From tailwater to saltwater in two weekends
Things are getting pretty busy here around the Flyfishmagazine.com corporate compound. This coming weekend Paisley, Jay Moore, and I are helping host a corporate fly fishing outing on the banks of the Watauga River tailwater in Tennessee. The following weekend we (not including Jay and Paisley) jet off to Key West, Florida for an anniversary celebration with my better half.
I knew that I married well when my lovely spouse insisted that I spend at least one day of our anniversary trip fly fishing. Once I made sure that she truly meant what she said and it wasn't one of those "yes means no" conversations the fairer sex is known for, I quickly took her up on it and made my reservations with Captain Justin Rea of Sting Rea Charters. Fly fishing the flats of the lower keys will be a new challenge for me since I am a guy who is much more at home casting on small rivers and streams for trout. Wish me luck!
