S3:E49 Mysteries of the Fly Fishing Universe, Part 1

The Fly Fishing Universe is vast and filled with dark, unsolvable mysteries. One such mystery is, “Why are there no insect hatches on a perfectly overcast day in early spring when just the day before the caddis were coming off like a plague?” It’s a mystery. Just one of the great mysteries. In this hilarious episode, we explore five Mysteries of the Fly Fishing Universe. And make some feeble attempts to shed some light on the darkness.

The Fly Fisher’s Book of Lists

We’ve published a book for regular-Joe-and-Jane fly fishers called The Fly Fisher’s Book of Lists: Life is short. Catch more fish.

One person who purchased the book called it “cliffsnotes for fly fishers.”

To switch metaphors, perhaps it’s more like a handful of potato chips. It’s an entire book of lists. The goal is to help you find practical help quickly and in an easily digestible format!

  1. Fishing Oregon’s wonderful Metolius River with caddis nymphs I was fishless for at least an hour. Disgustedly, I decided to change patterns and began ripping my downstream nymph so I could clip it off and try something different. Three or four hard yanks and WHAM! First trout of the day. That tactic worked all day. But–it has never worked again and I have tried it often!
