Summer Smallmouth Bass

Anyone that knows me knows that my favorite fish on the fly rod are smallmouth bass.  I have had a love affair with these brown football shaped eating machines since I was old enough to cast a line.  I can still remember one I lost fishing with my farther from the bank when I was [...]

My Favorite Kind of Tail

After battling the wind the past few days I finally hooked into my favorite saltwater fish.  Its been tough down here in OIB fishing the marsh.  I have had more tough days trying to catch redfish than good days.  I'm content if this is last one I see this year, grateful I didn't get skunked. [...]

Enjoying my week off with the family down at Ocean Isle Beach, NC.  I always look forward to our annual trip down to the salt.  I was fortunate enough to get invited to fish the marsh with a couple great clients of mine that own a flats boat.  Jordan and Charles are two great guys [...]
