Posted 06-16-2011 at 04:28 AM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

Tarpon Time Again!!

Posted 06-07-2011 at 05:42 PM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

Once again it is time for my annual trek to the Keys to chase Silver!! Just ordered a bunch of materials for tying up Double Bunnies and had them shipped to Key Largo. Also order some EP black tailed finger mullet flies as well. Maybe next year I'll sit down at the vise and figure out how to tie my own!!

Talked with Dad last week and he said there are plenty of Tarpon around. Most were still headed south and will until the worm hatch is over. They tend to focus on that hatch and...

3rd Float of The Snake 2011 In The Books!!

Float # 2 Coming Up!!

Posted 05-01-2011 at 03:50 PM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

After more than a month we are finally getting back out on the river. The water will be high and still quite cold, but the weather is finally going to cooperate!!!

Looking at temps around 50 and no precipitation, unless the weather man has decided to lie again.

Two friends and I will be headed down to float Wilson to South Fork. Had an okay trip back on April 1st with some other friends. But thanks to the dragging on of winter and high flows on the South Fork we have...
