Wish I'd been there to shake his hand!

Wish I'd been there to shake his hand! My buddy David, @simichiamodavide, pulled a trophy out of the Chattahoochee River yesterday while fishing with Chris Scalley from @river_through_atlanta. David's been working the river hard and all that time invested definitely paid off!! ・・・ After months of putting in hours on my beloved tail water, waking up at 5 am to fish before work, countless Chattahoochee baptisms, cut hands from tying streamers for big fish, bottles of Advil, packs of ice, and who knows how many flies sacrificed to river bottom I was lucky enough to hook into a 27 inch brown trout in a River through Atlanta boat with Chris Scalley! I feel so lucky to not only have caught a beautiful fish but to have done so in a boat with Chris, a master of the river, friend, and mentor.

Bank Lunch

We had an excellent lunch today on the banks of the Tomoka River!!! This would be an incredible spot for the kayaks, but the signs warning of alligators put us off the idea. Perhaps we need to think about getting a skiff for next year!!

What's your favorite inshore saltwater fly?

What's your favorite inshore saltwater fly? No fishing until I'm officially a Florida resident, so I'll work on filling a saltwater fly box in the mean time.
