    Fly Fishing at Noccalula Falls

    I love to fly fish and I am always looking for opportunities to fish in my home state of Alabama. Most of the fishing opportunities are for warm water species in the rivers, creeks, and lakes around the state and there are a lot of opportunities from fishing the native red eye bass in many of the small creeks across the state, large mouth, and spot bass, small mouth bass, white bass and stripe bass in many rivers and lakes in the state.

    My Fishing Evolution: Bigger Isn’t Always Better

    My hometown is a place that I affectionately refer to as a drinking town with a fishing problem: Sebastian,Florida. The gateway to the tropics. I grew up on the Sebastian Rive...gators,mullet, manatees, and tarpon in my backyard. I took it for granted then,but I have an entirely new appreciation for it now.
