Imagine Fishing Untouched Water…

In this episode Fly Fusion Magazine editor, Derek Bird, along with associate editor, Jim McLennan, explore sections of British Columbia’s Cariboo River in their Water Master rafts. Though the river is a high volume stream, there are sections where rock outcrops provide a break in the flow, creating a trout sanctuary. Because of the fast flowing nature of the river, the wild rainbows are strong and readily take nymphs and dries. Subscribe to Fly Fusion Magazine and follow us on Instagram!

Imagine Casting Flies Through a Region Lost in Time…

As the Quesnel River runs through the Cariboo region of British Columbia, it’s comparable to Jekyll and Hyde. The river that leaves the lake is slow and meandering – it’s a forgiving stream. If a fly angler misplaces a fly while casting from the drift boat, there’s time to pick up and hit the water again. After a few miles, the river transforms into a powerful and erosive agent moving quickly through the sparsely inhabited region. In this episode Fly Fusion Magazine Editor, Derek Bird along with Associate Editor Jim McLennan, have to adjust their angling tactics in order to successfully fool the strong resident rainbows. Subscribe to Fly Fusion Magazine and follow us on Instagram!

Imagine Drifting Away from Civilization

The Blackwater River in British Columbia’s Cariboo region features a unique strain of rainbow famous for their aggressive feeding behavior. In this episode Fly Fusion Magazine editor, Derek Bird along with field editor April Vokey, travel deep into the Cariboo backcountry in hopes they’ll be successful in presenting dries to eager trout. Subscribe to Fly Fusion Magazine and follow us on Instagram!

Imagine Catching Unimaginable Trout…

In this episode Fly Fusion Magazine Editor, Derek Bird along with Associate Editor Jim McLennan fish the creek and river mouths that run into one of North America’s largest fjord lakes. The sockeye cycle draws them there, but they’re not fishing for the salmon that have traveled over 500 miles to spawn in the glacial streams feeding the lake. They’re there to take advantage of the wild rainbow trout that rely on the spawning salmon as a food source. Subscribe to Fly Fusion Magazine and follow us on Instagram!

Imagine Always Discovering What’s Around the Next Bend

In this episode Fly Fusion Magazine Editor, Derek Bird along with Associate Editor Jim McLennan, explore one of British Columbia’s gems, the Horsefly River. It’s got all the right ingredients to earn this status: deep runs, perfect riffles, logjams – and fish. The stream draws large, hard fighting rainbows from Quesnel Lake at specific times of the year. On this autumn float trip, Jim and Derek find some of these rainbows and also a few other surprises in some of the deeper water. Subscribe to Fly Fusion Magazine and follow us on Instagram!

 

Imagine the Best Trout Stream Ever…

Fly Fusion TV and Scientific Anglers teamed up to produce six short films based on their popular television series. In the first episode, aptly titled Eden, cohosts Jim McLennan and Derek Bird explore a remote river deep in the Cariboo Mountains  where they catch large rainbows and bull trout and where the only other anglers on the stream are the grizzly bears.
