Fishin' with NW Fly Fishing Magazine

Just got back from a day of fishing with Jon Luke and Steve Maedar from NW Fly Fishing Magazine. The guys were here doing their "Urban Angler" section on the city of Coeur d'Alene and asked me to participate in the piece. Due to the wonderful downpour we had on Tuesday we were only able to get one day in on the NF of the Coeur d'Alene River. People sometimes forgot how lucky they are to have a sweet river to float or wade fish in less than an hour from the city of Coeur d'Alene! With the changing weather the dry fly fishing was actually pretty tough but the streamer fishing was solid... the faster the retrieve/twitch the better!

Jon and Steve took lots of photos for the spread and from what I saw they should have some great ones. Looking forward to reading the article when it comes out next year! If you have never read that particular publication swing by the shop and grab a copy or check them out online at We will let you know when the article comes out!

Also a big thanks to Fay Mills (OMR - Old Man River) and Denny Hegewald (owner of Ron's Drive In) for helping us out with the article and dealing with my late ass.
