Day one on the Water

Posted 06-22-2011 at 07:33 PM by mbphotos54

well first day on real water was a bust, the creek I had planed to fish today was swelling from alot of rain over the last few days, and throw in an average of 15-20mph winds that location was a bust, I did get to cast a bit there and did get in a few rollcasts. I decided to try a small pond here close by, and one side was out of the wind but it was the corner where the grass carp are rolling right now, so more casting practice was had. now that I think about it I dont know what I would have done...

Catch & Release Salmon Fishing;

Posted 06-22-2011 at 05:04 PM by Hardyreels

If you've read other entries here you know we have an annual limit on harvest of king salmon. I'm at 3 and will hold out for either more big ones or a nice male fresh in. I went out very early today and used the same fly that has caught the fish so far this year. I'm very much in the 'if it ain't broke then don't fix it' club and things worked out well. Almost everything that is, I don't know how long it will take for me to learn to check all the settings on my camera before taking pictures. Way...

Tarpon Day 4

Posted 06-20-2011 at 09:14 PM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

I'd love to tell everyone it was a stellar day, but that was not the case. Headed out at 7:00AM and found the best flats already full of boats. Very disconcerting to say the least so it was time to explore new fishing grounds.

We headed south from Ocean Reef in search of a place to intercept some north bound fish. We ended up staking out 3 good spots. However the cloud cover limited visibility to 30ft or less due to the glare on the water. Even with polarized glass seeing sets of fish...

Tarpon Day 3

Posted 06-19-2011 at 05:49 PM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

Well it turned into just a lazy Fathers Day for my Dad and I. We slept in and went out to breakfast. After sharing a bite to eat it was over to the Orvis shop to pick up Dad's new Mirage VII Shallow reel to go on his Helios 12wt. Also picked up a few new flies to try on the picky Tarpon of Ocean Reef Club.

We were hoping that by the time we finished goofing around the cloud cover may have cleared and we could head for the flats. No such luck!! But we did not let bad visibility stop...

Day two of annual Tarpon quest yeilds no joy!!

Posted 06-18-2011 at 02:37 PM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

Well we got up at 6:30AM and had a quick cup a coffee. Then we loaded up and head to the dock. We ended up being the first ones out on the flats probably due to the early morning cloud cover making visibility non existent. In tarpon fishing spotting the fish is the first key to success. But we were able to once again stake out our favorite flat for getting in front of north bound sets of fish.

For the first couple of hours the visibility remained difficult but we were able to spot a...
