As the trail meets the rivers edge you take in a breath of sweet pine air, so rich and clean you can almost taste it. Your eyes glance from left to right as your swept away by the beauty of the cold morning breeze lifting the warmth of the water into a mist.


A rush of tranquility takes hold of you. So excited, so focused, a sense of peace and happiness take root as you see in your minds eye; a monster steel head on the end of your line.

These moments plant seeds in our heart and flower into a desire to continue mastering the art of fly fishing. Part of this quest involves finding out what flies are working.

Lets focus for a moment on Bill Castaways Question?

“To the crew  at seamwater; I have been fly fishing off and on for the past 2 years, as my busy schedule allows. During this time I have built confidence in my presentation and choice of water, but the fish just don’t seam to wanna bite my fly. I live in the Pacific Northwest and fish for salmon. Can you give me an idea what the fish are biting on this time of year?”

The joy of the hunt! Finding the right pattern can seem challenging and we have spent hours not catching fish, so we know how you feel. There are so many patterns available and everyone has their own idea of  “The Fly” that’s hooking fish. Along With Pattern selection, its also important that we understand why the fish bite certain patterns. This will be covered in more detail in in upcoming article.
