Happy Halloween to all of you! I red a post about haunted rivers this morning from the amazing blog Gink And Gasoline and thought I would share it here!
Make sure to check it out!
These are shots I took in September during the last week of trout season.
I did not fly fish for trout a lot the last season but these few moments were very cool.
Southern Ontario’s trout water has a lot to offer and I can’t wait to discover more of it!
Od to an awesome dad!
This is Stian Lervik latest video! I really want to be that dad one day!
What a year it was for the guys at Hooké! So many fish, so many adventures!
Check their 2014 recap of it all!
I love tees and I wear them all the time. I though about writing a little article to talk about some of my favourites.
Trout Names – The Fly Trout
Joe from The Fly Trout has made some really cool print t-shirts since he started in 2011. My favourite is the Trout Names tee. Joe created TFT exactly for the same reason I like tees myself, just to represent who we are as fly anglers.

STLHD – H&H Outfitter
These guys work a ton to make their business successful and you can tell by the great product they make. I’m slowly getting into steelheading since I moved to Southern Ontario and H&H are from Oregon where the steelhead fly fishing is among some of the best in the Pacific North West. So, the STLHD t-s. is the one I have chosen to feature here but they have a whole bunch on their website. They even do custom work with fly fishing leaders like Echo and other fly shop.

Housekeeping – Strip’nFlywear
Dave Hartman started Strip’n Flywear as a joke among his friends but the artistic and humoristic side of Hartman is clearly why the company’s is having a lot of success. This one, the Housekeeping t-s is an ode to carp fly fishing! Showing your love for that golden scaled vacuum cleaner, oh so fun to target on the fly. Dave is also working on projects to protect Bristol Bay from the mining companies that want to build a giant mine right in the watershed of the Bristol Bay Ecosystem.

Native – Rep Your Water
I’ve been a brook trout aficionado since I was a kid. I grew up fly fishing for them and it is still my favourite species up to this day. This is why I like the Native t-s from Rep Your Water. RYW started in Colorado and use to design images representing this state. Now it has expanded to almost all states and regions with their specific gamefish species! They are also engaged in conservation by sharing 1% of their profit to organizations like Wyoming Trout Unlimited, Wild Steelhead Coalition, The Bonefish and Tarpon Trust, and the Alaska, Utah and Montana Chapters of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers.
