the biggest mistake about fly fishing, is that its just about fish

Lately things have been good!

These last few weeks have gone by insanely fast, but slow at times too. Im leaving this coming thursday for another season in alaska, and i really cant wait. I have been fishing like crazy, and the bassin has been pretty good. We had some insane weather that has done weird things to the bite, but all in all its been pretty good. On a note that has me and dougie bummed out, our fishin buddy marty, who was in my previous post has moved down to arizona to take a job in order to better himself and open up so new options for himself. We only got to chill for a short time, but as he told me "us buds stick together," and i am sure we will.

I probably wont have any more bass shots for all you pond junkies, but soon ill have some nice stories of the great white north. I cant wait for things to come, and i promise some good content.

Also, something cool thats workin for me at the moment, i have submitted one of my fly patterns to solitude fly company, and it will hopefully make the cut.

Ill keep you folks updated!

keep em tight,

"Its a team effort"

Recently i have been hanging out with some old friends, and made a group of new ones.

This is really one of the things that really draws me to fishing. Its not the fish you catch, but the people you catch them with. For too long i have been a purist to fly fishing, and i will even admit to a certain point i even looked down on gear fishermen. Two days ago i ordered a new Powell Max 702 and matched it with a Shimano Sahara, this all because the ponds ive been fishing with my buds are weedy, and my good ol' trout stick just doesn't cut the mustard anymore.

For the last two months, i have become a bass commando.

Almost every other day i am on the water, and what i love about bass fishing is that things only get better when the sun goes down.

Thursday was a banner day for bass fishing. Went exploring to a new pond, which was kinda a bust. Then headed over to a new little pond, and smacked em. WE (team effort) probably landed close to 60 fish on the day.

The real story began well after the sun went down.

Me and my bud dougie hit a local pond. Got a few fish. And then dougie caught "the one." This bass was well over the magic number of 10 pounds.

It was a team effort
