The last two days

The last two day I fished with Aaron Snell. We fished alone the first day, and Dave Dalu joined us yesterday. Dave and I were supposed to fish again today with Captain Ray Vasquez, but we had to reschedule the day due to family commitments. Day one: Aaron and I began at a reasonable 9:30…

Fishing Last Night

Last night I had dinner with Ray Vasquez, and it didn’t take very long before we decided we should give this whole “fly fishing for tarpons” thing a try. We grabbed a few rods, hopped in the skiff, and after a 20 minute ride we stopped to look for fish. We didn’t see any at…

This morning I fished with Captain Ray Vasquez. We left early and arrived early at the spot; by 6:30 we were fishing. Ray was up first, and we were in fish from the beginning. He had a few shots before one appeared to eat the fly; through no fault of his own (the fish may…

Fishing yesterday, a great battle

Yesterday I fished with Aaron Snell, and we were in full pursuit of the 6. The problem, this time of year, is that most of the fish come in sizes too small and places too deep for success. As such, we made a major concession when we decided to look for a large fish in…

So much pons

It’s good out there. Also good to be at work, but I mean really. Come on, you’d rather be out there too. Aaron Snell emailed me these photos to prove it: Enjoy; I hope you’re out there. Regards, ncl
