Report/a photo, catching up

I must apologize for the lack of reports lately; the shop has been very busy, and I’ve been catching up with a lot of less-than-thrilling things like receiving and re-stocking. That said, I have been fishing though mainly at night. Two nights ago I was invited on a last-minute trip that Alex Powers had put…

Fishing with Aaron Monday and Tuesday

Aaron and I fished two days earlier this week and I can tell you honestly that the wind was with teeth. Day One: Our first morning started out in fine fashion. Aaron and I poled an edge for about 20 minutes before I felt Aaron kick the boat around for a shot. We could see…

Fishing the next two days

Tomorrow begins a two-day stint with Aaron, and we are most likely going to look for the 6. Report and photographs to follow as always. I have heard that there are some large creatures in the backcountry still, and we saw a few during the Merkin that would have made the grade. ncl/tac

March Merkin Results/report

The Angling Company would like to congratulate Captain Scott Collins and Dr. Greg Smith on their victory in the 2012 March Merkin tournament. Scott and Greg caught a fish on day one, and then essentially won the tournament on day 2 when they released three permit. If you don’t have respect for this, something’s wrong.…

Cold front/barracuda photos

Given that there is a very windy cold front sitting on us at the moment, I was wondering what to write here. Captain Raymond Vasquez had emailed me some photos of a very large barracuda the other day that I had not yet posted, so here they are: Hopefully this cold front will leave before…

Fishing yesterday

Yesterday I fished with Aaron Snell. After I retrieved my forgotten stretcher box (realizing very soon thereafter that my supply of pre-tested 6 lb was running dangerously low) we drove up to Sugarloaf and splashed the boat. Aaron found some fish pretty quickly, though we (I) had a tough time getting the fly where it…
