Warmer Pastures

Getting ready for another trip to the Bahamas with two friends.  Making lists and checking them 10 times.  Scouring GoogleEarth.  Tying flies, leaders and all that goes with it.  But my mind keeps going back to last year and some awesome places I was able to get into on my inflatable paddleboard that were previously inaccessible due to muddy, mucky bottoms or were across channels too deep to wade.

Here's a short basic edit from one afternoon:

And another quickie clip of a game I played, trying to see how close I could get to the fish and what they'd do once they saw me on the board.

Won't be long.

Bear Hunter

My bud Gus (left) with his cousin Jack and Gus' first ever bear.......a 310# Bruin shot opening morning in Pennsylvania.  Their camp is over the next hill from ours so when the "bear down" call came in it only took us minutes until we had a wheeler and a truckload of guys heading up there to give him a hand.   The whole thing seemed a bit surreal at first and there were a lotta "holy shits" exchanged as we walked up to the bruin.  I realize black bears can get bigger in this state, but let me tell you this thing was big enough and impressive as hell up close.  The glazed look on Gus' face as he retold the events was perhaps the best part of it all.

Needless to say, there was quite a party at camp that night!
