Fridays on the Fly | An Ode to the Bronzeback

Friday Instantly | Bronze Back Elm

  Born and breed under the ruthless climate. In the hot summer, the cold winter, heavy rain and drought; the endless violent attack will kill him or make him stronger. From the beginning, he adapted to this environment and led his fierceness and tenacity. He challenges his strength and courage every day. Striped cheeks, olive -colored and bronze wars with decorative spotted camouflage, pretending to be a skilled and keen predator.

  Participating in the battle, this fierce creature is not equal. Along with the special forces tied in the air, they will test the true courage of those brave people in order to get involved in his unique courage. If the opponent is worthwhile and unswerving, they may join the realm of people who admire his fashion, muscles and charming piscists, and deserve the highest respect.

  The MicroPterus Dolomieu is shrouded in the thoughts of the fishermen, the greatest and most well -known river in the southeast, seeking truly vibrant and enrichment of quarry. The Small Emouth Bass has successfully spread to the United States, and discovered it east of Abbarachia before the civil war. The solidity of this species allows it to occupy various habitats, and the range of many other fish in the southeast is limited.


  The small mouth is really carefully designed as an effective and exquisite predator, and is an opportunity to hunter. As the hot environment fades in this year, our small mouth regulates its metabolism needs, and has a variety of feed species in our river system. Crayfish, scaffolding, bait, Hell Grassis, cicada and tofu are just samples for cooking every day. Small mouths are often found in dark wall racks, Logjams or bottom -cut banks seeking refuge, they will ambush their prey, and find in water similar to wild brown catfish. This exquisite fish lives in the shallow beach, rocks and complicated areas of rocks.

  The small mouth is the best quality of the dynamic game fish of the fly shovel on the goal of hiking or through the ship. During the six to seven months of activities, the diversity of flies and methods we were pursuing was very wide. The behavior of sinking lines and multi -hook flies to the surface and imitation of this fish determines our targeted way. The bronze shoulders and wide olive sides of small mouths are often amazing with amazing power and beliefs. It uses river and natural vitality to test the perseverance of the most experienced fisheries.

  Bleary’s eyes and considerable motivation. I gave up the comfort of the hammock. The wing was the beauty of the James River, and the quiet morning waters. I slowly entered the depths of my waist and seduced the position of my fish in the late summer trend. My sense of awakening shows me that Popper will be a supplement to my toes, which is the buzz of my awakening feeling. On the long and tight cycle of my online, the worm landed from the river bank and subtly repaired my flies. When I discern my nose and nose, it will drift tail water, and the insects disappear.

  Smiling swing cakeLarge sets make the line full of attractiveness, while the fish beating and rolling, showing his strength and beauty. He buried his head and the battle began. Left, right, tearing line, test resistance and my spart limit, this fish is a force that cannot be ignored. After many foam running and jumping, the familiar sand skin of the lower lip was put on hold calmly under my right thumb. When he rest peacefully in the water and enhances his strength, this tired and trusted fish to the eyes of my scarlet eyes. The quiet admiration is always linked to our world, and it is full of my dream of the wild and wild fish. When I watched him swim, keep life satisfaction, and at the same time enjoy its existence and awe.

Fridays on the Fly: Lowcountry Redfish 101

Friday instant: Lowcountry Redfish 101

  When the red fish involved in fishing, there is actually no special "how" it can automatically attract your fish.

  According to my experience, you have to come here to be immersed in the world of fishing in the world. You also need to accept such a fact, that is, the fishing god may not bring you the best conditions. That’s why I finally moved here. There is no attractiveness in other areas, and fishing is a reward.

  I am not saying that this is a situation of love/hatred, but a kind of love/love/hate/love scene. This is no different from other saline destinations. There is a trendy trend (huge) is the standard tropical weather, and there are a lot of water, which makes all different types of challenges challenge. When you hold that kind of meat scales, they will become more sweet. Ginger that loves very much.

  Now, I have given you an exemptional statement, that is, red fish is not easy to capture them. The best suggestion I can provide is to go out and wet your feet.

  If I want to choose a good time to check the whole thing, it will be 3 or 4 days after the new month or full moon. The tide will be high enough to get water on the higher Subadin grass flat shoes, so that the small animals we desire (SHEEPSHEAD, and other goals) we desire.

  If you do not have a boat, this formula is more important. These apartments are hard ground, allowing you to get involved in a large number of areas to find red suspension flags. I let the fish move 10 feet from bad actors. I have been cast on the nose of the fish scared by Halloween, but in this case, it is easy to catch them.

  After the fishingman kept it there to see what would happen, I had seen the red fly from the grass. I believe that this part can be left with nearly red fish, you can dream of it. I really didn’t say anything.

  The fish I caught in the tide recently was a bit strange. The fish is in the tail, but it is not very confident. He will follow, disappear … tail, disappear. Therefore, I put it on the right side of the position I saw last time.

  I peeled off the crab pattern, which was very short and slow, hoping to make some movements, but also kept the flies "in the area" for a longer time. After dragging it to the bottom of the mud about 10 feet, I hit the grass, which was never good.

  I had to actively strip the flying from the grass, and then I couldn’t believe that we did not win the winner in this case. I went away and cast it again. If there was no fish on the abandoned flies I died, damn it.

  Therefore, in this case, I did it right, but when I gave up, the fish yielded. I don’t think I should catch this fish, but in the NED of the day, it is my fish and five cups and cold beer wells.

  This month’s Instagram takes over the fishermen, photographers and outdoor Kyle Laferriere. Kyle (Kyle) adopted a slightly different way. He used his photos to tell a story, telling how he was immersed in the world of flying fishing and subsequent friendship. read!

  It is what I have done with my wife and my wife on Thursday in the past. We are always excited about the newcomers, but when a person appears and says he likes fishing, I am really excited.

  Fishing James River Zach Madisonhcv Next

  Zach and his fiance just moved out of Colorado for the past three years, where he was used as a fly fishing guide. I quickly bombed him and told him about SHAD fishing and the situation where it was about to move forward. I asked him if he wanted to fish within two days, tell him where I was going, and I wanted to take pictures for him. I explained that it would be cold, maybe it was painful, but we would catch fish. To my surprise, he appeared, and our friendship began.

  Fishing is always what I admire from a distance. I hope that one day I can be good at here, and dream of becoming an old man, teaching my grandson how to cast a flying rod. I have a few friends to do this, but for some reason, I am satisfied with the rotating stick.

  Next step

  When @zjmadison talked about a place located on the mountain, a dirt road took you to the wide steam of the bus, and I was a little doubtful, but I got on the car and went to the Radian River. Zach prepared a flying pole for me and was willing to teach me how he. I remember: "Well, if we don’t catch any fish … at least we can meet in the woods and outside."

  In our trip to the Radian River, I soon doubted my early doubt. The toes of my toes in the cold water were humble, and I looked at @zjmadison to create art with a flying rod. This is something I have never seen before. You can say that I am fascinated. The sun began to stare at the secluded forest around us, everything started.

  Next step

  The perfectly placed in front of the small waterfall is our first temptation of Brook. The explosion of water and fish hooks. Watching Zach’s fight is like watching eight -year -old children on Christmas morning. You can see the joy written on his face. He pulled this spots of fish to the water and said, "I have cured."

  I was a little confused about his remarks, but soon I remembered that he was fishing 6 days a week in the previous life of Colorado, 8 hours a day. This lifestyle is rooted in him. These experiences were deeply missed. Later that night, under the bonfire party, I asked him why he left a guide in exchange for the work behind the table. He answered softly: "Life is more than fishing. I can’t do it forever, I want to settle down and start a new life. Now I fish with you in Risan."

  When my wife told me that when she went to a girl to go to the beach on weekends with the fiance of @zjmadison, I soon knew what this meant about my weekend. I have to call Zach.Screen-Shot-2016-09-19-A9-21-23-AMWe want to get 2 permits of the 4 licenses. We missed a few minutes of permits, but knowing a place near Moxi Creek, we can walk around in the farmland, be entangled by cows, and finally enter the water. He said, "But please rest assured that we still catch fish." After our first trip on the Rapidan River, I soon learned not to doubt his thoughts and him. Zac is right again. We were entangled by cattle when we were bulling from the Spring Fed Creek in the Spring Fede. Wake up the call is worth it.

  In the summer, in the case of catfish fishing, we started a fishing team of Wednesday night. We flew around the James River, and the James River went straight to the Richmn in Virginia, hoping to find a small mouth.

  The next step of the James River Small Mouth Fisherman

  We all succeeded, Zach still caught the biggest fish, but I learned that this is not always about fishing. My memories I shared with a friend who I only know 6 months and the summer of 2016 will emerge in my mind. @zjmadison not only promoted me to capture better fish, but he promoted me to become a better person. We shared the struggle and joy in daily life in water and water.

  Through the camera lens and flying rod, I do something outside to view and experience the beauty of nature, but I also do these things to experience friendship, and create lasting memories, which passed to my children and their children a day.
