Holy Water Salmon Fly is my best salmon fly pattern for the Rogue River

I love the end of May! it means a couple of things. First, Holy Water Salmon Flies here on the Rogue. Second, the Williamson River and its trophy trout is opening. As grand as all that is this year's May  is even better as LTS Flyfishing has introduce several new rods, one of which is the perfect, and I do mean perfect salmon fly rod...the LTS 690-4 Ephemera. This rod is a silky smooth dry fly rod that can flat put some line out. I'm like a kid in a candy store. If you haven't given LTS a shot you should...see what everyone is talking about.

In celebration of the last week of May I have decided to share a super effective salmon fly pattern with you. it was born on the Holy Water and catches fish when they stub their nose at everything else. Go fish them and have some fun.

Spey Fishing outside the box....Who made the box anyhow?

From the very beginning of my fly fishing I learned how to get the perfect drift. There are days when the steelhead wont move to a swung fly, or when you have to get the fly down to their level before you induce the swing. I have found this technique to come in handy for such days. Don't let the hardcore swingers out there give you to much heart burn if you decide to try this technique...after all its fishing.... enjoy the River.
