A not so small smallie

Steve and I hit the potomac today. It is my first day back on a river since May 14th…and it was very nice to be back. The fish weren’t exactly hopping all over the flies but it was a good time. Oh and Steve caught a beast. Biggest smallmouth I have seen in person. Best part was it took a crease fly on top.

The Delta Trout Force

Check out this spread that Parker and his buddy Danny have in Catch Magazine. Prior to living here, he went to school out in Denver and apparently lived the good life fishing for trout. While you are at it, make sure to check out DTF’s website for some quality fish pron.

Parker has been sending me texts of monster carp munching on mulberrys that he has come across during his lunch break at work. Seeing as his office is only two blocks away, I might have to try out the fly below sometime soon. I know its not pretty but hopefully they will eat it just for the effort.

Cow tipping

Lauren and I went out of fletchers on Sunday. I had the hopes and dreams of getting into some schoolie stripers on fly. I didn’t exactly row all the way up to Chain Bridge but I came close. And the schoolies? I guess I got them. Maybe preschoolers if that….

Besides the stripers, we found ourselves a couple hickory shad and a catfish. We didn’t exactly hammer them but hey fishing is fun none the less. Oh and we didnt catch a touring kayaker! That alone is worth bragging about given how many of them were paddling around.

By the way, take a look at some of the Virginia Beach kayak fishing sites for some serious reds.

Hackleheads 1

Threw together a short clip from the past year. It includes footage from Goodnews, Belize, and DC. Will try to do more of these in the future. The first 2 sections were filmed on a gopro (and not very well) and the last is with a Canon t2i. Enjoy!
