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. [...]

New Year, New Website

I hope everyone is having a great 2017 so far!  My new year is going well.  If you are reading this blog entry then you obviously notice the new website.  After five years I figured it was time for a change or at least a face lift.  Big thanks to my friend Rick for suggesting [...]

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 [...]

See Ya Next Year Bass

Fall is a wonderful time of year but also a bit depressing for me.  Yes the air temperature is comfortable and the leaves changing colors are nice to look at.  But the down side to Fall other than raking and blowing leaves till January, is the smallmouth bass season has come to a close for [...]

Tour De Colorado Rivers

Just got back from a great trip to Colorado where guiding all started for me.  Took some clients of mine out with me to fish some of the best rivers in the state.  We hired my good friend Pat Dorsey, who gave me my first job as a guide many years ago.  It was awesome [...]

Chainsaws, Trout, and Bass

I have always said Mother Nature is my biggest competition.  She decides if the river will be good enough for my trips to be successful.  She can also make the river more dangerous than it already is.  After the flood waters came down over a week ago on the Jackson river near Covington, VA,  a [...]

Pleasant Surprise

Yesterdays trip brought a unexpected surprise for my client Brian.  The periodic cicada emergence has been slow with cooler than normal air temps.  But this week we received air temps well into the 80's.  The northern part of Allegheny county is one of the few areas in Virginia that will have a emergence.  Yesterday I [...]

Drought Buster

It has been a interesting May to say the least.  Another 1-2 inches of rain is coming today to throw a wrench in my plans for the upcoming week with clients.  Maybe this one will miss us.  My striped bass season at Weldon, NC on the Roanoke river ended before it had a chance to [...]
