategy for catching a bunch of fish . . . sometimes. But there are some caveats, too.Working an entire stretch of water can be harder. But once learned, it might be a more productive long-term strategy. Full coverage of the river reveals a lot more about trout habits and opens up opportunities to grow into a more complete angler. And once you catch on to the rhythm of the process, full coverage is a fun way to fish too. We discuss the merits and the best times for each approach.The Q&A Round CoversStreamer size vs streamer colorOrganizing fly tying hooks and beadsWhat's more memorable -- losing a big fish or landing one?Why Trevor hates lunch meatJosh and the PBJ revelationWe Discuss the FollowingPotholes in rifflesThe seams around rocksFinding water that is big-fish-speedLooking upstream to find the seamsFind feeding fish, then cherry pickCherry pick to save timeCherry pick out of necessityFull coverage as a learning toolFull coverage out of necessityResourcesREAD: Troutbitten | Category | Reading WaterREAD: Troutbitten | Cherry Picking vs Full CoverageREAD: Troutbitten | At the Front Door of Every RockREAD: Troutbitten | Look Upstream to Find the SeamsREAD: Troutbitten | Levels, Resets and New BeginningsREAD: Troutbitten | Every Rock Creates Five SeamsREAD: Troutbitten | Trout Like to Do What Their Friends Are DoingVisit:Troutbitten WebsiteTroutbitten InstagramTroutbitten YouTubeTroutbitten Facebook
