San Diego Fly Fishing

California Suggested Hoot-Owl Restriction

Suggested Hoot-Owl Closures

“Many of our inland fisheries that rely on cold water habitat will likely be significantly impacted in the short and long term,” said CDFW Inland Fisheries Manager Roger Bloom. “California's drought cycles have required us to learn to manage fisheries with extreme variations in water flows. The last drought resulted in significant effects to fisheries that took years to recover from. We hope the self-imposed Hoot Owl restrictions by anglers will help mitigate those effects.”

Best Grasshopper Patterns

Best-Grasshopper-Paterns for trout

Warm windy afternoons with the clicking sounds of Grasshoppers flying through the summer breeze will get any fly anglers heart racing. But what hopper pattern should you choose? That’s always the delema when I hit up a river. What size do I use? What color? Foam or not to foam? Those are the real questions. In this blog I will go through my favorite Grasshopper patterns and when/why I fish them.

Tungsten Beads

Ever since I started fishing, it was engrained into my head the value of tungsten beads, especially when euronymphing.  Tungsten has a density of 19.3 grams per cubic centimeter, while brass has a density of 8.73 grams per cubic centimeter and lead being 11.34 grams per cubic centimeter. 

The added density means a smaller bead to get your fly down into the feeding zone.  With the popularity of euronymphing, this is now more or less common knowledge amongst fly anglers.  As a Competition Angler, I get asked for my opinion on all facets of fly angling, and I’m always happy to share my thoughts.  Tungsten beads comes up quite frequently, and in the past I’ve shared my opinion based on empirical data, but never have I backed this empirical data up with hard cold facts.
