Coastal Angler Magazine recently caught up with Corey Wheeler for the latest edition of Local Casting.
Fly Casting Accuracy would be the title of a fly casting class that would bring in the fly fishers that understand what's important in catching fish.
Choosing the right fly reel is commonly considered to be the least difficult part of getting outfitted for fly fishing. Nonetheless, it is important.
Learning to flyfish can take days, weeks and maybe even months of preparation and practice. But once you are out on the water, what do you look for? You are basically thrusting yourself into an environment that is completely alien to humans. We rule the land, but fish rule the waters—the advantage is with them. However, nature and the fish we are seeking can provide us with some hints and clues that can help the angler be successful on the water.
1. Keep a journal. Success in Saltwater is being at the right place at the right time. The best way to increase your chances of being at the right place at the right time is to keep a record of your past successes and failures. If you found a school of reds feeding on a certain oyster bar an hour before low tide at first light for instance, then that same set of circumstances is likely to happen again in two weeks.
Coastal Angler Magazine recently caught up with Daniel Diez, a/k/a DJ Dan Decibel, who lives in Miami and fishes the backcountry waters of the Everglades and the crystal clear waters of Biscayne Bay in his kayak. Diez, a noted photographer and videographer sat down with us for a brief interview.
In the pre-dawn twilight it was difficult to see the fish, but they were there. Just barely perceptible was a little slick that just did not look right. “Get ready” the captain whispered, “they are going to pop up right in front of us.” Several anxious moments passed before the fins and tails of a couple dozen hundred pound tarpon broke the flat calm surface of the Gulf of Mexico.
Much has been written about the best bass lakes in the country and they all include one of the biggest and most diverse, Kentucky Lake. Spanning from Kentucky through the entire state of Tennessee, this lake has it all, from accessibility of ramps to tremendous fishing to small towns dotting the shorelines with charm and hospitality. It is truly an outdoorsman’s paradise and a great family retreat.
The two day competition was greeted by nearly calm conditions on the first day and it was only minutes after lines in that the first fish was released and tagged aboard the Kalex.
