Sunburn Special

Fishing with the two-hander is never easy, but under these high skies and summer-like conditions it surely separates the men from the boys! I couldn't have been more proud of my guys today—first time swinging, tough conditions, and importantly—determination! Pictured is Tyler with a well...

Grabby

Conditions on the river are ideal for two-handed rod on the Mo'. The majority of fish have spawned and most are now in the process of fattening up on their way back to the lake. While we will certainly see a trickle of new fish...

Firsts

6 Degree Swing

Wow, 6 degrees at the start of our day today. I must say, it was pretty chilly! Joining me for a couple days are Jen from Dun the Magazine and Kurt from A Tight Loop. Temperatures rebounded pretty quickly and it wasn't long before we...
