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 [...]

Turneffe Flats Lodge 2017

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. [...]

Slime Rockets

It has been a productive Fall on Virginia's trout water.  Waters have been very low on the majority of the mountain streams, but some recent rains have helped raise water levels.  I primarily have been sticking to the tailwater section of the Jackson River.  Flows have been consistent there because of the dam.  Flows are [...]

Jungle Love

When I answered my phone back in July from an old friend, I wasn't expecting the opportunity to fish for peacock bass in Brazil.  Ever since I was a little boy and saw peacock bass for the first time on a TV show, I have had the itch to fish for this exotic fish.  I [...]
