My fishing bud, my nephew passed away and I'm looking to make a new friend to fish New River...or any water with a fish in it,,in the Giles, Bland, Wythe County areas of Southwest Virginia. I'm not a pro but I love to fish,,am quite an agreeable fella and not competitive against my fishing pard and will not pout if you beat my butt on a days fishing. I love being out there too much to begrudge your success.
I own a kayak and a Bass Raider, but I do not own a full size river boat. I can however, provide more than a good share of the expense of fuel and other necessary cost.
If you wanna fish New River or a local stream I'm ready to go about anytime you want to.
I'm very hesitant to fish the New alone,,being the dangerous river it is. I really respect that river. You might know some areas I don't and I might be able to tell you of somewhere you have yet to try. And I know a lot of the streams in this area really well. We'd have fun regardless. I sometimes, just like to share the fishing with a pard. And of course I can travel some,,,so don't restrict the possibilities to the three counties I mentioned,,those are my 'short time to get to' areas.
Sorry to hear Mike.
I lived and fished the area very extensively up until last year, when I moved out to Franklin Co.
I would be more than happy to meet up and fish with you. I have a couple kayaks, and would be willing to meet you up there one weekend. Just let me know!
Mr White, I'd love to do a day of kayak fishing on the river. What say ye about a day in September ? That'll give the river time to be less full than it is right now and maybe the Small-mouth will be biting great.
If ya'll pm me, we'll exchange phone numbers and talk about this ?
Would love to fish with ya Casey. This county I live in has to be a strange place. I do not know of another person that fly fishes..well,,,not in a serious way... since my nephew passed. I fish a lot alone and that's fine,,but just not all the time. I don't have anyone to 'flip a coin' with for the coffee now
I do catfish a tad with the other nephew and his son,,with spinning gear ,,mostly night fishing. That's about the only kinda other fishing I do besides fly fish.
