March Merkin Permit Tourney 2018

We are gearing up for the March Merkin next week. Looks like a big cold front is coming the night before the first day of fishing. I tied up some sweet flies and the skiff is ready. Alan and I got a nice permit in the Del Brown last July and hope to do as well or better in the MM.


Cuda Bowl Key West



I fished the Cuda Bowl this year with Jay Decker and his son Kai.

Jay got a scoring fish on fly the first day and Kai killed it on the second day to win the Junior division .

I had a great time with good friends and hope to do it again next year.

BTT Symposium Tarpon Panel

I was at the Bonefish Tarpon Trust symposium last weekend in Weston , Florida with my good friend and Client Jay Decker from Patagonia.  We set up a small booth and talked about the cool new line.

I saw lots of friends from the fly angling world and made some new ones too.  I sat in on the Permit and Tarpon panel discussions and got some new perspectives on these fish.

A lot of time, money, and love is going into protecting tarpon, permit, and bonefish for now and the future.
