    I'm Getting a New Fishing Buddy

    On the bright side, I'm getting a new fishing buddy. On the other hand, I don't seem to be able to find nearly as much fishing time nowadays as I did 5 years ago, when I only had 3 kids.

    I can hardly wait here in Virginia. Last year I caught my first warmwater fish (a redbreast sunfish) on March 12. With our relatively mild winter so far, can I do better this year?

    That reminds me of the scene in Crocodile Dundee where Sue is looking at the rifle shells in Mic's boat and asks if he was just fishing. He responds, "Well, Barramundi is a bloody big fish."

    Bow-and-Arrow Cast

    I've used the bow-and-arrow cast since before I started fly-fishing, shooting jigs through bank-side brush with my spinning rod. In tight places with no room for a backcast, it may be the only way to...

    Low Water Fishing

    I've seen in numerous places recently references to a lack of fishing success when the water in a river or stream gets low at this time of year. I understand that low water warms faster, and that can...
