Louisiana Coast

To say that my recent trip to New Orleans was awesome would be an understatement. Between the great people, incredible food, and spectacular fishing, there isn’t much more to ask for in a fishing trip. Redfish are, and probably will always be one of my favorite fish to pursue, and if you haven’t had the

Louisiana Coast – January 6, 2011

Let me start by saying that the Louisiana marsh was on fire with fish! Saw plenty of pigs in the 20-30 pound range, but they were rather spooky. Conditions were kind of tough the first few days with the wind and clouds, but it cleared out and the fishing was great the last two days.

Louisiana Coast – May 21, 2010

Despite the oil worries in the Gulf of Mexico the red fishing in south Louisiana was really quite good on our trip May 5th through May 8th. The flies of choice were #2 white and chartreuse Clouser Minnows and gold spoon flies. By the way, the food was pretty good too! Randy G.

New Zealand – December 4 – 2009

I fished the Mataura River on New Zealand’s south island a couple of weeks ago, with Chris Dore of Trout Safaris based out of Queenstown. The scenery was stunning and so were the fish. I cast to lots of ten-plus pound browns and several of them came up to check out my dry fly, but no takers!

Alaska – September 2, 2009

We had a great trip to the Kanektok River in the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. There was a good run of silver salmon that really bent our rods, and the leopard rainbows were really beautiful fish. Silvers this size on a mouse pattern on the surface are a lot of fun — what a
