Fly Fishing for Arapaima in Guyana

Does this look awesome or what?  I wonder if there are alligators or piranhas in that water ….. if the fish jumps in the canoe you’re sunk.  Little wonder the email this photo was attached to read:

Impulsive and adventurous?

Here is an opportunity for you.

This trip is scheduled for early March.
This is very short notice, but an incredibly unique destination.
Interested? Click the image for further details.


Thanks, Urban Angler.  If y’all make it back alive, I might take you up on that next year.

International Fly Fishing Film Festival snubs NYC in 2013?



Looks like you’ll have to get your fix of fish porn teasers and product promotions while you’re schmoozing at The Fly Fishing Show this year.  The festival has a whole new look, a new logo, and maybe new management.  And Manhattan, you are OFF the list.

Friday, January 25th, 6:30 pm at the Doubletree Hotel in Somerset, NJ.

Undying lifelong devotion

Fishing on chesil beach



I imagine this will be me in twenty years or so.

Watching flyfishing vids posted by my tumblr favs today, the coveting and craving came on suddenly, like a hot flash.  Must mean opening day is just around the corner.

At some point, addiction  undying lifelong devotion to this pursuit will be revealed in one’s wardrobe decisions.
