Kayak Fly Fishing Tips

The beauty of angling is that there are so many different types of fish that can be caught and different methods that can be used to do so. While some anglers enjoy the peaceful tranquility of trolling from their kayak, others love the adrenaline rush of battling it out with with a huge saltwater fish. Then there is the special breed of anglers who prefer the pure thrill of fly fishing.

Three St. Croix Rods Worth Trying out

During the ICAST 2017 On the Water event, we had a chat with Dan Johnston from St Croix Fishing Company. He introduced us to three of their most popular fishing rods.

Oregon Rockfish on the Fly

Few people have experienced the stillness of the Northern Pacific under a fog. The silence of the water. Air with a slight chill. And what seems to be all the Pacific Rockfish rockfish in the world just a few feet under the surface.

When fishing from a kayak, space is always a concern. When fly fishing in windy conditions, line management is a big issue. You can always up your fly rod size and cast a lower cast, but when you’re stripping the line to the deck it can get out of control.

Florida Freshwater Pit Fishing

It’s springtime here in Florida, and that means fish both fresh and salt are active - very active. This trip, we agreed to fish the freshwater. We had just had two days of rain, so we knew there would be flowing water from culverts and overflows between lakes that would concentrate fish. The place we chose to launch the kayaks is a management area called Tenoroc.

Fly Fishing and Falconry

Over a recent weekend, fishing partner Josh Slager and I met with fellow fly fishermen and falconers Eric Edwards and Spence for a St. Johns River shad fishing trip, followed by hunting with a merlin. This came about at the last minute but, wow, what a great day indeed!

2014 F3T Film Review

2014 is the seventh year for the Fly Fishing Film Tour. I have become a fan of F3T, and have been to the last three. Many anglers are catching the bug, as the two events for Charleston sold out at least a few weeks before the February 22 showings. I’m sure that it was the same story in Boise, ID. This year’s eight short films were all “thumbs up” in my opinion, and that of others I talked to after the show.

Some days everything just comes together - the weather is perfect, you pick the right fly, and you find the right spot. This was one of those days. After an evening of tying flies, I woke up and loaded my Bull Bay Rods 8wt “Excel” series fly rod, with my Waterworks Lamson fly reel, loaded it into my Native “Ultimate 12” kayak and off I went.
