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 Winter funk. Fishing in the Winter can be tough for a lot of different reasons, so its great to get through another Winter. When you locate a school of shad catching can be nonstop. Most times if you are doing everything right its every other cast.
