From high mountain lakes to spring creeks or tail waters, we have a recipe and a strategy that might change your whole perspective of DRY FLY fishing forever! Our mission is "To provide the finest dry flies and superb dry fly fishing techniques to anglers at all levels of expertise."

River Reports or Fishing Report Blog?
You may have noticed now that we have two areas for fishing information. Our in-depth reporting on the day's fishing with pictures is still in the Fishing Report Blog. The second area, River Reports, indicates the river fished, conditions, and flies used. There are no photos or other text. If you have enjoyed reading our blogs, we encourage you to subscribe today!

Thanks Nate I made some notes on quite a few things I need to change. My goal is to increase my dry fly catch by 10% of the fish you post in your blogs! BW
Thanks for the excellent class Saturday. I learned a bunch. Things that I was doing wrong and things that I need to do in the future.  Your expertise and great knowledge has helped me a lot. Thanks again. GW
For all of you who have not attended Nate's Dry Fly Academy at the recent fly fishing shows, you missed his best presentation ever. DC
