    Sorry for the extended radio silence. The plan was to laze about (from a blogging perspective) for a couple months while the L&T and I discussed what we wanted to do when we grew up. When you’re in your 50s, that’s not a trivial question. Included in that discussion was my work, recreational writing, family responsibilities — the usual tangle of stuff you’ll find wrapped around a mid-50s working professional raising two very energetic young girls.

    Nice catch of dolphin on the Mary B III - 32 keeper dolphins It was a great day for fishing today on the Mary B III.  The dolphin were snapping in 350-400ft of water today, just a mile and a half off the Fort Lauderdale beach.  The morning trip was good, but the afternoon was even better.  We started the morning drifting on the reef, picking up a few snappers and some other assorted bottom critters (grunts, triggers, porgies).  A few boats just outside of us were catching some scattered mahi-mahi, so we decided to go give that a try.  We went out to 350ft of water and set up on a drift.

It was a helluva day at sea today with an awesome catch of kingfish, bonitos and a monster wahoo on our sportfishing charter.  The kingfish and bonitos are all over the reef, every which way we turn we’re hooking into a mulitple fish at a time.  Trolling is the best method of fishing this time of year to catch the most fish possible.  It is a technique where the boat is moving the whole time and we drag a spread of lures behind the boat to look like a school of fish trying to escape.  It allows us to cover a lot of…

    Crisp, not stiff.. Photo: Kyle Shea. We tell people all the time at our lodges, especially our female guests, that women typically make better fly casters than men do. Sorry fellas, but that’s the truth. Good casting results from a smooth application of power, not brute force and therefore, women tend to pick it up a little faster. Oddly enough however, there aren’t many fly rods on the market today specifically designed for women, other than a few models differing only by color alone. However, Mystic Outdoors has released their Sapphyre series of rods tailored to accommodate the…

    Fall fly fishing in the the region offers plenty of great opportunities. The cooler weather offers anglers some solitude of fly fishing while many are caught up with other fall activities. A little bit of preparation can be a rewarding opportunity for those who can make the time.Reproduction plays an important part of the trout lifecycle during the fall months for both brook and brown trout. Brook trout, native to the US, usually begin to spawn during late September through October. Brown trout typically start spawning in October through late November. I have seen this go later too.During the…

The conditions were tough in God's Country, as water was low and gin clear in most every place we went. Despite tough conditions, everyone was able to find trout and the fishing was much better than it had been when we had our summit in the Spring. Mid to late April is simply too early to have great fishing in the Potter/Tioga/Clinton area. My dad, Sal, and I arrived at camp around 9am on Thursday after what was possibly the…

He captures these videos from unique aerial views via multi-rotor drones that he has custom built for the rough and variable conditions in the angling backcountry.

    JRWFishing

    Although fishing for trout in the fall of the year can be a very productive endeavor, the weather can be unpredictable to say the least.  One day it's beautiful, the next it's cold and rainy with the threat of winter looming over the situation like a father over his 15 year old daughter when she shows up an hour late after her first "party".  This is exactly the situation that I find myself in today.It's cold and rainy, the type of day no one in their right mind would want to spend on the water chasing trout, however I have never claimed to be in my right mind.  I am…

    Every time that I've had the opportunity to hit the river this fall the, the rainbows have been hungry, which makes me happy and sad at the same time.  Happy because catching rainbow trout (especially ones that are over the 15 inch mark) is as enjoyable to me as any activity on this planet and sad because each morning I notice the temperatures dropping, which means that my days of productive drift fishing are numbered.  So, since I know that fall fishing will be over soon, that means that I need to hit the river as much as I can in the next four weeks or so.  Which is exactly…

    As I began my hour or so hike down the partially dry creek bed to get to this years favorite fall trout fishing spot, I couldn't help but notice that the leaves on the birch trees have not only changed color, but are also beginning to fall from the trees.  I would imagine that the three or four days of unseasonably cool weather that we had a week or so ago "triggered" the color change, but whatever it is that is causing the leaves to do their thing earlier than normal, I'm not complaining. I love to see the fall color change happen, because it triggers the real start of the fall trout…

    The title of this post is a but misleading as the trout in question would have "gotten away" no matter what seeing as how I don't kill any of the trout that I catch, but nonetheless this large rainbow released itself before I had the chance to land, admire, and release it.  In any case, as I mentioned in the last post I was having a good afternoon on the water, catching and releasing multiple rainbow trout that ranged in size from 9 to about 15 or so inches.Now I'm not sure if it was because the fishing trip was going so well or because of the fact that I'm really out of practice and…

    So, I have been fishing when I get the chance between school, clinicals, and work. It seems like the water has been turning over forever lately but the topwater bite is pretty good, at least for the spotted bass (not the stripers yet!). I was using a Zara spook in blue shad color in 70 degree water temp on the chattahoochee river trying to get the stripers to blow up on it and caught this little spotted bass! Conditions were a little windy (its fall) and air temp was in the 50s.I will keep you Informed of my fishing situation,  stay tuned!

    Ryan Collins

    Cape Cod has tons of “kid-friendly” fishing opportunities. When I fished as a kid I really only cared about: Catching anything and everything. Small fish, big fish…tadpoles…didn’t matter! Exploring outside and getting dirty, seeing cool creatures and having fun. And my parents cared about: Easy access, where they could park the car and enjoy the experience without any hassles. Finding a little time to kick back and relax. This is simple fishing – no big boats or expensive gear required! So based off the above criteria I decided to produce this post about 5…

    It really is a terrible thing to have problems that keep you up at night. Just last week I sat down to tie up a few halo hackle, Klinkhamer style things with grizzly hackle. No I don’t have a name for them. This whole halo hackle concept is a wonderfully South African idea bank, that has been brewing for a while, with several variants around. I seldom tie a batch of flies the same as the last, and each time I fiddle with the pattern, so don’t ask me to name them. Suffice it to say they have a cute orange thing on top to aid my eyesight, a bum that trails in the water to wiggle at the…

    In his book “Fly fishing outside the box”, Peter Hayes says that one needs watchable fish in order to study their behavior. That sounds like an obvious thing to say, but let’s consider it in the South African context: In the Western Cape we have generally clear streams emanating from a rocky landscape. The streambed is often pale, even whitish in colour, and although the slightly brackish water gives the streambed a yellow tinge, you still commonly have many pale areas against which trout spotting opportunities abound. In the Eastern Cape the streams are a bit more inclined to dirty…
