Unexpected Run to the River

After doing some maintenance work on the site, I realized for some reason this story never published here from a few weeks ago. I had posted on a kayak fishing forum and our Trailing Hook Journal site, but didn't realize it never got posted here. So...

Catching A Break

I had come to terms with the fact I wasn’t going to get out fishing for a while. It’s already been two weeks and I figured it would be a few more. But around 8pm last night, a few things changed. I was released from prior obligations and sudde...

Filming in the Rain

I haven't had much time lately to do much of anything outside of work, including over here. But I was able to get out on Tuesday to get a little shooting done. It was raining so I left all my regular gear and kayak at home. I threw in my cameras and...

Last River Trip of 2014

I thought last week would be my last river trip of the year, but things worked out for me again this Tuesday. After sitting down on Monday and trying to figure out how I could make it happen, I opted for a quick trip down a stretch of river I have...

A Peaceful Day Off

I'm one of those people who seem to have a hundred things going at once. I'm usually getting pulled in every direction and sometimes it can be a little overwhelming. About 10% is actual work related, and the other 90% is things i'm passionate abou...

A Well Needed Day Off

 It's been nearly six weeks since I have been able to get on the water. Work has gone crazy and you have to get it while you can. Hopefully this will be the longest stretch until next year. It's always tough around this time, but six weeks real...

Fishing the South Concho

 Our day started off with a major setback as my son and I prepared for an all day fishing marathon on the river. We knew this would be the last opportunity we'd have to fish like this because of school starting and my job about to get crazy. It...

The Battle was On

Me vs. Mother Nature. It's been in the 90's with a few 100's over the past few weeks and will continue through the rest of the week. But today, my only day off, it started in the upper 40's with high winds and storms a brewin'. I knew this morning...

The Day O' Dinks

But what a great day it was. I'm starting to get days off again, so I always make the best of them...regardless of the ever present wind. I dropped the kids off and made the twenty mile trek to the river. I was on the water by 8:30. The wind was n...

Quick Trip on the Fly

This isn't really about flyfishing, but more about how quick things had to come together to get on the water. For the last 8 weeks we've been going 6-7 days a week. No time for fishing or much of anything else. I have done hours of day dreaming at wo...
