Ready for a Change

Nothing much has changed here far as the weather.  The typical pattern has been substantial rain each week towards the weekend.  By the time the rivers get back in shape another system moves in.  Hasn't slowed me down on trout fishing though.  I have had to reschedule some due to high water on the Jackson [...]

Rain, Rain, Go Away

This Spring as proven to be exact replica of last years Spring.  Dry April then May brought heavy rains.  I got out one more time after the stripers on the Staunton River at Brookneal, VA.  I figured it was done after the last big rain but there was fish still around.  Water was still very [...]

Before The Blowout

The rains have came and instead of guiding everyday this week I have been cancelling and rescheduling trips.  My biggest competition is Mother Nature and she always wins.  We do need the rain though, it has been dry and unseasonably warm for April.  Everything has been early this year.  Fish spawns like the smallmouth bass [...]

Busy, Busy, Busy

I have flat out been rolling.  I apologize for the lack of posting but when you are guiding almost everyday spare time becomes nonexistent.  I can't complain though, I love what I do and I enjoy staying busy.  The trout fishing has been great most trips. Caddis have been hatching on streams and rivers so [...]

When the Water Rises

Thankfully we have started to receive some much needed rain.  The forecast shows we have more to come in the future.  This is great news because I have never seen a Spring with such low water due to the dry Winter we had.  When the water rises is one of my favorite times to be [...]

Fly Flinging into Spring

Spring is finally here!  We were teased in February with beautiful weather, then March arrived and brought the cold back.  Extended forecast for central Virginia looks like Spring is here to stay awhile.  Spring brings a lot of options to the fly fisherman in Virginia.  One of the most exciting fisheries getting ready to start [...]

Spring is almost here!

Just finished up the Winter muskie fishing and looking forward to focusing on fish that want to eat.  The Fall/Winter season was a rough one.  Crazy weather and more pressure on these fish than I have ever seen before.  Its never easy to catch one but its definitely gotten harder.  The past six guided trips [...]

What Season is it?

I thought it was Winter still, but this past weekends air temps were in the 60's one day and high 70's the following.  The weather has been nutsy coo coo no doubt, but not complaining.  Hopefully the warmer than normal temperatures hold out all the way through March.  Wouldn't hurt my feelings if I didn't [...]

Winter FlyFishing

Winter weather returned this past week after dumping some substantial rain.  Cold air temps had returned and it brought its friend windchill.  Sidelined most of the week due to high water flows on all of Virginia's rivers, I turned to the fly tying vise for comfort.  All though the time at the vise was good [...]
