CHASING MONSTERS – REDZILLA AND BIG UGLY

It had been far too long. Yes, I had a fantastic trip to Loz Buzos, Panama and got some epic fishing in, but the marsh was still calling my name. I haven’t been this excited about a local trip in a long time, and the anticipation level was high as I made the drive...

Fall Float

  It’s been awhile since my Dad and I first floated the Stanislaus River, almost a full year. So, it was about time we did it again! It’s one of the more scenic rivers here in the Central Valley and to top it off there are a variety of species that inhabit the...
