In March/April edition of The Fisherman’s Journal you will encounter our latest article “Fly Fishing the High Country”. This article does a great job explaining what fly fishing means to us at Backwater Fly Fishing and takes you through the details of one of our favorite fishing trips of the year, the Wyoming High Country.

A link to the free digital magazine is here:


Learn all about our trip, from the backpacking gear used, to the fly rod outfits and fly line! This is a trip that depends heavily on the gear that is used in the field. Because of that, we stress the importance of spending a few extra bucks for quality items that will potentially save not just your trip, but also your life.

This edition of The Fisherman’s Journal also features the first video in our “Fly of the Month” series as we move through some of our tying videos in hopes to encourage others in their fly tying adventures! The first fly in the series is the Tarpon Toad Variant.

I’m Capt. Jesse Males, an avid fly fishing, snook snatching, kayak paddling, tarpon slaying, mountain hiking, manatee swimming fool from Central Florida. Over the years fly fishing has had a huge impact on my life and particularly on how I view the world we spend our time in. I am currently the owner and operator of as well as our online fly shop, The lifestyle that is called fly fishing has taken me to some amazing destinations and has provided me with some amazing experiences in the wild. From chasing big salty critters in the Florida Keys, to roosters in Coast Rica, to small wild trout in the Carolinas, and all the way up to the high mountain cutthroat of Wyoming; I have been blessed to experience fly fishing at its finest.
