Underwater Fly Fishing Video

Remember to like (Thumbs Up) and share the video below if you think others will enjoy it as well.

Have you ever wondered what it looks like underwater when a fish eats your fly? Some follow for a while curious but unwilling, while others attack the fly the moment it hits the water! Filming this video was insightful to say the least, and although fly fishing high mountain lakes may not always produce large fish, the excitement is second to none.

Did you notice the fly box in the video? If you haven’t checked out Tacky Fly Boxes you should! Learn more at http://tackyflyfishing.com/ I’m currently transitioning from foam slit fly boxes to the silicone slit Tacky boxes for the majority of my flies. This box will enhance your fly fishing experience!

Tacky Fly Box

Most of the fish caught in this video were taken on a fly called Mason’s Houdini. It is an articulated leech pattern that fish (not only trout) can’t resist. Check it out, and other awesome fly patterns at http://rainysflies.com/

Mayfly-Fly Fisherman’s Favorite Bug

Within a quarter mile from where I live runs the Logan River. Despite the crazy number of mosquitos that appear each summer, there are many pro’s to living near a great trout stream. There is the obvious quick stroll to river for an evening of fishing, but also for a nerdy fly fisherman who likes bugs (well, the kind of bugs that fish eat) I enjoy the¬†reappearance of certain¬†insects each spring. I think my neighbors think I’m a little nuts for walking around my house with my camera taking¬†pictures of what must look like the exterior walls of my house, but it’s actually awesome tiny critters that I’m shooting. Here are some of my favorite shots from the past couple springs. Let me know which is your favorite in the comment section below.

Fish Per Minute- Euro Nymphing

Real time for this video clip is about five minutes. This is a single clip that was shot by my friend Brad a couple of weeks ago while we were fishing the Logan River. I am French Nymphing in this video, using a long leader with a three color HI-VIS sighter (available in our Euro Nymphing Fast Pack). Notice that the leader does not actually lay on the water at all. The key in this style of fishing is to allow your flies to sink and drift at the same speed as the current while keeping a tight connection between your rod tip and your flies. Thus, strike detection is increased drastically when compared to slack line systems (indicator nymphing). This tight line tactic works very well in MANY situations, but keep in mind there is a time and place for all different styles. Learning when to use the appropriate technique is all part of the fun that keeps us returning to the river as often as permitted. Keep tuning in for more videos and tips on Euro Nymphing, my favorite tool in my arsenal!
