Where Fly Fishing is a Professional Passion…..

Great Day of Weather….Phenomenal Fishing….

Sun. Mar. 10, 2013…..Got in kind of late and was late posting a report….but it was gooo…..a good day…well, actually a great day I guided Kelly, Alex , and Harrison Harrill and we had a 40-50 fish day , the water is in good shape and I expect we will see some topwater action soon particularly with all this warmer weather.  Lots of snow melting but its keeping stream levels just about perfect.  Amazing how one stream is high though and another low, even some that are only a few miles away from each other.


It was Alex’ and Harrison’s first fly fishing trip and they scored 15 and 16 each…respectively….pretty impressive  I would say.  We did a lesson, then hit the water….I’d say they took to it pretty well.  15 or 16 fish your first time out is a feat…..that’s a good day no matter how long you have been fishing.  We fished two waters, caught a good mix of browns (lots of browns), rainbows, and brook char, and caught all of them nymphing.


We caught several citation fish…..and had two of the largest brook trout I have seen in a long time come off right at the net…..  Harrison caught several citation fish, the largest one this brook trout below.  He also had on a rainbow that was near 25″ long that came off after a long, spirited fight….


Good day though, hard to imagine how great the weather was after what I guided and fished in all last week….   Technically spring will be here in less than three weeks but we always have a handful of weather surprises…… I expect this year to be no different.  We’ll see…  Here’s a funny clip from SIMMS ….seems they have been doing their rendition of the ‘Harlem Shake’……funny


Busy week coming up, will be out tomorrow on the water guiding longtime customer David Carter and his son Patrick.  I am expecting a good day, fishing has been nothing short of incredible.  Have trips also this week with Shaun Redgate, Forest, VA, and Len Worsham on Wednesday….and Thursday will be taking my sons fishing.   Have some rare March openings this week, a Friday and Saturday…..the rest of the month is filling up as well.  If you are tired of winter and wanted a quick shot of red hot fishing….now is your time.  A phone call or an email and you and I can be slaying some fish….its that good right now.  And it looks like its going to be like that this spring!  I can’t wait….  going to be a lot of large fish caught too as the conditions are perfect for it.

Have one slot remaining for our 3/20 Escatawba trip, and at $185 is a bargain….instead of the normal $250 rate……

Have a great evening and a good Monday and start to your week….!  Will have current report on river conditions and the fishing when we are on the water in the morning….

The past week with rising water temps the fish have been munching some of my new dead squirrel fly patterns like crazy….they’ve caught almost all of the large/larger fish.
