Winter escape to bonefish paradise

Recently some of us had the sublime opportunity to escape the PNW winter, to a beauty of a place called Belize, for a few days. Seven days chasing bonefish, permit, baby tarpon and more was everything it was imagined to be and more. Going from 38 degrees and raining to sunny skies, warm temps, and the very real threat of sunburn is about all you can ask for on a winter escape.

The time was enjoyed, and the Sun Wizard UPF hoodies performed ideally in these conditions, keeping the sun off our arms, heads and backs while our BKCNTRY backpacks and hip packs carried our gear in safety.

Snow & Steelhead

A calm day on the river after a snow is a magical thing. Snow in the trees, gentle flakes falling with little to no wind. A perfect day for a float, with dry hands, warm bodies and thoughts of leaping chrome fish. If we’re lucky enough to see a couple fish throughout the day we feel pretty good, and enjoy the time spent on the river with friends.

After all snow and winter steelhead pair together like so many good things. Bacon and eggs, bourbon and orange, peanut butter and jelly. Snow and steelhead.

Carrying a trout net with the BKCNTRY Fishing Backpack – This is how we do it.

Welcome to another Tips and Tricks video. In this video Nick shows how he carries his mid-length trout net while fishing with the BKCNTRY fishing backpack. In a previous video Jordan showed how he carries a long handle guide net, and this builds on that video by showing three additional ways to carry a net in an easy to reach position. Drop us a comment with questions or comments. Happy fishing!

Easy fly change tip with Jordan

This is a neat tip from Jordan Young-Treadway @treadwatersfly on how to tame your Skagit head and sink tip while swapping a fly without reeling in any line at all. If you’re working through a run and want to make sure that you start again at the same distance, this trick lets you easily swap flies without reeling in your line. Without tying off to your rod like Jordan shows here your fly line will float away and tug on your tippet, making swapping flies more difficult. Happy fishing!
