Hot Smallies

Whew dog its been a hot one this July.  Humidity some days reminded me of the Amazon.  Unfortunately I will not be going to Brazil this year.  All trips have been pushed to 2021.  I had a hosted trip scheduled this Fall as well for Belize but with so much uncertainty I have pushed that [...]

Feeling Like Summer

Finally its warming up, last month was the coolest May I have ever seen.  It was also a wet month and the rivers stayed high for a couple weeks.  We now have great river levels and clear water.  I ran one more trout trip to the Jackson River.  We had higher flows so streamer fishing [...]

Hate To See Them Leave

I have returned home after a awesome two weeks of guiding two charters a day in Weldon, NC.  The first week of May the river was very high at 20,000 cfs.  Even with the high conditions the bite was great the whole week.  Lost more flies than I can caught having my anglers throwing up [...]

Another Wet One

Does anyone remember when we had normal weather?  The past five years seems to be storm after storm in the Spring.  Its really messing me up!  I'm always excited for April because the striped bass start making their way up river to spawn.  The problem is the rain is all or nothing it seems and [...]

Trouts and Stripes

Well its been business as usual for me except for less trips than normal in April.  I appreciate everyone that has kept me on the water during these hard times.  Fishing has been good with even better weather until the other day.  Thats right, we got the dreaded deluge Sunday and Monday.  I think around [...]

Onward to March

Finally, seven days away from Daylight Savings Time and 20 days from the official start of Spring.  If you can't tell, I'm excited.  I'll be finishing up with the toughest Winter I have had chasing musky with a fly rod with clients in the next two weeks.  Don't get me wrong I enjoy the hunt [...]

Rained Out

Its been a wet mess the past week.  I have had to cancel and reschedule musky trips this past week and weekend.  Waters are starting to recede, in fact we have perfect streamer fishing conditions for trout on the Jackson or Smith rivers this coming week.  Musky waters should be back a good fishing level [...]
