Pflueger Medalist Review

Return of the Mack: Pflueger Medalist

Most folks entertained by fly fishing and who have made a few trips around the block have owned a Pflueger Medalist.  Black, chrome and old is a fine combination.  It was my first fly fishing reel, and I’ve retired it to a shelf, right next to other important mementos like portraits of my little ...

Wet Dreams, Vol. 1

Obviously I spend a lot of time studying fishing.  At some point in every angler’s life he dreams about places he can’t afford to go to.  I have my list burned into my memory banks, hoping someday to begin checking them off.  Life is short, and today I came to the realization that I spend ove ...

30th Century Fisherman

Last month, two days after my own birthday, an invention that changed the way I fish turned 10 years old.  It has surely changed more than just the way we fish; it has changed life for us all.  In a world of technology where anything seems possible, it’s easy to overlook how something so widespr ...

Getting Salty

I’ve spent most of my fishing days meandering mountain streams and exploring rivers. It seems like I could spend a lifetime exploring new waters. About 5 years ago I made the decision to give up all other hobbies to only chase fish with a fly rod and I continue to find myself shedding obligation, ...

In 2014, I began a quest to catch a big brown trout (salmo trutta) in the small streams of the southern Appalachia.  Inspired by the catch of a lifetime, a quest and friendly challenge was started amongst friends to bag the king (or queen) of all "butter bellies" within a years time.  #SALMOSEARCH ...
