Q: Why did the fly fisherman

go to area 51?
A: He needed some extra-terrestrials.

Whatever your appetite in trout fishing there is something for you at Westlow, from specimen hunting to purist fly fishing.

18 acres of high quality gin clear water giving a stable environment with plentiful fly life producing hard fighting fish.

Trout Hand

"There’s always a hot new fly. Precious few of these patterns are genuine breakthroughs destined to last for a hundred years, but more often they’re idle comments on existing traditions, explorations of half-baked theories, attempts to use new and interesting materials, to impress other tiers, or excuses to rename old patterns. The results are often pointless fads like the craze in some pretentious restaurants of plopping fried quail eggs on everything or calling sandwiches “paninis.”"
~John Gierach





"A Master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both."
~Francois Auguste Rene Chateaubriand
