My longtime friend Ryan Warner asked me to come film him do a wood-carving. I had no idea what he was going to do until I got there and saw it. Ryan carved my logo for me on an old piece of barn wood. Blows me away. Thank you, Ryan. You're the man!

Big Shiny Camera: LUMIX GH4
Big Shiny Lens: LUMIX 12-35MM F2.8 II
Edited in Adobe Premiere Pro
Slow motion footage: 720 @ 240 fps

Shot in Ryan's wood shop in Oxford, NY.

People have asked about buying my book for a holiday gift. I have a limited edition set of signed books that come with a free lure and a smallmouth beanie. Each book will be signed by me and numbered 1/50, 2/50, 3/50 etc. Once these 50 are gone I won't have any more to sell until after the holidays. Total price for the book, hat, and lure is $50!

This is just a short clip that shows you how to fish my favorite swimbait for smallmouth bass. The Reaction Innovation Skinny Dipper, paired with the Strike King Tour Grade Round Jig Head is deadly on smallmouth! Try them and you won't be disappointed. Both of them are available at Fishermans Central in the links below:

I'd never been ling fishing, never really had a good day on the ocean for anything. Ling fishing was definitely a first for me in that we were finesse fishing in the ocean, which is not something I was prepared for. When you're trying to feel bites that are over 100 feet deep, on heavy rods with heavy weight it's very difficult. It was a great learning experience and I had a blast.

If you haven't been to the Salmon River in Pulaski, NY then you haven't experienced what true aggression is when it comes to fighting a world class fish.

Today I'm headed down the Salmon River in Pulaski, NY with Will Watkins from A Will 2 Fish. Will is taking myself and my good buddy George Zervos in his drift boat. Also joining us today is Bridget Martin. Bridget is a student at SUNY Oneonta, and she will be filming with me over the next 12-18 months.

Book a trip with Will Watkins via facebook (search for awill2fish)

Book a trip with George Zervos and On The Fly Guide Service at The Salmon River via facebook (search for ontheflyguide)

This area of the Salmon River is outside of the DSR, and what many people believe to be more of a throwback to the way it was many years ago. It's crowded, rowdy, but also beautiful for those same reasons. Will is an excellent guide. If you're looking to book a trip he's a fantastic resource.

Be sure to check out my book if you haven't yet, link is below.

Thanks!
