I had two great anglers in the boat today. Jordan and Charles joined me on the James River for there first musky on the fly trip.

A friend and I got out yesterday for a few hours on the James river. It was cold, in fact I under dressed and was to the point of shivering towards the end. We had one follow to the boat shortly after we started then a cast to a mid river tree yielded a musky [...]
My good client Kenny caught this giant rainbow trout yesterday at the public section of Beaver Creek. The rainbow measured out at 29.5 inches with a 17 inch girth. A fish of a lifetime anywhere in the world. Most folks travel to Alaska for a rainbow that size. Great to see a fish like this [...]
