About the site & host: I'm Chad, and welcome to Iowa Fly Fisher. I was keeping a fishing journal in a paper notebook, and it occurred to me that it would be both easier for me and more helpful to others if I kept that journal here as a blog. Please join the site, and use the forum to swap reports with each other. Or go to either the Blog or Forum and type something in the Search box to find the information you want.
This site is about one thing: Iowa fly fishers helping each other have more successful fly fishing experiences close to home. As one of the site members has eloquently stated, here we approach the website concept from the "tangible and rewarding direction of friendship, mutual interest and shared concern."
I love fly fishing for warmwater species, such as largemouth & smallmouth bass, white bass & wipers, sunfish and carp. Of course, the beauty of trout and their environs touches me at a deep level. Here you'll find postings from passionate people who, with fly rod in hand, pursue virtually anything that swims in Iowa.
