Welcome

We are a group of avid fisherman who enjoy fishing and fishing related things. We started as the City of Allen Fishing Field Team and had a blog that has since been archived - CityOfAllenFishing.Blogspot.com, and replaced by our current blog - StockerTroutFishing.com.

Over the years, the name has been shortened from COAF Field Team to Field Team and our members have shrunk. We started with five members, shrunk to one, and then added a four-legged member - Charlie the #maltesepuppy!

It is our hope to keep bringing fishing news and fishing things of interest to our Readers and YouTube Viewers. Thank you for stopping by and do check back at all our venues - YouTube, Blog, and this website for the latest happenings from the Team!

Till then, "Good Luck and Good Fishing"!

PS: The sections below provide fishing news, tips, suggestions, and articles that offer a wealth of information to Readers interested in fishing!

  • Sunday Classic / Limit False Casting to Improve Your Casting Stroke November 18, 2018
    When we first start out fly fishing and we're still learning the mechanics of the casting stroke, it's very common for many of us to make excessive false casts in between our presentations. For some of us, excessive false casting is an excuse to impart quality control during our fly casting, for others, we justify […]

    Lyla Blue Guymon is a normal seven year-old…with a magazine cover. Matt and Summer Guymon have had their daughter Lyla on the water, literarily since before she was born. Every parent loves to see their kid catch fish, but not all get to see them catch trophy brown trout. Fewer more see the moment preserved […]

    Simms Freestone Waders offer quality, fit and performance at a great price. The Simms Freestone waders are a great choice for anglers who want Simms performance at $279. I have a pair that I travel with and I love them. While they may not be as bombproof as my G4Zs, they are lighter and easy […]

  • We Have To Go… November 20, 2017
    It was a Rubik’s cube of calendars; a six-sided complex puzzle and I’d become a major part of the scramble. Matt Jennings from Fishing BC was trying to organize a fishing trip between me, Katy Watson of Northern Outback Adventures, photographer Jeremy Koreski, videographer Brandon Kelly, a helicopter pilot and, of course, the fish themselves.

  • Queens of the Desert November 1, 2017
    I don’t know why I was so surprised to hear Dubai has good fishing. For years I assumed the city to be a major dustbowl of wealth, high-rises, restrictions, and layovers — a pretty ignorant depiction coming from a girl who’d only ever experienced Dubai’s international airport (which is, admittedly, rather impressive). I’d flown through […]
  • Exmouth on the Fly July 7, 2017
    It was four years, one marriage, a shit-ton of paperwork, and an unhealthy amount of saltwater fishing earlier when I replaced winter steelhead with marlin; white snow soon to be forgotten by pale yellow sand. Splitting my life between both countries — a “summer chaser” as they called me — I had the best of […]

    I mean really, why wait? Once you decide to put something on sale, do it. Don't let some poor guy buy a rod for full price after you've already decided to put it on sale. Right? I just decided to put the Daiwa Kiyose 43M on sale for Black Friday. 25% off, bringing the price […]

    Saturday was a very interesting day. I started the day fishing my Daiwa Enshou LL36SF, which I don't fish nearly often enough. For a little while now I have been experimenting with nylon lines, and I thought that perhaps the slow, full flex rod would cast them well. I also started with a line that […]
