Today I fished with long time clients of JRFFA. Herman and Gene. Its always a pleasure to get to spend the day with these two. Herman started riding bikes this past year which gave us plenty to talk about all day! We dodged the rain bullet at lunch, then got off the water again a little after 3 right before the lightening storm and massive rain swooped. That wasn't the only way these boys got lucky today...we ended up finding 5 rainbows of 20 inches...plus several more 17-18...it was nuts! here are a few of the pics from the day!

The past couple days I fished with my man Chris Dollar. He is pretty much considered all things food in Memphis and is a blast to fish with. I always get the skinny on all the restaurant scoop and pick his brain for food ideas! Anyways. Our bite was tuff the first day but ended up super strong. The yesterday Chris and Johnathon laid it to them. we smoked some super nice fish including this one!
I got the chance to fish with Doc again last week. We decided since we had a couple of days to take the drift boat up to the nor fork for something a little different...we put in a great day. The river was kind to us and we had a blast...something about fishing from a drift boat that is just good for the soul!
Its that time of year folks...not sure how much longer these dudes will be around but it certainly has been fun getting some different tugs. I took my man Ryan Mahoney and his pal out the other day and they whooped up on them pretty good, even mixed a few small carp into the grab bag!

last weekend I fished with Ragen and Dr. Albright...it was a brisk overcast day with midges all over the place...we went down to the lower river and did some good ole fashioned midge fishing...we crushed them...we cross eyed and sore lipped so many trout it was unreal...including these nice couple of browns!
Last week was a busy week on the Little Red, Spring break was happening and the perfect flow has kept lots of traffic on the river for us...but the flow has kept it nice and spread out...you can fish anywhere and have perfect flow! Michael and Jordan came down to fish with me and we had a great trip. Here is one of the fish from the day!
Last Week Teresa was in my boat with her hubs charlie doing a little fly fishing. They both did great and caught some awesome fish but certainly Teresa stole the show catching all of the nicer ones! isn't that the way its suppose to be though?
I know you guys have seen my buddy Will up on the blog before...Hes got some monster with me in Dry Run Creek over the years, and he went on the colorado trip last summer...We a week ago or so him and his pops slipped over for a little spring break fish...we hit up the Norfork in the drift boat and had a great day. We didn't see any monsters but we caught lots of fish and had a great time.

Sunday I took out Pat and Chandler for their first fly fishing experience. It was a chilly day but not awful. The boys caught on super fast and we were whacking fish in no time. It turned out to be an incredible day with gobs of fish to the boat! Here is a thumper that Chandler caught!
