Provo River Clean Up Wrap Up

Provo River Clean Up Wrap Up

We want to send out a huge thanks to everyone who got involved in our Provo River Clean Up. It was a great success. We couldn’t have done it with out you… A lot of trash was taken away from the river. We filled two dumpsters and a trailer full of garbage. Amongst all the flip flops, cans and plastic bottles we found some interesting junk as well, a sunken canoe, torn raft, blown out tires, money safe, mattress and inner tubes. Thanks again for taking time out of your busy week and giving up a Saturday to help clean up after other people. We had a great time and hope you did as well. Next years clean up will be held on Earth Day May 22. Mark your calendars. 🙂 A big shout out to our partners.

Winters almost over!

Winters almost over!

Well as you probably know we’re a bunch of snowboard bums who don’t do much winter fishing. Now that the temps are getting warmer and the powder days are gone you might find us grabbing a different pair of boots… A couple nice browns that didn’t like the looks of the Drop Jaw Flies streamer Captain was throwing at... read more
The Fly Shop Alternative

The Fly Shop Alternative

In this day and age many local shops are out of business or have limited hours closing at 6pm on weekdays making it hard for the traditional 9 am to 5 pm working anglers to reach. Not to mention high priced fly shop materials are hard for the die hard angler with the part time job to purchase while maximizing their water time.   Hobby enthusiasts and mothers have been using the solution to these issues for decades. Fabric, hobby and crafting stores are an angler’s best friend when you are have a tight budget or cant get to a shop before it closes. From purchasing ceramic beads, to foam for hoppers they have some of the basics a fly tier needs to create some great looking flies while not breaking the bank. So next time you are looking for that variety bag of beads or pack of foam it will cost you both time and money for limited material when trying to make it to the fly shop or you can visit your local Michael’s and both of those issues will be solved.   Words by thedyeronsnow  ... read more
Mayflies in March

Mayflies in March

This past Sunday was a big one for us, after several months we finally got to see Mayflies on the top of the water, and the fish respond to them. Chasing the unforeseen is always easier with a couple of good friends, a case of beer, and oh yeah, not nymphing a size 22 midge to catch them. We were greeted at out first river bend by an Otter with the same idea that we had. From that point on the day was more about the sound of the river, and the wildlife that surrounds it, then the constant want of a tight line. Enjoy a few pics. Branden... read more
6 Reasons Why New York’s Salmon River in Oct is like a 30” February Powder Day

6 Reasons Why New York’s Salmon River in Oct is like a 30” February Powder Day

Since there hasn’t been much snow this past month its got us thinking about fishing. The Dyer has been reflecting on a recent trip to New York and how it compares to a powder day snowboarding. There are no friends on a Powder or River Day You fall behind you get left behind All human decency and societal norms are thrown to the side Cutting the lift line, slowly forcing someone out of  a hole and general politeness seems not to be an option Claiming how you got their soooo early to get the best hole or first chair is more important than the size of fish you caught or epic powder run.  You know the type of person I am talking about. Everyone comes out of the woodwork Haven’t seen “Bill” since your last day of junior high? Come to that first 30” powder day or the first weekend of the salmon run and chances are you will see him there! Every form of equipment is used no matter how old or nonfunctional it is Powder hounds and fish bums live on budgets. Some of these budgets ran out in the mid 90’s Getting a guide might help with the experience. Finding that secret pow stash or fishing hole is just a short $400 away…. Not including... read more
