I wanted to share with the followers of Upland Equations my latest writing endeavor.  I was approached last month by an online magazine called, Southern Idaho Living, to write articles on hunting and fishing.  Excited to branch out, I contributed an article for the May issue on good flies for Idaho waters entitled, “Ten Flies for Idaho Guys . . . And Gals,” which was just published this morning.  And it turned out great!

Here is a little teaser to pique your interest: 
Idaho is a fly fisherman’s paradise. This great state has it all from small freestone, pocket-water streams to raging rivers, warm-water reservoirs to alpine lakes, and meandering meadow streams to ultra-technical spring creeks. You can pretty much pick your passion and go with it. That’s what I love about this state.

For someone who is just starting out, this smorgasbord of fly-fishing goodness may seem a bit overwhelming. A good selection of flies for your fly box is an excellent place to start. While my boxes contain hundreds of other patterns, below are ten tried-and-true patterns for Idaho that I never leave home without . . . .
If you want to learn more about my go-to flies, you will have to go read the article!  Here is the LINK.  Please check it out and let me know what you think.
