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 [...]

One Fishy Weekend

I had to reschedule Andy's trip two different times this winter due to high water and weather.  We had originally planned to fish for muskie for two days, but with the flows still higher than I like I suggested we do a day after brown trout with streamers.  Jackson River near Covington, VA fished great [...]

Hard Earned Cash

The muskie biologist for the VA Dept. of Game and Inland Fisheries called me up earlier this week to see if I wanted to join them in shocking for musky this year.  He informed me he has been tagging fish with a numbered yellow tag near the dorsal fin.  These tags need to be removed [...]

It has been some tough fishing this Fall for musky.  I believe we are having the wettest Fall in history, I know I have never seen so much rain this time of year.  Rivers are generally low and clear in the Fall but all this rain has helped the trout streams for sure, there is plenty [...]

Tis the Season

What I consider musky season has begun.  Leaves are changing and water temps are cooler.  After a two week break from the river because of  rain and high flows a friend and I made it out to start off Fall right.  Smallmouth bass were very active chasing minnows all over the river and I was [...]

Virginia has it all

Its been a great couple of weeks fishing with clients.  Poppers and sliders continue to put some big smallmouth bass in the net.  I have had my hands on the oars for more days than I can count and the only time I have been touching the fly rod is when I hand it to a [...]
