Trout Takes

Amongst the rhododendrons in Appalachia, casting lanes can be hard to locate and are often not where the cover-comfortable fish hang out. Roll casts can help in some situations but you’ve gotten yourself into a tight spot and only a special cast can connect you to a fish that isn’t too far off the tip of your rod. However, you’ve read this article and have added a deadly accurate bow & arrow cast to your arsenal. Here are some tips for sticking more fish without “casting”. 

Attacking a pond is like a therapy session. Once the truck is in park and your poles are in hand all the problems of the world drown underneath the orchestra of frogs. The familiar smell of sulfur fills the air with an aroma disliked by those living too fast and loved by us who like to feel the mud between our toes.

Summer time in the American Rockies is a true right-of-passage for any angler, especially for those of you who choose to make it your first foray into the world of fly angling.  Welcome to the Mountain Top, Chief.  Literally.   So for the noobs hitting the rivers of Montana, Colorado and Idaho over the next few weeks: Here's your go to shopping guide so you don't fish or look like one.

Attacking small water is closer to hunting than it is fishing. Skittish creek trout must be stalked rather than waded up on. Due to the limited space, your sounds and movements as you approach can cause quite a ruckus. Like bow hunting, the angle of attack for creeks is stealthy with an acute awareness of environment and your impacts to it.
Barring one more cold snap, we’ve made it. Spring is here and the fish activity along the Blue Ridge Mountains is on! To make the best of your time on the water, we here at The Sporting Gent bring you a beginner’s guide to fishing the majesty of the rhododendron-choked blue lines of the Southern Appalachians...
