  2. Trip Report: Turneffe Atoll, Belize - Aug/Sept. 2016

    Trip Report: Turneffe Atoll, Belize - Aug/Sept. 2016
    I recently spent a week fishing Turneffe Atoll, Belize in preparation for a hosted trip I have scheduled in April. I stayed at the Turneffe Flats lodge, which is located on the northeast (Caribbean) side of the atoll, and is situated in perfect location for easy fishing/diving access. “Flats,” as it’s nicknamed, is even stationed right along a home flat which would hold bonefish and at times permit and triggerfish during various times of the day. Most days, either early morning or when I returned to the lodge in the evening, I would see tailing fish feeding no more than 40 feet away. So, right off the bat the location seemed great. I was anxious to see what the rest of Turneffe Flats would show me.

    “Oooh, I like the looks of that one!” I said as Ben opened up his fly box for me to inspect. I could tell by the look on his face that he did not share my enthusiasm. It was a white and olive Clouser pattern with a lot of gold flash. Gold is always a good choice in the tannin-stained water.

  5. The World’s Best Tarpon Fishing?

    The World’s Best Tarpon Fishing?
    It’s March. If you’re like me, you’re locked in one of the many ‘polar vortices’ that is gripping the country. I don’t know what it is about snow. It’s white after all, but every time it falls I find myself dreaming of silver.
  6. My Favorite Time of Year

    My Favorite Time of Year
      "I feel like I'm about to break an unwritten rule of fly fishing." (tweet this)   Every year we anglers wait in anticipation for the change of the seasons. As winter turns into spring, and spring into summer, you get that all too familiar itch.  The itch that says, "I need to get out on the water." Ice melts...
  7. Long Island Bonefishing Lodge Review

    Long Island Bonefishing Lodge Review
    When I was planning my latest bonefishing trip to Long Island (the one in The Bahamas), I came across the Long Island Bonefishing Lodge which offers “assisted DIY” bonefishing. Those who know me know that I’m a bit of a contrarian and this is a brand new concept in the world of fishing lodges, and probably the first change to the business model in 50 years. Naturally, I set aside a day to check it out.
