Fishing High Water

04/16/14 at 04:00 PM | by Vince Puzick

What’s a fly fisher to do during higher flows and off-color water?  Stay home?  Do yard work?  But wait — fly fishing just can’t come to a stop, right?  I had the chance to talk with our Guides to answer that very question.  Steve Gossage, one of our Guides, says “No, fishing does not stop in off color water. Sometimes it can be a blessing.”

Yoga and Fly Fishing: A Natural Combination

04/05/14 at 06:30 AM | by Vince Puzick

About a year ago, I had a fantastic opportunity of taking a yoga class from a Tibetan monk.  He led us through a series of poses, cracked some jokes (he really did have a great sense of humor), and taught us to be aware of our breathing as he put us through this workout.  I had to swallow my pride quite often in the 90 minutes with him.  I lost my balance, couldn't quite hold the pose correctly, and found myself holding my breath rather than letting it flow.  And since that time, I have practiced those poses on an almost daily basis ... and it has improved my fly fishing experience.

03/05/14 at 05:37 PM | by David Leinweber

The hidden engine behind our fish and wildlife management is this 10% tax. It has brought species like white tail deer and turkey back from the brink and puts fish on your fly regularly. I know taxes are a hot button subject, and I’m not looking to start a political debate ...

Kirk Deeter: Presenting at Colorado Springs Fishing Show

02/24/14 at 03:30 PM | by Vince Puzick

When I grow up, I want to be Kirk Deeter. As an editor-at-large for Field & Stream magazine, Kirk Deeter gets paid to travel all over the world, catch fish, and write stories about those experiences. Wherever he goes, the number one question he gets is: "Of all the places you've visited and written about, what is your favorite?” The answer he gives is always the same: "I live where I live (in Colorado) for a reason.” Kirk will be presenting at 9:30 at the Colorado Springs Fishing Show (doors open at 9:00!) this Saturday, March 1, at Angler’s Covey.
