If the Keys Won’t Have Me, Maybe Venice Will

Last week the Professor and I fished two days in the MS marsh looking for redfish. As you know we had success on the first day, but the very next morning fish were scarce and skittish. Which gave me more time to try my hand at poling the skiff. I can’t believe how hard it [...]

To Wind or Unwind, That Is The Question

It was the last day of our recent Montana trip and we found ourselves in an uncharacteristic debacle. Should we fish or not? We’d already had some great days on the Beaverhead and Big Hole and that last day was cloudy (great streamer fishing) and chilly (great streamer fishing) and super windy (ugh). The wind [...]

Mellow Yellow

Sorry I haven’t had a chance to finish the updates on our recent Montana trip. My computer staged a non-violent sit-in to protest overuse, but then proceeded to experience full on cardiac arrest last week. It was finally carried away on a stretcher yesterday and after a few rounds with the paddles, it is now [...]

Wynona’s Big Brown Beaverhead

Okay, so the only brown we caught on the Beaverhead wasn’t big at all, it was a teeny little guy, but we did have two days of primus prime primo dry fly fishing on the Beaverhead catching several nice rainbows. I caught this fish on a trico right out of the gate.   The Professor [...]

Pink Ribbon

I wish I could take credit for coordinating my pink shirt with breast cancer awareness month. But I did catch this fiesty Beaverhead rainbow yesterday with an incrdible ribbon of pink on it. Gorgeous fish, great float. Think Pink. [Posted with iBlogger from my iPhone]

If At First You Dont Succeed Try And Trico Again

We may not have caught redfish two weeks ago but we were damn near surgical yesterday on the beaverhead. Within fifteen minutes on the water the Professor and I both hooked up nice rainbows on two different trico patterns. [Posted with iBlogger from my iPhone]

Do As The Romans Do

Or in this case, Ben Romans. The Professor and I first bumped into Ben Romans summer before last in The Melrose Bar after a day of fishing on The Big Hole. We didn’t chat that night but in a small-world twist of fate we ran into his buddy the next day on the river – [...]

A Pinch Of Salt

Hoping to get lucky with the redfish this weekend, the Professor and I threw our 8-weights over our left shoulders right into the truck and dashed over to the Pascagoula Marsh for a few hours of saltwater fishing. We didn’t have a ton of time because we had to get home to catch the second [...]

Rockstars and Rocks and Stars

September has been a whirlwind month with my “FFC Turns 40 World Domination Birthday Tour”. My head is spinning with all the tales I have to share. It all started in Atlanta with a fun-filled Labor Day weekend, cheering for the Tarheels in the Georgia Dome. Then the following weekend, Little Chick and I ventured [...]

Apparently We Have A Pretty Deep Bench

With thirteen UNC players suspended – eight of them starters – we thought Coach Butch Davis might need our help on the field last night at the season opener against LSU. After all I do have four full years eligibility in tact. So we suited up for the cause. Apparently we have a pretty deep [...]
