I had posted this post back at the beginning of September of a show we filmed with Jimmy Houston and have since received some pictures from the trip as well as the approximate date of Airing of the show. We will see the show air on the Versus Network sometime in mid July and when I get the exact date I will let everyone know..... Cheers

 

   

 

August 23rd saw us on the water with fishing legend Jimmy Houston filming for an upcoming episode. We managed to get a fly rod into his hands, and he made it work, showing us how it was done on his second cast by hooking a large Chinook which threw him on a jump. We hooked a number of Sockeye salmon and a couple of beautiful Bull Trout at various parts of the river before heading to the "Ace In the Hole" at he last part of the day. Jimmy and his daughter Sherri lit it up with Sockeye after Sockeye and didn't stop until long after the camera was out of film and the batteries were dead. It was awesome to see someone who has been fishing for so long and done just about everything still lovin' it so much...... Well Done Jimmy.

Pictures will be coming soon and I will post the air time of the show when we find it out.

More Fly Fishing For Sturgeon

clock April 7, 2010 09:09 by author curtis

Tides were looking good the other day so we decided to tackle some Sturgeon..... Fly tackle them that is. We landed 6 fish in total on the fly rods with 2 of them being equal to our 3rd largest. We managed to get a bunch of it on video also so stay tuned.

 

The one below has a nasty net cut. The net was embedded over an inch all around the fish. We managed to cut the net and get it off of him so hopefully he will recover. Probably the best thing he could have done was get caught.

 


Fly Fishing for Sea-Runs

clock April 7, 2010 08:43 by author curtis

Sea run cutthroat can be the most frustrating and the most rewarding trout to catch. There are times when you can spend most of the day just trying to find them. This year we have found many more rewards than frustrations. It seems a resurgence of hatchery stocking as well as rebounding wild stocks has the Cutthroat numbers climbing higher than we have seen in a long time. This Winter, shoals of juvenile cutts (10-15") were living in several riffles of the main stem Fraser and up to 40 fish days were not unheard of. Now that the large fish are done producing next years stocks, they are back in the rivers and eating hard on the newly emerged fry. We have had several trips over the last couple of months and all have been very successful. here are a few photos:

 

 

 

We have even been getting them to rise to a dry fly skated as fast as you can pull it.... Talk about exciting grabs we even managed to catch this one on camera. With the high speed shutter blaring this is two consecutive photos of a cutthroat attacking the dry and the subsequent miss as the fly doesn't find a hold.

 

Quite a display none the less
