Bull River Hike, August
In this episode of Fishing With Ladin, Ladin Langeman and trusty co-host Steve Ronholt head for stunning British Columbia, casting dry flies for big Bull River Cutthroat. A tributary of the famous Kootenay, the Bull River is home to not only beautiful Trout, but postcard worthy Canadian wilderness. After some serious bush-wackin’, the duo tie on big, terrestrial dry flies, which always make for explosive takes. Despite great success, Ladin decides to change the approach for something a little smaller, which results in some unexpected huge bull river Cutty’s. Clear blue water, mountain backdrops and hungry wild trout, this is fly fishing at its best.
In this episode of Fishing With Ladin, host Ladin Langeman and Steve Ronholt cap off an interesting fishing trip with some nymphing for big Brown Trout on Montana’s Beaver River. It’s a cold and windy May in Montana and the previous days fishing have proven difficult. Nevertheless, friend and local expert Larry Hardie is on hand to put our hosts onto some hungry Browns. The Beaver isn’t a typical fly stream. The deep runs and boulders call for a different technique, so the boys run heavy nymphs beneath weights and indicators over the deep holes. The technique, known as euro-nymphing, is less popular in the states, but as the group soon prove, it’s deadly effective in these deep currents. Despite regular interruptions from nuisance whitefish, Larry eventually kicks off the session with the trophy Trout they’ve travelled all this way to catch.
Ladin Langeman and Steve Ronholt return to British Columbia in October in this episode of Fishing With Ladin, in search of pristine Canadian Cutthroat Trout on the Elk River in British Columbia. Steve and Ladin are greeted with a heavy rise of fish when they arrive to the first pool, so they match the hatch and try for fish on the top. The tiny imitation patterns make for a difficult hook-up, but after some frustrating losses the fish eventually make it to the bank. Steve takes to time to cover the intricacies of his ultralight setup needed to catch these clear water fish, and soon after the camera catches one of the best monster Cutthroat takes you’ll ever see.

After starting with a more natural approach, Steve decides to add a streamer to the team of flies to target the real monsters. As the day progresses, the boys quickly discover that the fish in Bozeman, Montana are far bigger than they once thought.
In this episode of Fishing With Ladin, host Ladin Langeman and Steve Ronholt are fishing Big Wood River in Idaho, trying their luck on the fly for cold water Rainbow Trout. It’s March, which means the snow is still on the ground this far north in Sun Valley, but when it comes to Rainbow’s that’s not a problem. Top catcher Larry Hardie is once again on hand, and he suggests a deep-water approach. The team trot weighted nymphs beneath indicators along the far side structure, which quickly proves a deadly method. With fat winter Trout coming thick and fast to the bank, it’s no wonder our hosts would brave the cold to fish the Big Wood.

Casting dry flies into the deep pockets, Ladin and Steve’s catches just get bigger and bigger, but as they soon discover, they’re not the only ones in the river trying to catch…
