If you read my previous post you know we covered a lot of ground in Charleston last weekend. Unfortunately the only stone we left unturned was redfishing. It was hard to look out across those beautiful marshes and not have the time (or gear) to get out there and sneak up on some tailing reds… [...]
The glare of the hot lights, the stark walls of the interrogation room closing in on me, the long hours, the lack of sleep…I told him everything he wanted to hear. Okay, okay, so it wasn’t like that at all. When Chris Hunt from the website, Eat More Brook Trout, asked if he could [...]
We were in Mobile last week and as part of my birthday celebration I had requested a morning on the water, redfishing over in Mississippi. Due to an abundance of Friday night birthday fun involving rich food, red wine, and decadent birthday cake, we were a little slower than planned out of the gate Saturday [...]
I’m about as current as leg warmers these days. I’m going about 1000 different directions (things like school supplies and science textbook covers) so mea culpa if this seems like old news to you, but I am very excited. I just got copies of the two biggest fly fishing books of 2011. Departure Publishing (yes, [...]
Oh, I mean comments of course. You see, after 3 1/2 years I have redecorated the FLY FISH CHICK website. I am very excited, way overdue for this shot in the arm. What do you think? It’s a work-in-progress so stick with me as I add features and navigate a few kinks in the process. [...]
As we speak, just about every fly-fishing professional and self-proclaimed troutnut on the planet is en route to New Orleans for the International Fly Tackle Dealer convection. I’m not much of a convention gal but I will admit I am feeling a bit envious considering I love New Orleans. And New Orleans loves me. I [...]
Before I turn this post into a trippy, winding conversation about music, let me give you the latest update on the book. The publisher has posted an excerpt on his website so click here if you’d like to read Chapter Two. As exciting as it is to see my words posted on his website, I [...]
Until next time…
I am not over the rainbows. Still love ‘em. Caught this on the Missouri on this evening’s caddis hatch.
We have been back in Montana for about one week and while we have been on the water a bit, mostly we have been enjoying family, laughing a ton and eating extremely well. In terms of the fishing, highlights include: floating the Missouri with my new niece (the Professor’s niece) who tricked a few fish [...]
We were in Montana for 2.5 weeks ready-to-wear the trout out, but record snowpack and high water were the big statewide trend, limiting our runway to play. But with a little creative ingenuity we found fishable trout streams and uncovered some gems. The big buzz? Brown trout are all the rage this season. and…..
The adrenalin rush of big browns eating big bugs was the only panancea that could ease the pain of the walking (nay fishing) wounded. The Professor has a vicious case of tendonitis in his elbow while I have lower back pain again. His hurts while playing fish, mine hurts pulling up the anchor. After catching [...]
Fork in the road–as in Henry’s Fork. With Montana rivers flooding their banks the Professor and I chose to venture down to the Henry’s Fork in Idaho for three or four days. Grey drakes and caddis were abundant but we really struck gold with the golden stones. Our power float the last day was epic.
