Fish Ass Friday!

Our first instalment of Fish Ass Friday!

A lot of what we see on social media today are standard, run of the mill face and side shots of fish. Well, for those who truly appreciate the tail, anal, and caudal fins, we introduce F.A.F.

Every Friday, we will post photos of the piscatorial posterior side of nature. All species of fish will be featured, with nothing ahead of dorsal in evidence.


Our first! And for those who use it, go to our Facebook page on Fridays.

If you like the Fish Ass photo you will be entered for a prize draw.

And if you guess what species of fish it is in the comments you'll be entered in a draw for a second prize.

The World's Most Interesting Man


Mike Guinn continues his status as "the world's most interesting man". When faced with the rear quarter of his trailer frame breaking off, what does he do? The W.M.I.M absconds with a fence post, uses his anchor rope to tie everything up, and brings everyone home safely.

Kojak becomes MacGyver!

Fishing Reports - August 20


Bow River Report –August 20, 2014
Trico fishing has been coming along nicely to provide a perfect wa to use up a few hours of your morning.

Hopper/foam fly fishing has been pretty good. The hopper/dropper thing has been kind of inconsistent. At times you’ll get a bunch of eats on the nymph, but at other times hardly anything. The dry fly stuff has been good enough that most of our guides have been leaving the nymph off and just fishing dry.

Streamer fishing continues to be good.

Don’t forget, the Fish Creek boat launch is closed for about two weeks for repairs. All other downstream launches are open.

Hatches: Tricos, Caddis

Streamers: Clouser-Brown/White, Geek Leech-Purple, Silvey’s Scuplin Leech-Olive/Black/White Head, Love Bunny, Circus Peanut.
Nymphs: Heavy Metal Worm, Atomic Worm, Tung Stud, B/H R/L Hares Ear, Tung Dart, Hotwire Caddis
Dry Flies: Bloom’s CDC Caddis, Spent Partridge Caddis, Silvey’s Edible Emerger, Chubby Chernobyl-Purple, Fat Albert, Two-Tone Para Ant,
