  • Bourbon Whiskey & Fly Fishing

    Bourbon Whiskey & Fly Fishing

    After a spill in the water this afternoon, I knew that I was going to talk bourbon tonight. I love to sink a few cold beers in a Spring Creek on a hot summer day. Likewise, a black cigar in the height of mosquito season is pretty hard to beat. But both are seasonal for me. I’m not a big beer drinker in cold weather (okay, I sneak in a few), and I rarely smoke a cigar when the bugs have died down or I’m on open water. But bourbon whiskey?
  • Tenkara Stream Fly Fishing

    Tenkara Stream Fly Fishing

    What the hell is it, right? That's got to be the first question for most folks. It's a Japanese-style of mountain stream flyfishing that was popularized over 100 years ago, but has been in existence for perhaps well over 1,000 years. And thanks to Daniel Galhardo, the founder of Tenkara USA, and his effective campaign to introduce Tenkara to Western flyfishermen, it's popping up in traditional magazine articles and social media more and more. But what the hell is it, right? I've yet to fish Tenkara, but I'm wildly intrigued. I'm by choice a stream fisherman first, and the idea of a style of flyfishing that is so specific to that setting is certainly appealing.

    Kirman Lake Brookies with the Old Man

    My Dad and I started the weekend in front of a barbed wire fence, and on the other side was the beginning of our 6 mile hike in and out of Kirman Lake. If we could get there, it was said that the brookies were as fat as footballs…How can anyone resist, right? Certainly not the avid fly fishermen that needed to know the truth behind this tall tale.

    IFTD, N'awlins, Redfish & Trapper Joe

    We had a fantastic trip to New Orleans this weekend for the Internat'l Flyfishing Tackle Dealers (IFTD) trade show. Over 250 new products on display, and a fairly robust floor show. The traffic wasn't heavy - it would have been great to see more of the public, or more of the local guides and shops - but this is a traditionally smaller show than, say, Outdoor Retailer. Nonetheless, I have to wonder about the choice of New Orleans in mid-August, where temperatures seem to hover around 100 degrees.
