This is a little teaser of some of the fish we got into in the fall of 2009 while filming during the migratory trout and salmon runs in the Great Lakes Tributaries. Episode two of the second season of Bingo Bango Fly Fishing is set to be released at the end of February, 2010.
In the fall of 2009, the Bingo Bango fly fishing crew were out on a number of streams stalking migratory trout and salmon in tributaries of the Great Lakes. This is a short video of one of those days we were out. This video takes place on Bronte Creek, just outside of Oakville in the GTA.
The Nottawasaga river, or the Notty as its friends call it, is a massive river that flows north into Nottawasaga Bay. The river is home to an outstanding run of steelhead, as well as salmon species in addition to its warm water fish population.
This is an extremely effective and neat way to nymph! Otherwise known as shortline nymphing, heavy nymphs and long rods are a bonus in most cases. Below the waters surface is a world like no other. Minnows, leeches and other creatures lurk about, hoping they are not being watched by a big trout. What we are concerned with here however is not a minnow or a leech, but larvae, pupae and nymphs. Streams abound with these pre-flight creatures year round, so its not all that surprising that the diet of a trout consists of some 70-80% nymphs taken below the surface. With different species, different water conditions and water quality, it can seem quite daunting at first to look below
Fishing with dry flies can be quite intimidating for the beginner. It takes years to perfectly master dry fly fishing and to accomplish what you set out to do. Here we’ll look at three dry fly fly fishing techniques to employ out on the river. Perhaps one of the most identifying aspects of fly fishing is a trout taking a fly from the surface of a stream. With that said, one of the most daunting tasks that a fly fisher will have to accomplish when embarking on the mission of trout tempting is presenting a dry fly properly. Presentation has much to do with how you place the fly where you intend to put it, but has much more to do with

The first time it was because I had picked up a piece of Maple, gnawed by beavers into the perfect shape and length for a walking stick. Having it to hand anyway I continued to use it as I walked across a freshet-full brook to get to a fishing spot. It made what would have been a mildly treacherous adventure much less risky. From then on, when walking into or out of favourite
