Very entertaining short edit out of WA state from Mark Steudel (Mark Steudel Fly Fishing Stories on Youtube and @msteudel on Instagram). Highlights are from a quick trip with Leaf Seaburg of Methow Fishing Adventures. Eats on dries. #flyfishing #DRYFTculture
With the warm easy days of summer fading in the rearview mirror, we took time out for a quick trip over the mountains to the dry and fertile area of Eastern Washington for some trout fishing. We met up with Leaf Seaburg of Methow Fishing Adventures, and set off with high expectations. All expectations were exceeded with plenty of fish catching and fun having. Enjoy these photos from this great early fall day on the river.
We woke up early (5:15am!), strapped up our DRYFT Primo Zip front waders, stuffed lunches and drinks into our BKCNTRY packs and headed for the river. Fishing didn’t slow up all day- with solid takes on dries and streamers keeping the action moving quickly from first light well into the afternoon.

All of the planning that goes into a backcountry hiking adventure is so worth it to find solitude in the mountains, along with plentiful and willing trout. This was our summer 2020 alpine adventure. There was hiking, camping in the woods, lots of fishing, boulder hopping, star gazing and paragliding.
High up in the mountains, we found a perfect campside nestled between boulders and trees. For the next three days we caught endless trout on a variety of flies and lures. Exploring the lake by raft and wading the shallows in our DRYFT SEEKR wading pants was a perfect way to experience all this area has to offer.
Having no previous firsthand knowledge of this area, this was a pleasant alpine surprise. Check out the photos below for some of the highlights.

What’s #DRYFTinAK all about? For the past few years the DRYFT crew has been exploring some of the delights Alaska has to offer. In this video series we’ll share some of the highs and lows from those adventures. Welcome to episode 1.
Recently we heard rumors of some half man half wolf beast terrorizing fish with a fly rod up on the Kenai. We investigated and this is what we found…
Oh, the horror.
When fall first hits, before the big rains, the rivers drop low and salmon move their way into the upper reaches. Bull trout follow, and so do we.
While getting ready to do the real business of the season, they certainly aren’t past cozying up behind spawning salmon and smacking a big bunny fly or egg sucking leech.
Rainbows, dollies, steelhead, silvers. AK trip 2015 was good to us. Here are some photos from the trip…
