Climate Change -- Most Impact on Fishing & Hunting
Outdoorsmen need an environment to do their thing, their Zen, their passion. The biggest threat is Climate Change. Can you afford not to act? Can you afford to let your passion go by the wayside? Act now - not later! Get involved. You won't need your fishing pole, fly rod or your gun, if the habitat your passion lives in is gone. Simple as that.
The politics of Climate Change is polarized. Common sense needs to rule. We have the technology to make rapid changes. Let's do it.

Rose River - Two Fish @ Twenty Inches
During late September the water level was low on the Rose River. Long leaders were your best friend. I used a 15' leader with a 6x tippet to cast to two large fish. I landed them both. It was a great hunting experience as I had to sneak around to the fish's backside and cast at an angle upstream. I only let the leader and tippet go over the trout so I wouldn't spook the big boy. It worked! The water was so clear that I could se the fish curl underneath my Mr. Rapidan and sip it from the surface. Bang, Bang two fish caught and released.
Everyone's Dream is a "TopWater Fantasy"
Well then...Here you go! Great footage and good build-up. Have to agree that this is everyone's dream. Fishing Top Water and lots of big tail slaps.

South River SLAB - Great Place to FishOne of the best places to fish is not to far from Richmond. The South River in Waynesboro, VA. It is one of the best examples of partnership among with Landowners, the local TU, fishermen, and Virginia DGIF. Here is a map of the special regulation area.
South River Special Regulation Area
There is also the delayed harvest area in downtown Waynesboro, VA. The South River Fly Shop has a great proposal to make the use of the delayed harvest area for Fly Fishing Only. What a great idea.
See the Proposal Here
This is what Tommy and Kevin are talking about when they say a destination fishery.
Clay Hardin caught this SLAB at the South River. What a beautiful fish!
I believe Clay caught this hold over on a streamer. This week I caught quite a few smaller bows and browns on a dry flies. Size 16 Parachute Adams as well as Caddis dry flies purchased from the South River Fly Shop. The infamous Golden Retriever worked for me as well. I caught a nice Brown using that fly pattern. All in all it was a great day. Can't say enough good things about the South River.

And Do it Right
Adventure Travel for fly fishing is definitely something to save up for. Especially if you are going all the way ... to Bolivia. Fishing for Golden Dorado and hell ... why not ski?!? That's what I would have done, yeah!

Not a Bad Second Attempt!I am just jealous. Yeah - Orvis' new video hub - The Tug is well ... pretty good. It's all creative, glossy and well organized. My favorite site is still Moldy Chum. Now that site has everything and more than just fly fishing. Anyone that is new to fly fishing will like The Tug as it spans destination fishing to how-to-do-everything pertaining to fly fishing. Take a look. You will like it.
