SAVE Expo 23


The Southeast Adventure Vehicle Expo kicks off this morning in Starke, FL! I'll be attending tomorrow to cover Day 2 of the show and looking for ideas and products to make vehicle accessed backcountry fishing adventures easier, safer and more comfortable! Let me know what you'd like to see, or if there's anything I should take a closer look at, and I'll do my best to find it!

MCFF Fly Tying Night "Reversed Spider Fly" - 20 February 2023

Tonight's Mid-Coast Fly Fisher's Tying Meeting had Carl Sanders lead the group in a popular shrimp imitation used in the Pacific Northwest, the Reversed Spider Fly. Using mallard feathers, flash of your choice and chenille, this simple fly will challenge you with the reverse-palmered hackle and seemingly oversized proportions. The movement of this fly should drive any fish species wild!

The Fly Fishing Show Atlanta 2023

Tomorrow morning kicks off the first 3-day long The Fly Fishing Show in Atlanta! I'll be doing my typical show-floor coverage, so follow along, drop comments and ask questions (and, like the pictures, it really does help). I'll do my best to respond and find the answers. And, if you're at the show, stop me and say hello, it'd be great to meet you!

MCFF Fly Tying Night "Guides' Shrimp" - 16 Jan 2023

Capt. Frank Brownell led the group in tying a "Guides' Shrimp" fly at tonight's MCFF Tying Meeting! This quick tie results in an almost weedless imitation that utilizes dubbing-style wraps and Clouser Minnow techniques. Should produce well!

SpaceX Falcon Heavy Launch - 15 Jan 2023

Amazing view of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch tonight! This was the first time we've been able to see, from our vantage point, the two boosters separate and return to Canaveral, firing on the way back down to the pad. Such an incredible thing to witness, and a beautiful evening for it!


Booster Separation

Rocket and boosters all in view!

First Fish of 2023

First fish of 2023 and I couldn't be more pleased! Beautiful, dark green sunfish from a blackwater swamp in the state forest! I'll take this as a good omen for the new year, and look forward to more! Thanks, as always, for following along with me. '23 is the 10th year of The Suburban Angler, so I'm hoping to make it a good one!!
