We take this opportunity to say thank you to all of our readers, friends, clients, and customers who read our blogs, fish our flies, hire our guides and take our trips. Without you we wouldn't be here doing the things we love and for that a simple thank you doesn't seem to be enough. We are very thankful for each of you and we wish you all a very Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year.
We wrap up this year with two more of our story contest entries. Both writers recall a fishing experience that ended up being something quite unexpected. Next week when we are all back in our normal work week routines and the holidays are behind us for another year, we'll resume our regular blog.
I was trolling at peters Pond on the Cape but I decided to throw a dry fly, and much to my surprise a winged creature came back at me. when I draw my line in the fly I had on attracted a bat. And that’s the only time I’ve caught a bad while fly fishing. I had my lifelong friend with me and we often tell this story when we get together with our fishing buddies. –Bryan Parrish
I was fishing for Tarpon on a lagoon in Puerto Rico for the first time years ago. I saw a long shadow swimming along about 75 feet away and made two casts at it. Thought it was a great fish. There was a swirl and spray of water which scared the hell out me. What I thought was a tarpon was a scuba diver snorkeling across the reef! No kidding.... never tried since -Henry Ramsey
