Greetings from sunny North Carolina:
After two trips to Florida, one to work at the Miami Boat Show (with a trip home to attend and teach fly casting at the CLFF Fly Casting Clinic) the other for my mother's birthday, along with another flight to San Francisco to work at the Pleasanton Fly Fishing Show, I was really happy to arrive home to coastal North Carolina. It has been a cold, snow filled, and rainy winter with little fishing for me since returning home from Guatemala on January 15th.
I am now home and the weather is beautiful today with bright sunshine and high temperature in the 50's. While I was gone I received several fishing reports with a few pictures, My friend, Captain Joe Shute (www.captjoes.com/) was fly fishing for redfish on the Cape Lookout Shoal on my mother's birthday (February 23), below are a couple of pictures from Captain Joe, wish I was there.
Now that I am home in my office for a week or so I am working on booking up my fishing charters for the rest of 2010, and filling in the folks who are planning to fish with me in Guatemala and the Galapagos during 2011. First let me begin by listing my available Tarpon dates in the Florida Keys during April, May, and June of this year, the red fonts represent good night fly fishing tides: April: 26, 27, 28, 29, 30; May: 1, 2, 8, 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18, 29, 30, 31; June: 1, 2, 3, 15, 16. Please if you are planning to fish with me and have not yet confirmed your dates, do so now. I plan to be sold out before I leave for Pasadena, CA, to the Fly Fishing Show next Friday.
There is still room for one person who wishes to attend my Sailfish School as a student on March 29, 30, 31. Please let me know if you are interested. I will be flying to Alaska on my birthday, March 18, where I will spend the next day in Anchorage with friends. I will then fly to Fairbanks (more cold weather) to present a program to "The Midnight Sun Fly Fishers club on March 20. I then plan to be home between March 22 and March 27, when I will fly to Guatemala for a Sailfish School. After that I will be marlin fly fishing in the Galapagos from April 3rd to April 15, at which time I will arrive home and head to the Florida Keys on the next day.
I do still have quite a few open dates to fly fish for albies, giant redfish (drum) and many other species during September, October, and November of this year. If you would like to catch some of these:
Then you should contact me right away to reserve some prime dates with good tides. Oh and by the way I just heard that the fly fishing for sailfish in Guatemala is red hot right now, wish we were there. I look forward to sending out more fishing reports soon.
