Rhode Island 2008

Rhode Island 2008

Introduction Most fisherman probably have a certain fish species they want to catch that seems to be out of reach because of various reasons.A species that was on my wish list was the Striped bass.I had red many books about the subject and roamed forums about this fish species for information.Locations like Martha’s Vineyard, Montauk, Rhode Island and Massechussets came to mind. The plan I did not have a plan to pursue my dream untill I came into contact with…

The first time I was in spring in SW Florida due to circumstances.Four weeks in Collier county in April fishing the beaches and inlandlakes.

October 7th. As usual the wind was blowing full force on the beach making flyfishing not an option. I did try to fish the rocks but after a while I figured I could better try the breachway and pond. I waded out far into the pond and fished the channel with a pink snakefly. As the wind was also blowing across the pond I switch to a sinking line to make at least a decent length cast into the wind. When I reached the first…

Another visit to SW Florida this year.Three weeks on the beaches of Collier and Lee county delivered quite a few snook along with the usual ladyfish and spanish mackerel.The weather was still quite hot so I guess I was a bit too early for the fall migration.No Tarpons sighted from the beach but quite a few sharks at certain places.

I roamed the beach at Naples FL for three weeks and tossed flies atthe tricky beach Snook, sight fishing at its best.Besides the Snook I had some run ins with Spanish mackerel, Snappersand Ladyfish.I was pleasantly surprised that I caught a Pompano on the fly, for me it was like catching a mini Permit.The biggest surprise was to see huge Tarpon in the inlet gobbling upthe mullet.I did toss a larger fly at the passing Snook with my eight weight hopingto…
