Our Predictions for 2013

The end of our 2012 guide season has essentially arrived. We actually have a few more guide trips on the calendar for December, but we have fewer trips between now and New Year’s Day than we typically do in a short week at other times of the year. Now that there’s some time for reflection […]

Wrap Up of Our Trip to the Henry’s Fork & Yellowstone Park

We’ve been back home in the Smokies a few days but I’ve been recovering from an illness that started before our trip and only seemed to get worse with every day on the water. After a few days of intense recovery aided by a shot at the doctor’s office and prescription antibiotics, I think I […]

A Four Minute Trip to Yellowstone

We always head to Yellowstone in September, sometimes for as long as three weeks at a time. That’s still a ways off, but we found this beauty of a video over a Chi-Wulff and had to share it. This has some beautiful time lapse as well as nice scenes of wildlife in Hayden Valley, Lamar […]

A Year in the Life of R&R Fly Fishing, 2011 edition

Now that the water has been high much of the time and the weather has turned cold we’ve gone back and taken a look back at the year we’ve had. It seems like the life of fly fishing guides is all fun and games, but it’s really quite hectic. It’s only now when we’re not […]

Kicking Off Our Week at TroutHunter on the Henry’s Fork Right!

We’re all settled in here at TroutHunter on the beautiful Henry’s Fork in Idaho a short distance from Yellowstone National Park. Everyone met their guide at breakfast, discussed their experience level and preferred methods of fly fishing, and headed out for the water.

My Trip to Yellowstone: Ian & Craig’s Excellent Adventure

I recently spent six days fly fishing in Yellowstone National Park. Craig Langer who runs the FlyBook from Portland, Oregon joined me. It was a great week of camping, fishing, and hiking in our first national park. We started our trip by hiking into a relatively unfished section of the Yellowstone River. Cutthroat trout were […]

Icy Weekend on Smoky Mountain Streams

It was a cold weekend; one better suited to ice fishing than fly fishing here in the Smoky Mountains. Overnight temperatures were below zero high in the mountains and daytime highs were only in the 20’s. Needless to say, fishing wasn’t worth it, but we went out to see the rivers and streams. Water just […]

Our Wrap Up from the Madison River and Slide Inn

We’re finally home and while I always get a bit misty when I leave Yellowstone country, it’s very nice to have the beautiful Smoky Mountains and colorful trout to return home to. Every year is different on the Madison. September is a time of dynamic weather in Montana when you can get a sunburn one […]

Dry & Cool on the Stream plus Update from Yellowstone

Conditions are dry but relatively cool across the Smoky Mountain region of East Tennessee and Western North Carolina. Fly fishing will be best on the Tennessee side of the Smokies and on the tailwaters. Cataloochee is at or near record low flows right now. The Oconaluftee is a little better, but still quite low. Little […]
