Spring Runoff. Yuck. Its all part of the fly fishing life and today we'll interview Steve Joyce, founder and managing owner at Red's Fly Shop on HOW to deal with muddy water. We'll talk about the benefits of high runoff and how to alter your strategy.
Today we interview one of our long time guides and friends, Shan Sedgwick and talk about how to plan a grea trip. We swap some old stories and do a lot of joking around about days of old and reflect on some great trips... and a few bad ones.
Day 4 summarizes lots of action for the "Bonefish Virgin" on his first trip to the flats of Ascension Bay. At this point we had encountered Permit, Bonefish, Tarpon, Snook, Barracuda, and Jacks! Lots of variety on these flats. I love James' perspective on working with the guides and tips for new anglers on how to have a successful trip.
On this episode we chat with James St. Claire after Day 1 fishing in Ascension Bay. It was his first trip, making him a "Bonefish Virgin". He seals the deal on multiple Bonefish and shares advice from a first time flats angler.
