The Beginning

Posted 05-19-2015 at 02:38 PM by rod10

With the water warming and the chrome starting to move up river, the excitement i feel is that of Christmas morning when I was younger. Just knowing of what is to come in the river had me full of excitement. It has been 8 straight days now that I have been fishing my favorite river, The St. Mary's river and having some unbelievable clients and some great fishing already. It seem the firsts few days there were few fish and they all seemed to have loved the hex pattern that we were throwing at them....

A Guy Fishes Streamers & Get Skunked;

Posted 04-27-2015 at 02:40 PM by Hardyreels

I found a post today that was about a fellows first day fishing streamers and he ask where to try the next time. I couldn't tell him where to fish so I tried to help him understand how.

Hi,

Although I no longer live in the North East I may be able to offer advice anyway. If you like fishing streamers there are almost always a few fish you should be able to get interested in your flies. If I were on the stream you were at last week first off I would want to know what...

Well, here's the first post to my first blog. Ever. I don't know where this is going or what I'm going to end up talking about. I just have been getting this itch to say something besides my semi-weekly posts/threads on the forum for some time now, and so here it goes.

The Beginning.

I probably caught my first fish (a small catfish) from a tiny pond near Columbia, MO before I was four years old. I was teaching my little brother how to cast two years later. By...

A Fish Story

I should start this story by saying I'd been skunked two days in a row. So, I was a bit frustrated.

So when a buddy of mine, Muzz, asks me if I want to go fishing for the weekend up north during the "super" moon, I hesitated. Apparently, this weekend the full moon would be bigger and brighter than any we've had in a thousand years or whatever. This will most assuredly get the fish into a wild feeding frenzy.

The 2012 Bear Encounter;

Posted 04-12-2015 at 01:26 PM by Hardyreels

The Bear Encounter

It was August and as summer wound down the season had been pretty much a total bust for salmon. Almost every river from the Yukon in Western Alaska to here in my region was closed for the poor king salmon returns. Our Silvers were closed on many rivers as well.

During July I had became so desperate for fresh salmon I drove all the way to Chitna on the Copper River to try my hand at dip netting for sockeye. All I can tell you about this adventure is...
