Ozernaya River
Simply put, the Ozernaya is hailed as one of Kamchatak’s greatest trout fisheries. A broad and shallow river reminiscent of the Henry’s Fork, the Ozernaya is home to incredible populations of rainbows in the 20 to 27 inch class, trophy grayling, kundzha, Dolly Varden and coho. No matter when you visit this river, all you will need is a solid 7-weight, a floating line, a fistful of mice and sculpin and a strong fish-fighting arm! Anglers sleep streamside in simple, comfortable, two-person A-frame cabins complete with built-in padded cots, light and heat. The camp features a classic Russian banya (hot shower tent) and a main dining tent where hearty meals, beer and vodka are served each evening. Anglers will access more than thirty miles of pristine water with the aid of aluminum jet boats and skilled American and Russian guides. All fishing is done while wading and there are a number of interesting walk-and-wade tributaries awaiting adventuresome anglers. For those who want to experience the ultimate combination of high catch rates, large and unsophisticated rainbows, and true Russian wilderness, this is the ultimate trip.

Video - Desert Bass Fly Fishing by Todd Moen


Came across this great video today. Really good scenery and a great display of topwater smallmouth bass fly fishing. I think about the possibilities in this beautiful clear river. Topwater, streamer, contact and float-n-fly fishing all comes to mind.
Enjoy!

Airflo Super-DRI XCEED Fly Line


There are a lot of fast action rods around today. Most don't load very well short therefore making them hard to fish short and they don't make good tools to become better casters. Years ago you just jump up a line size to slow down these fast action rods.

A better solution today is to utilize a line that by design is bumped up in weight and also tapered to load quick. Airflo Super-Dri Xceed is created to do exactly that. The generously weighted head has a shortened, more aggressive taper than your average trout line. In the design of such a line we benefit with improved short loading cast as well as really good mid-range casting performance, which are the distances most fishing is done at anyway.
Designed to load today’s faster action fly rods. This slightly heavier weight forward head has a condensed taper optimized for casting into the wind and generating higher line speeds.

Features -
  • Taper: Quick-Load Taper
  • Core: Power Core
  • Range: WF3 – WF9
  • Coating: Super-DRI Ridged
  • Polyleader: Light Trout / Trout

RIO - Behind the Brand with Simon Gawesworth

RIO - Behind The Brand - Simon Gawesworth
"Casting, That's my real drug! Everything to me is about the cast. The cast is the one skill you can control." Simon Gawesworth

I get a lot of inspiration from Simon Gawesworth in this RIO video.
On one hand lakes are something I tend to ignore for trout fishing. Why? I don't know but I want to change that and set aside some time to take advantage of this type of trout fishing.

The next inspiring scene is Simon talking about the cast. "The cast is the one skill you can control." I find the better I understand casting the more I want to know. It's a constant strive to master casting and with that comes a never ending desire to continue to learn and improve. I never want to be able to say "I know all I need to know about fly casting." To me that would be the end of my passion.

The biggest inspiration for me comes in watching Simon cast. Great filming of single hand spey cast. Seeing these single hand cast really inspires me to continue learning the art of total line control with a single hand fly rod. The freedom one can achieve with a simple emerger rig, no indicator, tight line and learning how to manipulate flies for aggressive strikes is above and beyond controlled standards found in much of today's fly fishing.

I've been working with a single hand Sage X 597-4 fly rod with a RIO Single Handed Spey 3D F/H/I Fly line equipped with a 9ft leader and pair of soft hackle flies. The combination has helped me find incredible freedom in a simplistic way of fly fishing. Skilled while uncomplicated!
