Agua Boa Album

I think I've got the Wordpress album figured out. Here are a few shots from our recent Agua Boa peacock bass trip. One of the best trips ever!

New Site

After many months in the planning, we launched the new web site last night. We're still tweaking, of course, but excited about it. The store will grow as we add flies and put the finishing touches on it to make it as easy to use as possible. We're hopeful that the Connect Community will be a fun place for everyone to share photos, conversations, tips, comments, and stories. We welcome your suggestions and comments.

We got home from the Amazon last Sunday night. We had a great trip. Lots of fish, water was in great shape, and amazing stories to tell by all. We broke the lodge record for broken rods (I don't know if that is something we should talk too much about). We had a group of good fishermen but the bass were rested, hungry and determined to test our skills and tackle!

We fished the river and the lagoons and  found fish everywhere we went. We had long fishing days. If you want, you can cast continuously all day. As they say, keep your fly in the water and keep it moving.

Thank you to Frontiers for organizing the departure and to Agua Boa Amazon Lodge. We'll see you next year!

Bluegrass TU, Lexington, KY

We spent the weekend in Lexington, KY. It was a beautiful fall weekend and the opening of Keenland so needless to say town was full of horse people. But, we were there for a TU event at Talon Winery. We had a casting clinic, demo, and Barry presented his Digital Photography program. It was a beautiful fall afternoon and evening. Live music, good food, great company.

Saturday we spent a day on the lovely Cumberland River with guides Mike Wloswski and Troy Humphrey. Our fishing partners were Susan Slade and Robert Van Onselder and we had a great time. Caught a few fish, enjoyed a beautiful day, and ate lots of good food as the photos will show.

Thank you Bluegrass TU for a great weekend.

From Pluma Lodge, Bolivia

Yesterday was our last day of fishing. We will soon load up the ATVs for our trip out of the jungle to the Indian village where we will meet our little plan plane back to Santa Cruz. Overnight there tonight, fly to Miami tomorrow, overnight in Miami tomorrow night, and home on Saturday.

I am still fighting with the Wordpress app from my iPad. Seems like a lot of people are having problems with it. It makes me anxious to get home, launch the new web site and blog. Enough of Wordpress for me.

We have had an incredible time. This is a wild place  and a wild river. It's amazing to see the dorado crashing into the sabalo with fish and bait flying everywhere. It's very much like a bluefish/striper blitz on the east coast.

Our guides have been amazing too. It's very interesting too see how well they work with the Indian boatmen. Everyone helps each other whether it's pushing and pulling the heavy dug-out canoes up through the rapids, spotting dorado, or sharing lunch. Everyone is very patient, no one shouts or looses their patience - even when the boatmen have disappeared into the jungle hunting when we're ready to move!

They are loading the ATVs. More to come when we get home, with photos!

Summer on the Bighorn

Summer on the Bighorn River
Summer on the Bighorn River


Lots of dry fly fishing this month on the Bighorn River in Montana. It hasn't been this good in years. Yellow Sallies, Tricos, Tan & Black Caddis, Mahogany Duns, you name it, we're seeing it right now. It's like the old days. Dry flies all day long. Incredible!

We'll be back, same time, same place next year. If you're thinking of a western fishing trip, we urge you to consider Kingfisher Lodge with us on the Bighorn!

Bolivia and Dorado

Dorado fishing in Bolivia is one of the most exciting trips you'll ever take. The entire trip is an adventure; traveling through the airports, the country, the camps, and most of all the fish. There is nothing like Dorado for reel-screaming action. We still have a few openings in the second week, Sept. 14-25, 2012 (door-to-door). 8 nights, 6.5 days fishing. $7,600 per person. More information & itinerary. Call us today!
