Fly Fishing Alphonse Atoll, Seychelles 2016

Fly Fishing Bucket List

Seychelles is one of those saltwater fly fishing destinations that's on just about every fly fisher's bucket list.  And if it's not on one's list they either live under a boulder or... Well, they must live under a boulder.  To many, a trip of this caliber may seem simply out of reach.  Well, I'm not here to tell you to just do it because you only LIVE once, but coming from someone who came from a low-income family and is currently a fly fishing guide for a living... It can be within reach and I did it!  It was a trip of a lifetime and I'm already planning on going back.  What a trip it was!

New Orleans Summer Bull Redfish Action is HOT!

Fall is coming, but the bull redfish don't care what season it is.  They have been around all summer and August has been on fire!  Took Eric and Scott from Florida out for some hot Louisiana marsh redfish and black drum fly fishing action.  There were tons of both bull redfish and black drum missed, a few hooks pulled, lines break, and so on, but we got lots of shots and plenty of fish to the boat.  Scott even got his largest redfish on fly that day.  It was a fun day as usual!  I even got to spend a little time on the bow of the skiff.  Thanks for the bow time, guys.

I LOVE my job!

Fly Fishing Spring & Summer - New Orleans, Louisiana

When you think of fly fishing near New Orleans, Louisiana, what is it that comes to mind?  Based on what I hear from most anglers around the country, you would probably think of the cool air of fall and winter on your face as you hunt for giant bull redfish.  We definitely have some great weather days accompanied by some fantastic fishing in the fall and winter, but you're shooting yourself in the foot if you think that's the only good time to fish the Louisiana marsh!  Spring and summer can produce INCREDIBLE fishing opportunities!  The temperatures may be hot, but so is the fishing!
