Brown Trout Hunting with Dylan Pearce

I got connected with Dylan Pearce this year through Social Media and others teens that fish with us. Dylan had been antsy to get me out to some of his favorite water for browns and rainbow trout. So finally it came time to go together. We explored this local watershed a couple times together and found success every time we went. Below are pictures and more about our tips. Read More->

Trip to Northern Cali

I love how Instagram allows us to see different areas of the world and connect  and sometimes even meet people we've only wrote back and forth to! I met some fishy dudes on Instagram through my Hooked On Life page. After almost a year of writing back and forth we finally made a plan for me to come down and fish with them. Read More->

Hooked On Giving

I titled this post  “Hooked On Giving” because deep down it can be hard to give, but once we learn, there is a sense of inner sweetness to the soul that longs to be felt over and over.  It took me a long time to come to realize this, but now that I know I wanted to share with you. Read More->

As I stood in my drift boat, casting big articulated streamers to big brown trout at East Lake, I was reminded of Gods spirit as the feeling of a gentle breeze swept across my face; making the water below my feet ripple. It’s interesting; How something so settle, can bring such comfort. Read More->

Slurping Red Sides - By: Mark Peterson

Every story has to have a beginning; standing on the edge of a river, so many of my beginnings seem to start out standing in a river. This beginning, however, holds to a stronger memory. This is a memory of a new season, on a river of legend, a river that demands your respect. This is a river that has seen the edge of time, that has captured every moment of every living creature in it. That has swallowed the earth, rock and sand that surrounds it; from the tears and sweat of the Indian tribes that first inhabited it, down to us today who look at it’s swift waters in awe, knowing it’s past and future dwarf our knowledge of what is and what will come.

Fly Fishing - A Form of Art

Before this weekend, I believed I was a skilled fly fisherman. This was prior to going out on the Rogue with the hooked on life crew. I’ve spent time on rivers and trout streams all over Oregon, I have a good grasp on matching the hatch and delivering a natural presentation to many hard to reach holes. I’ve pulled 20′ trout out of small desert streams and learned to track where fish will be at certain times of the year. Read More->
