You may have seen Steven's incredible images posted on Instagram and Facebook as @finripplemedia. Timed to perfection, his astounding images of leaping trout freeze time and clearly demonstrate to us that yes, trout do indeed track insects on the wing and take them in flight. Steven has been bending a couple of Epic fly rods...
A semi-sunk fly projects more visible stimulus than a high and dry pattern, so it makes a lot of sense to use a design that penetrates the surface film as a ‘searching pattern’, rather than the high-riding flies usually recommended for this job like the Royal Wulff, Humpy or Elk Hair Caddis. For me, the old dry hackle jobs have been moved well down the bench, even for fast broken water.
For his latest movie-project Swiftfly fishing ambassador Peter Corzilius hiked out into the wilderness of Swedish Lappland searching for arctic char, a special species that lives in big and clear mountain lakes.
I had already fallen in love with this art by then. I wanted to be a flyfisher. I saved every single pocket money towards the kit. It took me more than one year to save 7000Yen($NZ92.00).

My name is Pat Cohen. I live in upstate New York where there is an abundance of warm water streams, lakes, and farm ponds to fish; although most anything with gills is fair game.
I was always a terrible fisherman with spin and casting gear, but I began fly fishing in 2008 and since then I have caught more fish than I can count. I have been tying flies since January of 2009. Fly fishing and tying have become an essential part of my life. Since 2012 I have been a full time commercial fly tyer and designer.
