I don’t usually spend a lot of money on equipment. Ok, I probably should correct that… I don’t spend a lot of money on any single fly fishing item. I probably buy too much in total but I haven’t splurged on any top of the line Winston rods or Tibor Reels or anything even close [...]
I’ve only been to Arkansas one time and I was very little. I’ve been seeing commercials on TV about how natural it is and all and I needed a vacation. To tell you the truth, I needed a vacation probably more than I’ve ever needed one. You see, I’m in the process of getting a [...]
And now for something completely different….
I’m honored to be next to host a @onebugisfake aka Brandon Robinson the “Free Agent Blogger” post. You can follow him on Twitter or catch him at his new site appropriately named – OneBugIsFake.com. I haven’t had a chance to properly fish with him yet [...]
Apparently people in southeastern Oklahoma are in some kind of time warp. Mullets are still in style and harvesters of 8″ trout can still be found easily there. Kids running out of their family pickup into the local McDonalds that answer to “Chigger” and “Mutt” just add to the local flavor. Oh Broken Bow, I still love you.
So I’ve never been in a drift boat before. I’ve had lots of them float by me on the Guadalupe while I envied the paying client being told exactly where to fish, when to mend, and how to hold the fish for the perfect grip and grin shot. Being ferried around to all the honey [...]
I took a vacation day today to spend some time out on the GRTU lease on the Guadalupe. Although the weather was very different than the last trip, I caught the exact same number and mix of fish: 1 nice rainbow and 1 dinky bass.
When I arrived at Site 5 around 10:15a this [...]
I needed a day off. Yes, needed. I’ve had to make some hard choices lately and now that I did, time to step into the serene world of deciding between olive or black streamer, or fish here or walk.
Thursday, Veterans Day (thank you military for protecting this beautiful country of ours), I headed [...]
Made it to Seattle today. The trip has been uneventful so far which is great. Things get more interesting starting tomorrow when we cross over in to Canada and my brother drops my father and I off at the boat dock at Grant Narrows. We’ll be spending two full days fishing at the Pitt River [...]
After a tough week at work, I needed to get out of the house and spend some time on the water. Although I don’t have much to report regarding the fishing, some people might be interested in the water level on the Pedernales. Needless to say, with multiple 100+ days in a row, the water [...]
Although I had a ton of stuff to do today at work, against my better judgement, I took off early and went out to Reimers Ranch to pick up an annual pass and see if there were any white bass that were hungry for a fly. The $10 a visit admission fee has been adding [...]
