On March 11, join the Troutbitten crew from 5:00 to 8:00 pm at New Trail Brewing Company in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

We’re proud to announce a collaboration we’ve been working on for a while. This is a fly tying event and general hangout with the guys from the Troutbitten Podcast. Included in your ticket price is the New Trail X Troutbitten Collaboration T-shirt ahead of its public release. And your first beer is on the house at New Trail.

Here’s the Plan

Bring your fly tying vise, tools and some thread spools.  I (Dom) will tie the Half Pint Streamer and the Bread-n-Butter nymph. We’ll walk through the steps and the specifics of each pattern together, as you tie along and watch on the big screen. Hooks, materials and Troutbitten stickers are included. Prizes will be drawn throughout the event.

If you aren’t a fly tyer, you’re more than welcome to attend without fly tying tools in hand.

More than anything, we’re all looking forward to meeting you, putting faces to names and talking shop. So, after the tying session, let’s share a beer and swap fishing stories.

We’ll see you at the brewery. (Photo by Bill Dell)

Hi. I’m a father of two young boys, a husband, author, fly fishing guide and a musician. I fish for wild brown trout in the cool limestone waters of Central Pennsylvania year round. This is my home, and I love it. Friends. Family. And the river.

PODCAST: Critical Nymphing Concepts #6 — Line On the Water — S10, Ep6

This episode is about tension and slack. It’s about how we manage fly lines and leaders on the water while nymphing. My friend, Austin Dando, joins me to walk through the tight line advantage of keeping line off the water and what happens when we give that up. Fishing greater distances often requires laying line on the water, and how we manage that line, how we plan for it, makes all the difference between a great drift and a poor one . . .

One-On-One Virtual Skills Sessions are Here

After months of work and preparation, I’m pleased to announce the launch of Troutbitten One-On-One Virtual Skills Sessions. This latest arm of the Troutbitten Project allows for greater connection with more anglers, readers, listeners and viewers than ever before.

These one-on-one skills sessions are held in our Troutbitten online studio, where we record the Troutbitten Podcast. Conversations are tailored to fit your interests, your questions and curiosities. These sessions are recorded (for your use only), and afterward, you’ll receive a video of our meeting, along with notes and links to more Troutbitten resources to help you keep learning.

PODCAST: Critical Nymphing Concepts #5 — Weight: The Fundamental Factor — S10, Ep5

Once you leave the water’s surface, weight is necessary for the presentation. Here’s what weights to choose, for nymphing, why and when. You can’t avoid it. Weight is the fundamental factor. Meaning, it’s probably more important than the fly itself. More weight or less is more consequential than what dubbing, feather or ribbing is wound around the hook shank.

We use all types of weight, and there are good reasons for all of these: tungsten beads, split shot and drop shot . . .

STREAMSIDE: MidCurrent Features 1 Million Troutbitten Podcast Downloads (an Interview with Dom)

A few weeks ago, the Troutbitten Podcast crossed the 1 Million downloads milestone. Spencer Durrant, the news editor for Midcurrent and host of the Unhooked Podcast, got in touch to ask if I’d answer a few questions for the occasion.

The Midcurrent publication is part of the glue that binds this industry together, so I was happy to oblige. Answering these questions also got me thinking about where this Troutbitten Project has been and where it’s going.

So as Troutbitten enters the year of its tenth anniversary, here’s a look into one of our favorite branches of this Troutbitten media company and how it became so important to the Troutbitten community . . .

  1. Hey guys, I would love to attend this but am out west in Utah and won’t be able to make it. I’m really hoping you’ll record and share on your YouTube channel or on the Podcast. Anyway, thanks for all the excellent content you put out!

    • Brett,

      I am with you, down in southwestern VA. I hope to be able to see some footage from the event and wish I could be there. Thankful that I have a date on the calendar this summer to fish with Dom to keep me going.

  3. Even though I don’t tie flies it sounds like a cool event. I’ve been a fan of New Trail for years and was thinking of starting to tie. The t shirt alone is worth the trip. Looking forward to it.
