Leaf Relief

Who’s catching more leaves than fish lips?  Of course, it’s all of us! Dealing with leaves is just part of the game at this time of year.  We do have a few tips that might help you rake in fewer leaves on your next fly casts. Check out our column in last  October’s Angler Magazine. Flip to page Atlanta -10.


And take solace in this fact: those annoying leaves are an investment in your future success. How? They’re the food source for many aquatic insects, so leaves are the foundation for your spring bug hatches and your well-fed, wild trout.  Maybe that fact will give you a little more patience while you’re unhooking poplar leaf #100 from your woolly bugger today!


Good luck from our UO gang. May you find some leaf relief this fall!
