Two Gates and a Gravel Road Pt. 2

This is the second post in a two-part series about an incredible trip my grandfather and I took to western Maine for conservation and fishing earlier in August. If you haven’t read the first part, give it a quick look before returning to this post. In case you forgot what happened during the beginning ofContinue reading “Two Gates and a Gravel Road Pt. 2”

Two Gates and a Gravel Road (Part One)

I originally planned to write this post about preparing for a trip. Then I got lazy, and the trip I was preparing for came and went. Thanks to some careful preparations that I will likely share at a later date, this trip was perfect. When I say perfect, I truly mean it. Other than byContinue reading “Two Gates and a Gravel Road (Part One)”

Adventures in Teaching Fishing Pt. 2

Last fall, I wrote about the joys of teaching someone how to fly fish after helping my friend catch his first ever trout on a fly rod. Little did I know that I would spend the next summer taking kids out on fishing adventures to teach them the in’s-and-out’s of our wonderful, yet somewhat confusing,Continue reading “Adventures in Teaching Fishing Pt. 2”

A Lifetime of Passion

After many years of saving, I finally sent in the $900 check for my Maine out-of-state lifetime fishing license last week. This license means a lot to me, especially since it’s a lifelong commitment to the sport I love. While I was saving for the most expensive purchase I’ve made to date, I learned aContinue reading “A Lifetime of Passion”

After a Hiatus …

Last week was my first full week away from fishing in nearly two years (you could say it was a little bit of a shock to my system). You may have noticed the absence of a post on Monday-frankly, it was because I had nothing to write about. Being away at camp taught me twoContinue reading “After a Hiatus …”

Maine Fly Fishing Summer Showcase 2021

The first ever Maine Fly Fishing Summer Showcase is a wrap! What an amazing time it was checking out the 20+ vendors that made their way from all over Maine and beyond! It was amazing to see so many influential people from one of the greatest fly fishing states in the country all in oneContinue reading “Maine Fly Fishing Summer Showcase 2021”

Fish are in Hot Water (Literally)

As I’m writing this, I’ve sweat through just about every part of my shirt in the 100-degree heat. It’s no secret it’s been hot, and it isn’t just at my house; across the US, people have had to deal with well above-average temperatures this summer. Last year ranked as one of the hottest summers onContinue reading “Fish are in Hot Water (Literally)”

Pelican Catch 100 Kayak Review

When I first started looking for a fishing kayak, I wanted to go big or go home. Peddle drive, fish finder, and more storage than the trunk of a car were all necessities in my mind. But then I noticed the price. And the weight. Finally, the dismayed look on my parents’ faces convinced meContinue reading “Pelican Catch 100 Kayak Review”

A Little Love for Fallfish

In last week’s post, I expressed my appreciation for one of the Northeast’s most disliked fish species, the fallfish. Often regarded as an unworthy bycatch when fishing for trout, fallfish get little love. Thanks to their poor reputation, people have been lead to believe that they are hideous creatures that litter the depths of ourContinue reading “A Little Love for Fallfish”
