You put on your favorite lucky fly and you are the only guy on the lake catching fish after fish. You go home feeling like a legend. Then the next day, and the day after that, and the day after that you can’t catch a fish if your life depended on it. For whatever reason, your lucky fly isn’t working and neither is anything in your box.

How awesome would it be if regardless of the situation you had all of the knowledge to catch fish even when the fish weren’t biting? Even better, how awesome would it be if your fishing buddies were fly fishing legends, Hook And Vice Ambassador Brian Chan and his good buddy Phil Rowley?

If you don’t know who Brian Chan and Phil Rowley are,

you have likely been living way out in the wilderness, a thousand miles away from television or internet because these guys are actual living legends. We are fortunate enough to have Brian Chan on the Hook And Vice team ( and spending a day on the water with Brian is a real eye-opener for even the most hardcore fly fishermen.


Here is what Brian Chan told me about his new Stillwater Fly Fishing App.

“It’s been a bit of a roller coaster ride for Phil (Rowley) and I, the learning curve has been interesting and we are not sure what we have got ourselves into!  So far, the app has been downloaded in 14 different countries which is interesting.
Our app went live a couple weeks ago and is now available through both Google Play ( and iTunes ( 
Our app is full of video tips and is free to download.  There are a number of free tips in each chapter, over 30 in total, while other tips are subscription based. At a monthly subscription fee that is less than the cost of a fancy coffee, you are provided with access to over 75 video tips.  

Quarterly and annual subscriptions are also available.  Our commitment is to provide ongoing additional tips through monthly uploads. Currently, we have close to 200 tips that we will be adding to the app.
What makes this app unique is that once the tips have been downloaded to your smartphone they are always accessible, regardless if you have a wi-fi connection or not.  As a result, they can use the app when they are on the water to help, as though Phil and I were sitting beside them.”
