Seven Years Ago – I got lucky

Oh thanks Facebook Memories. I saw a pic today from seven years ago of me holding a tarpon from Belize. That fish capped of a really wild day of fishing out of El Pescador with my friend Shane from The Fly Shop in Redding. That tarpon was the final piece of my grand slam, made […]

Bahamas Regs… where things stand now at the end of 2017

I’ve been traveling, so haven’t posted more about this, but I’m sneaking a few minutes here at work to get some more news out. The Bahamas regs put into place earlier in the year are still on the books, but won’t be enforced until a thorough review can take place.  That’s the long and short […]

How to Handle Bonefish

You want your bonefish to live long and prosper after you release it? Well, here are some thoughts. You’ll notice I’m not immune from making bad decisions. I do, from time to time, but I want to be better. That’s the goal. The risk to the fish by our poor actions is not insignificant. Here’s […]

DIY Redfishing in Southern Louisiana with a crew from Alabama – Part 2

OK, Part II. This part of the story will have fewer relevant photos for two reasons. Firstly, my GoPro battery died, because that seems to be the alternative purpose of the GoPro and the second reason is we missed the shot of the hand-caught redfish. So, that story. James and I were paddling into some […]

DIY Redfishing in Southern Louisiana with a crew from Alabama – Part 1

I have been to NOLA a lot over the last 16 months or so. My average is about once a month, all for work, and the trips are packed pretty full of meetings with a quick return flight. In on Tuesday afternoon, meetings Wednesday, meetings Thursday and then the last flight out of MSY that […]

Redfish Kayak Fishing Expert – Added to the resume

I have now spent more than five hours fishing out of a kayak for redfish in Louisiana, DIY-style. This, I’m confident, makes me somewhat of an authority on the subject. In the picture below you can see me fishing Southern Louisiana with James from Alabama. Being the internet star that I am, I was quickly […]

Bahamas Regulations – Light at the end of the tunnel edition

Maybe? I mean… is there anything certain? Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd. Voltaire The BFFIA was making noise about a possible repeal of the fishing regs, because, ya know, that is possible. If you want to help with your own shovel full of sand to bury this horrible pile of […]

Irma, the Keys, This is Fly and Dr. Adams

Here’s something for you to check out if you want to know what Irma did to the Keys. A story by Dr. Aaron Adams in This is Fly about what impact Irma has on the Keys, which should give you a pretty good idea of the shape of things. ...

Bahamas Regs – FFS Edition

And it just never stops. So… Fly Fishing Chief says the sky is falling and those “special interests” are behind it. Something like that comes from this story about the possibility that the fly fishing regs put in place earlier this year could be tanked. I mean… am I the only one who thinks the guy […]

Heading Back to Caulker

Just substitute Cali for Caulker and now you have that in your head. Just booked flights for get back to Caye Caulker for another Dad/Daughter Spring Break. Last year was a really great trip and an important one for my daughter and I and I’m hoping this next year is more of the same. Here’s […]

BotB – Redfish Expert

I’m going back to NOLA, because, of course I am. This time it is a conference (anyone else going to Kidney Week???) and I have a day at the end of things to get on the water. Last year I got out there in December and managed a half day with guide Ron Ratliff, who […]

BTT auction has some pretty awesome items

I can’t make it to the BTT Symposium. Wish that was on my calendar, but, alas, life has not put that in front of me (work is firing on all cylinders at the moment). However, you and I can still browse the auction items for the symposium. It is pretty amazing. Check it out here. […]

A little round up of stuff floating around out there

First, congrats to Yellow Dog’s Jim Klug who recently landed the 2017 Izaak Walton Award given by the The American Museum of Fly Fishing. I’ve had the pleasure of fishing with Jim. He’s solid. Last year’s award winner was super-talented artist and author James Prosek. Second, hope you like that water taxi ride to Caye […]

Interview with Jako Lucas – From the Everywhere

Jako Lucas is an angler’s angler. A native of South Africa, Jako has fished and guided around the world. He wrote this interview after closing the season in Mongolia and before heading back to the Seychelles. He’s fished all over for all sorts of different species. He’s on the pro-staff of Yeti (read his interview […]

The Cruel Season

Maybe there have been years as bad as this. I haven’t been paying attention for very long, in the big scheme of things. This hurricane season seems… just cruel. Harvey was bad. Irma was horrible. Now comes Maria and you just have to hope the oceans cool down and steal the strength from anything yet […]

A bullet dodged in the Bahamas, more or less

It appears, from first reports, the overwhelming majority of Bahamian operations were spared direct damage from Hurricane Irma. Just got pretty damn lucky. Damage is still being assessed in the Florida Keys and it sure looks like lots of folks there took some major damage. Now we have to worry about Jose, and while predictions […]

Hurricane Season

First thing I do when I wake up is check the status of Irma. It looks like a bad one and it is headed for a lot of places that have touched my life. Thinking of all of you in the storm’s path. I can’t ignore that there, right now, appears to be another potential […]

First there was Harvey… and now come Irma

Man… Harvey has been a real sonofabitch. I have read by the time he’s done the storm will have dropped over 20 TRILLION gallons of water. That’s enough to raise Lake Michigan by 3 feet. The flooding is bad, and appears to be getting worse. Thoughts going out to all those in the path of […]

My leverage

I had a plan. It was a great plan. See… I have two kidneys (you probably do too). My mother-in-law needed one, just one. I was going to give my kidney up so she could get one. I was worked up as a donor, entered into a kidney swap program and was waiting for the […]

So… Sudan?

Sounds like a great place to go, right? I’m sure Sudan is on your bucket list. The Drake had a great podcast on fly fishing in Sudan. It sounds, really, pretty damn awesome. Also, there is this…
