    I got lucky and was able to fly out of NC yesterday morning. Made it down to FL to spend a couple days fishing with my cousin. I came down really hoping to catch my first tarpon in fly, I have NOT been disappointed!
    Today I was able to check a few species off my fly list.
    Tarpon, snook, tilapia, Mayan cichlids
    I bought myself a 5wt tfo a2 today, I was able to test it out on that tilapia before I purchased it.
    Cant wait to see what tomorrow brings!

    Well I traded my Scott A4 9' 8wt in toward a Scott Meridian 9' 8wt. I took it out for the first time this morning to see what the rod could do. The flies the A4 somewhat struggled with were a breeze for the Meridian.



    I got a bonus, a hungry Largemouth Bass. First fish on my new fly rod.



    I'll be using this rod tomorrow AM for Coho Salmon. So far so good!

    Nothing really tastes like chicken. Chicken is the universal food. It taste like everything else. You can eat chicken and close your eyes and imagine you’re eating alligator, turtle, rattlesnake, etc., etc....��

    Last sunday, went to get some deer stands set up and the land owner has a pond. Land owner I guess has a degree in fish biology, and manages his pond quite well. Just about every cast I was pulling these out until the sun went down. The fly is one I tied, a 1/124 jig with a chenille tail, estaz body and black rubber legs. Girlfriend was throwing a pink one, I was throwing chartreuse. I switched to a crawfish fly that I tied and something broke off my 10lb leader.

    I'm not sure how, but I caught this gar on a yellow/white Clouser. No pics, but before this, I pulled in four or five small bluegill on a little bead-head nymph that I bought at the Orvis shop in Bellevue, WA. I never got the chance to fish it for trout when I was there, so I decided to see how the bluegill in Florida would like it. They liked it.

    PS: No gar were harmed in the making of this episode. It looks like it is not moving, but that was about the only two seconds when it was out of the water that it was not. It took about four tries to get the hook out and release the fish. Bass and bluegill will stay still. This fish was having none of that!

    People complain about the humidity in Florida... but no one's ever had to shovel humidity to get to his car.
