New Listing in Iowa! Prairie Song Farm

New Listing Coming Soon! – Prairie Song Farm, Iowa

By: Tate Jarry, Broker

If you are like me, an avid fly fisherman who often plans a seasonal trip to a destination trout fishery, I would venture to guess that Iowa is not on your short list of states to spend time wetting a line.  It certainly didn’t make my list unless we are talking about fly fishing with a 10-weight for musky. A recent visit to the northeast corner of the state and a 2-day fishing experience on the spring creeks of Prairie Song Farm have changed my opinion of the fly fishing opportunities found in the Midwest as well as my list of destination trout fisheries.

Here are a few pictures of my recent trip and depiction of the fishery located on Prairie Song Farm.

Rainbow trout caught on Coyote Creek Ranch

Waking up at 4 A.M. is only enjoyable if the woods or the river is involved. We watched the sunrise as we traveled over the Teton Pass on our way to fish Montana Live Water. We had big plans to enjoy the next two days fishing the waters of Montana for the first time. It proved to be an angler’s heaven. With turn-offs and public access to waters around every corner, we were amazed at how much passion the entire state of Montana has for fishing. » More: Montana Fly Fishing Trip

Bonefishing in the Bahamas

March 7th, 2013

This time last year, the Live Water Team was gearing up for bonefishing in the Bahamas…one can always dream we are back on the islands, right?

The MV Bonefish is an 82-foot luxury catamaran that plies the waters of the Berry Islands, Chub Cay, Moore’s Island, Red Shank, Whale Cay, Little Abaco and a host of other lightly visited cays to the north and west. If you long to fish in places where established fishing lodges are the exception rather than the rule, the comfort and exclusivity of the MV Bonefish might be the ticket. During our visit, we had the pleasure to spend time with our friends at Frontiers Travel. » More: Bonefishing in the Bahamas

Beckett and Sydney

This October day smelled of fresh pumpkins and drying leaves as young anglers Sydney Smith and Beckett Maher took to the Snake River for adventure.  The gleaming sun warmed the water, awakening the trout.  Long-time Jackson guide Scott Smith navigated the drift boat.  There were animal sightings and the intermittent cry…”Trout on!  Raise the tip.”  » More: Cruisin’ the Snake

Three days TAIL…

March 5th, 2012

Written By Captain Don Gable

Feb 28, 2012

Day 1: After spending the last three days on the water fishing Permit I think it’s safe to say the 2012 Permit season is off to a great start!

Angler Alex Maher from Jackson, Wyoming, took his spot on the bow of my boat Wednesday hoping to catch his first Permit in the Florida Keys. We set out early on the falling tide, under partly cloudy skies, wind south 5-10 miles per hour with water temps around 74 degrees. I slowly polled up to our first flat to find four or five fish tailing and working in very shallow, slick water. They were so shallow their backs were exposed and we even watched one fish swim on his side as he worked to cross a shallow bar. We worked through the slack and then rising tide for about two hours throwing at tailing fish and managed to get one solid eat that never came tight. The fish turned and ate the fly while quickly traveling down current, towards the boat making it almost impossible to get a solid hook set. “Let’s find another.” I suggested.

Alex and I continued to fish through the top of the high getting a dozen or so shots, it was now 2pm. After a brief roll over, the tide started to drop…fast! It wasn’t long until we spotted a good sized Permit slowly moving across the flat and slightly away. “Eleven o’clock, 70 feet going away…You got him?” I yelled.

“GOT HIM!” Alex said. I made another push and Alex launched his cast placing it about a foot in front of the going away fish and slightly left. The fish turned…Alex gave a long slow strip…another….and then the fish inhaled the fly! “YES!!!!”

Fifteen minutes later…Mr. Permit is in the boat.
