Can You Improve Your Cast? Ask the Magic 8 Ball

March 4, 2013
Author: Will Rice

What does my salt water future hold?  Better ask the Magic 8 Ball.

I’ve had my share of blown saltwater shots.  Some of the experiences are burned in my brain with more clarity than the fish that actually came to hand. The memories still sting:

-       Standing in water almost to my chest in Ascension Bay and trying to cast to a 25 lb permit within 60 ft… and failing miserably

-       Trying to punch a cast into a 20 mph headwind to reach a 6 lb bonefish tailing at the mouth of a creek in the Bahamas... and falling short

-       Falling apart in front of a half a dozen tarpon cruising a flat north of Ambergris Caye in Belize

Fly Fishing Trip Report: Ascension Bay

March 1, 2013
Author: Tucker Ladd

Simply put, when your wife asks you to plan a fly fishing trip to a flats fishing lodge, your response should be simple and concise: 'yes, when and where?'  In my case, the when was the first week of February, and the where was The Grand Slam Lodge.

Here's the quick break down: we spent days one and two getting our feet wet with some bonefish and snook.  Days three and four I was given the opportunity to chase permit while Whitney worked on her tan, and day five concluded our trip with an effort to catch anything that would chase a fly.

The Things They Carried: Guanaja, Honduras

February 26, 2013
Author: Will Rice

The island of Guanaja lies roughly 40 miles north of mainland Honduras and is situated 7 miles of  east of Roatan, its’ nearest Caribbean island neighbor.  I’m hopeful that I will get a shot or two at permit.  I haven’t had a lot of luck with permit in the past.  As it stands right now, the scoreboard reads:

Permit: 11

Will: 0

Not that I keep score or anything…
