Smallmouth Time

My favorite time of year in Virginia is here.  The official first day of Summer is still a couple weeks away but the first of June is Summer to me.  Summer means 6 weight rods, floating lines, floating flies, and hungry smallmouth bass.  Most folks that know me know that smallmouth bass are my favorite [...]

Ready for a Change

Nothing much has changed here far as the weather.  The typical pattern has been substantial rain each week towards the weekend.  By the time the rivers get back in shape another system moves in.  Hasn't slowed me down on trout fishing though.  I have had to reschedule some due to high water on the Jackson [...]

Rain, Rain, Go Away

This Spring as proven to be exact replica of last years Spring.  Dry April then May brought heavy rains.  I got out one more time after the stripers on the Staunton River at Brookneal, VA.  I figured it was done after the last big rain but there was fish still around.  Water was still very [...]

Busy, Busy, Busy

I have flat out been rolling.  I apologize for the lack of posting but when you are guiding almost everyday spare time becomes nonexistent.  I can't complain though, I love what I do and I enjoy staying busy.  The trout fishing has been great most trips. Caddis have been hatching on streams and rivers so [...]

When the Water Rises

Thankfully we have started to receive some much needed rain.  The forecast shows we have more to come in the future.  This is great news because I have never seen a Spring with such low water due to the dry Winter we had.  When the water rises is one of my favorite times to be [...]

Fly Flinging into Spring

Spring is finally here!  We were teased in February with beautiful weather, then March arrived and brought the cold back.  Extended forecast for central Virginia looks like Spring is here to stay awhile.  Spring brings a lot of options to the fly fisherman in Virginia.  One of the most exciting fisheries getting ready to start [...]

Spring is almost here!

Just finished up the Winter muskie fishing and looking forward to focusing on fish that want to eat.  The Fall/Winter season was a rough one.  Crazy weather and more pressure on these fish than I have ever seen before.  Its never easy to catch one but its definitely gotten harder.  The past six guided trips [...]

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 [...]

Winter FlyFishing

Winter weather returned this past week after dumping some substantial rain.  Cold air temps had returned and it brought its friend windchill.  Sidelined most of the week due to high water flows on all of Virginia's rivers, I turned to the fly tying vise for comfort.  All though the time at the vise was good [...]

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. [...]
