Yvon Chouinard should need no introduction. He is a smart and passionate outdoorsman who brings deep insight to the activities he loves. I was recently sent this article from Fly Fisherman magazine. It's a fantastic read, and one that made me reflect on some of the fly box clutter that I've accumulated over the years. Maybe don't fish the same pattern for a year like Yvon did, but give a simple fly a shot sometime. At Blue Lines we're big believers in soft hackles and Kebari-style flies and we know that they work everywhere, and almost all the time. If you don't believe me, then trust Yvon. He's a man who knows.
