Blogger Spotlight – Brian Marz’s Fly Fishing Oregon

Brian Marz’s Fly Fishing Oregon Blog is this week’s Blogger Spotlight. Brian is another Oregon boy (two in a row. When I take over as Supreme Ruler of the World – I shall install some Oregon fly fishers as Overseers for the angling re-education camps. They will break people of still fishing bait without using circle hooks, and educate the masses in the arts of swinging wet flies and properly plying poppers for pond bass – not to mention carp fly flinging).

Brian’s blog is chalk full of beautiful pictures from some of our more famous, and some less famous waters here in Oregon. Brian seems to be willing to fish for any fish that will eat a fly – and he does very well at it.

His latest post (as of this writing) is about bass fishing in the Umpqua River and crabbing in Winchester Bay, which is on the south-central coast. I have crabbed in Winchester Bay myself, and I’ve got to say it’s one of the prettiest places I’ve ever crabbed – and it’s also not a bad place to troll for Chinook salmon a bit later in the year.

Other recent adventures for Brian have focused on the amazing smallmouth bass fishery on the Umpqua River, which is also noted internationally for it’s steelhead fishing. Brian and his cohorts have pulled some real hogs from the Umpqua, and they’ve done it on the fly.

Brian’s steelhead and trout fishing are also quite prominent on the blog (this is Oregon after all. Bass and carp are invasive, non-native species that are really fun to catch, but we’ve got to show some love for the cold-water fishes too, and Brian does an excellent job there.)

Along with photos and stories, Brian’s blog features video of his (and his companion’s) angling adventure. It’s a great way to feel like you’re part of the action, even when you’re sitting in the living room on a big leather Lazy Boy.

Visit Brian’s and feed your need for eye candy.
