These Are The 10 Best Instagram Fly Fishing Pictures from 2017

Updated: Aug 1

Narrowing it down to the top 10 wasn’t easy, but the stats don’t lie. 

As a business account on Instagram, we have access to whole bunch of stats showing us all kinds of information about our followers. As fate would have it, we can also see what our most views for our Instagram pictures of the year are as well. Recently, we were a little bored on a Saturday and started playing around with this feature and found it all to be pretty cool. So, why not share it?

Here they are for your viewing pleasure; the top 10 Instagram pictures posted on Walton Rod’s account for 2017.

#10. Sidney Renee with one of the first fish ever caught on the not-yet-released Sully fly rod.

#7. Jesse Males with a Tico trout. You don’t see that too often. 


Capt. Jesse Males down in #costarica got into a handful of #ticotrout using his Walton N-7. This is our 7ft, Native series rod that is built for when casting conditions are tough.

#6. Seth Nueman with a monster white fish. 


Holy whitefish! Even though the IGFA ended length records for this species, we are going to call it a record anyways…especially on the Sully.

Well, how about that? It appears our top 10 is dominated by high caliber fly fishing women. That’s pretty cool to see to be honest. These posts were sorted based on overall impressions and likes and once everything was sorted, they just fell into place.

Here’s to a great 2018!
