Dry Shake Accident
I found one way to keep the inside of my slingpack dry. Leave some dry shake partially open. Your pack will stay annoyingly dry for what seems like an eternity. I used to like dry shake and feel it was God's gift to fishermen. Now every time I reach in my p...

Eno Jewels
Yesterday I hit the Eno to get some time on the water and try out a 7wt I haven't fished. The water was low and clear but the fish were very eager. Caught a few sunfish and one rare Roanoke Bass.  It was a great day and I was happy to find fish in spite of ...

Copperheads are Pretty Snakes
People aren't fond of anything that can harm them and what I've found around here is people hate the one venomous snake in our area. It's called a copperhead and as much as I've fished, mtn biked, and hiked I've only seen 2 in the wild. I'm sure I have went...

Missing My Kayak
I've been missing my kayak really bad lately. Watching this video I made of fishing this east carolina lake made it worse. I've been scouring Craigslist for canoes and kayaks but haven't pulled the trigger yet on getting any. Until then I'll have to live vi...

Deep Pools and Bridges
There's something alluring about bridges. I always expect to find a monster fish lurking in the shadows of a bridge. I guess it's from reading books like Billy Goats Gruff as a kid. Sometimes my exceptions are right but even when I can't seem to find any si...

More Incentive to Tie Then Buy
My buddy asked if I wanted to come along with him to our local shop that sells flies. I hadn't been in awhile so I decided to go. We walked over to the fly bin area and I started to scan around at the various patterns. While looking I ran across a small sig...

That Time of Year Again
This spring has been particularly cold. The fish have been confused and so have the humans. We've finally had normal weather recently and I knew the white bass had to be in the river. Since I've had kids it has been harder to motivate myself to get out of b...

Thrills and Gills
The weather this Easter was so nice I asked my daughter if she wanted to try some fishing. She seemed eager and even more so after grandma decided to join us. My mother hasn't been fly fishing in over a year so she was almost learning all over again. The wa...
