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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Fish Filled Week

With no guided trips scheduled this past week and no pressing honey do's I went fishing everyday.  When you have air temps in the upper 50's and low 60's in January, you got to take advantage.  With most of my fishing buddies having normal jobs I spent the week alone on the water except one. [...]

Have I Made 10,000 Casts Yet?

This week I did my first few musky guided trips of the Fall/Winter season.  Started out this past Wednesday with a couple great guys, one from PA and the other a fishing guide in CO.  Weather was on the warm side this week, in fact I believe we may have broke some records.  I wasn't [...]
