That's great! Need to get back down to Mass this year to chase them, all be up in Maine doing that as well in a while.

If I may gloat for a minute... A photographer friend of mine (David Cannon) took this picture of me and he made the cover of the latest Eastern Fly Fishing Magazine. Very cool!

Thanks Jonesy,

That's Dukes Creek in N Ga. There are monsters in that stream, and in that spot, they sit just below that plunge at times. It's a great stream.

Nice, Zack!

Not specifically, but what kind of water are you fishing for those? Tribs to the salt?

Very cool!

Not a picture but a 9 minute movie of our fishing in BC.

Even the defender is a star in it for a view seconds

That is amazing! It was posted over on Reddit Fly Fishing
https://www.reddit.com/r/flyfishing/...ve_been_shown/

Watched it like 3 time... the hooksets on the swing are worth watching alone
(3:48, 6:36, 8:30 for those who don't have time for the whole video...but you should watch it)


You are living the dream...
