Part 3 – Fly Fishing Carp: The Blind Presentation by D. Coulson 02.24.17
Once you locate areas holding carp, they're likely going to be feeding on the bottom. Getting flies to their level and keeping them there is the key to successful blind fishing for carp.
Part 2 – Fly Fishing Carp: Finding Carp You Can’t See by D. Coulson 02.23.17
It may seem obvious, but many overlook the simple reality, when blind casting your chances of success increase greatly if you're fishing areas where the fish are concentrated.
Part 1 – Fly Fishing Carp: Sight Fishing Presentation by D. Coulson 02.22.17
Nearly everyone who fly fishes for carp talks about sight fishing them and how difficult they are to catch. I do sight fish them, but in truth, I mostly blind cast to them. These three pieces cover my approach.
Today's Fishing Lesson by B. Prater 09.19.16
As something of a local legend, I am often asked, "Bill, why are you arguably the Loveland Fishing Club's finest bluegill angler?" /s
Muskie Fish'n by D. Coulson 07.12.16
Thanks to Matt, I had the privilege of fishing for Muskie in Canada the end of June, first of July. While I've yet to land a muskie, it was a great trip, and I did have opportunities to land one that I botched.

Warmwater Fly Fishing Gear Recommendations by D. Coulson 08.10.15

Seeing It Makes It More Exciting by D. Coulson 07.29.15
Feeling the tug on the other end of the line is a lot of what fishing is all about. Still, there's little doubt in my mind that having a visual element to your fishing makes all the more exciting.
Crossing the Technique Line by D. Coulson 06.11.15
So often I see anglers ignore great "catching" information simply because the catcher was fishing a method different from what the anglers were. Not smart.
Fly Fishing For Yellow Perch by D. Coulson 09.12.11
While not normally consider a method for yellow perch, the long rod, sinking lines, and streamers can be extremely productive, as we found out this last Sunday.
