WAYMENT BROTHERS’ ANNUAL COLORADO FISHING TRIP VIDEO

Last month, my son, Tommy and I headed to Colorado to fish with Brother Shawn for a few days.  We had a total blast and we caught a bunch of fish!  We took our Go Pro and filmed much of the trip.  Tommy made this video which we wanted to share with you all.  We…

Renegades, Root Beers & the Avett Brothers

Andy and I just finished our 4th annual Colorado fly fishing whirl-wind tour this past week. Traditionally the Arkansas River has a CFS around 1600 where we can wade the banks and throw big ugly bugs to voracious trout…but not the past two years. Colorado has had wet/cold spring causing delayed runoff. No despair…we Wayment…

Colorado Mountain Merriam’s & A 1937 NID Ithaca 16 Bore

Snow…it’s been the story of my spring season…the days I’ve been able to escape from work it has snowed 10 to 12 inches.  I’ve been patiently waiting to see the caddis & BWO’s bring hungry browns to the surface on my beloved Arkansas River and hear the Merriam’s love cry reverberate in the nearby Sangre…

Jalapeño Sauerkraut

It’s the in-between season…time to throw dries for Arkansas River browns and daydream about birds and dogs and wild country. The Ark has been incredible fishing so far this spring minus the snow melt in the higher elevation. The caddis are present and this spring we’ve seen the best blue wing olive action I can…

Halloween Fishing and Limber Tail Syndrome for Strideaway.com

Today the children were out enjoying festivities for Halloween while me and my childhood friend, Matt Lucia, enjoyed a great day on the Arkansas river. Our morning started out at Barry’s Den for a delightful breakfast while the sun warmed the river a bit. The fishing for the last day of October was rather surprising!…

Paying it Forward (or Even an 11 Bravo can be Taught to Fly Fish)!

The week of Independence means a great deal to me.  We live in the greatest country on planet Earth, and our freedoms are worth any sacrifice in my opinion.  On July 3rd, I decided to drive down to my favorite spot on the Arkansas River.  I was a little hesitant that morning about going fishing cause…

Chubby Mormon Girl

My absence the past few months can be explained…I’ve been crazy about a river. Not just any river, but the Arkansas River near my Sangre de Cristo mountains of southern Colorado. Most fisherman know of the Arkansas for it prolific Mother’s Day caddis hatch, but come run off time she goes largely ignored except for…

>Red, White, Blue & Greenbacks!

> What a day with blue bird skies. It started with some bird dog conditioning on rocky terrain trying to get them (and their feet) in shape (& me!) for our 2 week trip to Idaho this October to chase grouse, chukars, huns and valley quail. Followed by a trip to Barry’s Den at Texas…
