Over and Done

Yesterday I made the trek back to the Chesapeake Marine Training Institute in Hayes, VA.  With a little over  three hour ride I had a lot to think about.  My thoughts were wether I would pass my test this time and what was my plan if I didn't.  I felt like I was ready but my nerves [...]

My Favorite Kind of Tail

After battling the wind the past few days I finally hooked into my favorite saltwater fish.  Its been tough down here in OIB fishing the marsh.  I have had more tough days trying to catch redfish than good days.  I'm content if this is last one I see this year, grateful I didn't get skunked. [...]

Tenkara and kids
