Fly Fishing For Sea Run Brown Trout

February 09, 2021 2 min read

Epic Ambassador Peter Corzilius reflects on a recent Sea Run Brown Trout session in Sweden

Catching a large trout on a fly rod is the greatest achievement for many fly anglers. For most anglers trout are targeted in rivers and lakes around the world, but due to the migratory life cycle around Europe it is possible to catch these fish in the open ocean. A challenge that many – just as me – love and hate at the same time.

The Hang Of It - Fly Fishing. Why an Emerger will out fish your dry fly any day

May 20, 2020 3 min read

Fly Fishing Emergers. A semi-sunk fly projects more visible stimulus than a high and dry pattern, so it makes a lot of sense to use a design that penetrates the surface film as a ‘searching pattern’, rather than the high-riding flies usually recommended for this job like the Royal Wulff, Humpy or Elk Hair Caddis. For me, the old dry hackle jobs have been moved well down the bench, even for fast broken water.

FiberGlass Fly Rods - From Glass to Back: Coming Full Circle

July 10, 2019 4 min read

The first decent glass fly rod I owned was a vintage brown glass Fenwick. A tad short, a bit stiff, and with a plastic triangular tube that didn’t hold its shape and couldn’t keep its cap, it worked, and fairly well. Next I stepped up to an Orvis Golden Eagle, the last glass fly rod I purchased until just a few years ago. But that’s where it ended as I was swept up by the graphite tide.
