Topics I've Started

Tragedy reported in Belize

27 June 2019 - 08:45 AM

I posted something on the fly fishing board that anyone that travels south of the border to fish may want to read about... I posted it there to get the greatest distribution since this board goes very quiet periodically... 

 

Essentially a US fly fishing angler and his guide were shot to death while on the water fishing... Not very much detail at present but an item to keep track of... Wish it weren't so...

spring time - Everglades backcountry, Flamingo to Chokoloskee

Typical guide lament... spring-time has you praying for a day off... so this report covers about a six week period ending just a day or two ago.

 

At any rate I was lucky enough to fish forum member, Barbless Bob (aka Bob Elliott) a few weeks ago and that's the start of a report that probably has more spin than fly fishing... At any rate Bob did get a nice 60lb tarpon on a 10wt up a small, nameless river in the backcountry... A sixty pound tarpon in a small river is a handful.....

 

For all the particulars (and a few photos) ....
