The Groundhog was Right

Well Punxsutawney Phil wasn't joking when he didn't see his shadow.  The past two weeks has felt like March not April.  Fished in the snow two days last week.  It finally seems like Spring has finally sprung and plans to stick around this time.  Temps in the 70's and 80's the past few days. The [...]

March Browns

Spring is finally here even though it has felt like January the past two weeks.  A couple snowstorms and cold temps have kept the water temps cold.  Today reached 74 degrees so I'm hoping the temps below 50 are done.  Looking forward to green grass, leaves, and flowers from here on out. Trout fishing has [...]

One to Remember

In the world of musky fishing, musky hold all the cards.  They decide who is going to be a hero or a zero. Some clients catch one on their first try, others grind it out till it happens and I believe a lot just give it up.  Musky fly fishing is not for everyone and [...]

Pre Spawn Bite

Virginia went from drought to flood in a snap.  Rain from earlier this month really helped the remaining pre spawn bite for musky.  With flows higher and water clarity being green, musky do not have as much time to think about wether to eat or not.  Over the past five guided trips we have had [...]

Deep Freeze 2018

Happy New Year!  2017 was a great year for fishing and I thank everyone for keeping my boat floating.  The new year was brought in with cold temps.  Yesterday morning was 5 degrees and the daytime high was 25.  It looks like we have about 5 more days of temps below freezing.  The streams and [...]

Turneffe Flats Lodge 2017

Fresh off the plane from Belize and I stepped into 30 degree temps and snow.  Quite the welcoming home I would say.  Regardless how the weather is here, it was wonderful on the Turneffe Atoll last week.  My second trip back to Turneffe Flats Lodge did not disappoint.  Warm temps and eager fish awaited my [...]

Time to Down Size

Its that time of year to start downsizing your fly.  The cold nights and mornings have brought down the water temps below 50 degrees.  On rivers I would normally throw a 12-16 hook I'm now fishing 16-20 to get the bites.  Morning fishing has been slow with the afternoon bringing on feeding and the bugs.
