Hooking Up! Poon Fever with the Mangrove Coast

Waking up and hitting the beach every morning with my setter is some- thing I know is really special. I see the Caribbean from my porch, and often see tarpon rolling from the nearby dock. I am immersed in the fly fishing guide community in San Pedro. I have a...

Rigging For The Salt by Ed Jaworowski

Experienced fresh water fly fishers venturing into the salt understandably have questions about leaders, connections, and knots. Although some big game species may require specialized rigging, striped bass, bluefish, bonito, false albacore, weakfish, redfish, snook and many other small to medium inshore species don’t call for anything terribly complicated.

The Evolution of the TFO Bluewater Series with Jake Jordan

It’s the early 2000s at TFO headquarters, and founder Rick Pope and Lefty Kreh are working on a new fly rod. At the time, TFO only had three rods in their lineup: the Professional Series and Signature Series – both moderate action rods, and a versatile, fast action rod -...

A Thousand and One Tails

White coral sand, warmed by the tropical water I was casting into, engulfed my toes with each step.  The water was calm and clear. My fly landed with a soft "Ploop" and settled to the bottom ahead of a shadow.  A few quick strips and I felt the tug.  I...


As a primarily freshwater angler I could not help but feel intimidated by the salt.  A world known only to me by images. Some printed others in my mind.  [caption id="attachment_137300" align="aligncenter" width="674"] Photo: Jon Lee[/caption] For me it was the mangroves. Poling down that ragged edge, hunting. I poured...

Winter Streamer Tactics for Big Browns

Winter fishing can test your patience. Between the frozen guides and numb fingers, it leaves much to be desired. The rewards however, far outweigh the discomfort and the monotonous casting that comes with the winter season. During this time of the year, I find it easier to convince a big...
