Spring Cleaning

Well it's that time of year again and if you're like many of us you simply put your gear away at the end of the season after your last outing. If you're were ambitious you might have made it out to some of the Winter Casting sessions. In either case, your fly line is probably in need of a good cleaning before you put it to use this season. For those of you that are new to fly fishing, Rio provides a couple of instructional videos on how to properly clean your line.

Local Opportunities

This weekend's hot spell following the cold front that just moved through the region this week should trigger some exceptional smallmouth action on the local rivers. Flocks of seagulls could be seen yesterday evening gorging themselves on what was a massive mayfly hatch. For those of you that have your favorite spots on the Mississippi River, this weekend could be one of the season's best, and don't forget to bring along some large dry flies (#8 Stimulators, etc.)

Tight Lines!
