Wow what a change of pace this weekend! Weather in the 80s was a nice change to the very cold and wet spring we have had to deal with this year. Fishing this weekend was awesome for us at the shop, The Nomad Anglers crew was able to slip away up north to chase some fish on streamers, oh boy was it a blast. We were moving fishing all day on streamers from 3 inches all the way to 8 inches and were lucky enough to hook a few. Most of the luck came from streamers that matched the bottom...

June is a month many of us cherish. We plan our lives around the behavior of winged insects and risk going a little crazy with changes in our sleep schedules. Swarms of mosquitos, waders caked with black silt, and even the occasional midge lodged underneath an eyelid…all of that discomfort seems to fade when trout start to rise.      Last week our northern rivers saw an emergence of brown drakes.
