After a week of studying for my final captains license test and being indoors all week I needed a break.  With a lot of Virginia rivers having ice and ice flow the choices of places to fish are slim.  Snow covering boat ramps have also been a problem.  With temps near 40 degrees yesterday the [...]

A Big Change

Boy did the weather change the past couple days.  Friday's weather wasn't bad with a high near 60 degrees, then a low pressure front pushed in from the north.  Saturday and Sunday was a bit different from last week.  High winds, a little rain, and cold temps had arrived and I was bit crabby about [...]

Fall Musky

My past couple musky on the fly guided trips have been exciting but with no grip and grins to show.  We have seen a ton of fish the past two trips.  One trip had over 20 musky follow in and two fish eat the fly but lost after fighting them to the boat. It sure [...]
