I grew up fishing the native streams, lakes, and rivers at the eastern base of the Appalachian Mountains in Virginia and North Carolina chasing trout, small and large mouth bass, and anything else that would give a pull. I found a job working for a fly fishing shop and guide service in Lynchburg, VA where my addiction to fly fishing set hook. In 2005, College brought me south to the waters of the Gulf of Mexico where I avidly tuned my skills chasing a bigger tug on the end of the line from Louisiana to Florida. During College I spent my summers in the Outer Banks learning blue water chasing blue and white marlin, sailfish, dolphin, tuna, wahoo, and much more. In 2010 I graduated nursing school with four days a week free to explore my passion for the outdoors and the Gulf coast. My row boat wasn’t helping me embrace my passion for sight fishing so I let it go for a flats skiff upgrade. A decade later I find my self still dreaming of blue fringed tails waving from the shallows.

Post duck hunt poling in the tall grass! Sun high, water slick, and blue tails push it, push it real good!
Filmed a few from a trip with Michael and Francis Stanley. Tagging these fish is part of my effort in conservation. Tagging information helps us understand our fisheries health as well as maintain it. Hope you enjoy this short excerpt of a day on the water in Alabama!
