One Extreme to the Next

Spring Shad

Shad have arrived at Weldon, NC on the Roanoke River.  Went down Monday to welcome Spring with a bent fly rod.  Shad has always been a annual trip for me and a couple buddies.  If you have never fished for shad on the fly rod before its a awesome way to get rid of that [...]
