The Best in Fly Fishing from Around the Web

It's a dirty job but someone's got to do it. As much as we would love to be out there casting a fly ourselves, the powers that be keep us handcuffed to our desks - forcing us to watch fly fishing videos, look at pictures and read angling reports, day and night. This page is the result of our labours. Take pity on us and have a read, and if you can find the time, drop a note on our Facebook page and let them know what an ace job we're doing. Please?

TIGHT LINES, you crazy fly fishermen, you. We love you. We salute you. (And we ARE you!).

Fly fishing nymphs on Pitsford Reservoir

Nice rainbow trout

    Seeing as the weather is so awful, here’s a story I’ve had saved for a while… It was late spring in 2012 and Bob (Church) had fished in a friendly match at Pitsford earlier that week, boating seven large rainbows. Graham Pearson, Bob’s boat partner and semi-professional trout match fisherman, had caught even […]

Tarpon video, Costa Rica

Definitely better in full-screen mode. I know it’s 7 minutes long, but I hope you make it through to the end!! All the best, Jim  

Tarpon fishing at Silver King Lodge, Costa Rica

30lb Jack on Fly

I have just about recovered from the endless delays and missed connections James and I suffered on our recent excursion to Silver King Lodge in Costa Rica, thanks to the bungling inefficiency of American Airlines, and would strongly advise travellers to avoid flying with them at all costs if there is an alternative?! I won’t […]

Fly fishing for GTs in Christmas Island

Christmas Island GT on fly

Before fishing for giant trivially on Christmas Island, I’ve been lucky enough to catch a number of the brutes elsewhere. I’ve had giant trevally (GTs, as opposed to G&Ts, to which I’m also a bit partial!) up to 70lbs fishing in the Seychelles (now a ‘no go’ area because of the Somali pirates!) and also […]

Catch rooster fish in Baja Mexico

Rooster fish in Baja, Mexico

One fish I have for a long time admired, but never thought I would ever catch, is the rooster fish – dashingly handsome and by reputation electrifyingly fast. If this were not enough, being a member of the jack family (which also includes the giant trevally/GT), the ferocity of its fight is legendary. It was […]

Where and how to catch big tarpon on fly

Tarpon fly fishing Costa Rica

My first (and only-so far) trip in search of catching a silver leviathan on fly was last October, and began with two longish flights firstly from Heathrow to New York, and then on to San Jose in Costa Rica. Flying is usually a bit of a pain and tiring, but has to be endured if […]
