Got a big summer of fly fishing planned? The Fishpond Tundra Tech Pack is what you need. It can be worn as a backpack or chest pack and is lightweight and very breathable. It comes with plenty of storage for all your flies and gear, but won’t weight you down while you are on the water.

Yeti Coolers. It doesn’t get any better than these. No other cooler can match the performance of Yeti. Keep ice cooler for longer and use a more durable cooler. They are serious coolers for serious fisherman.

Fall Fishing Spots
Fall is here and that means cooler temps..which also usually means good fishing. The leaves will also be changing color soon and the mood will be just right for getting out on the water. Fall fishing is also nice because there tends to be less fishing pressure. Summer vacations are over, the kids are back in school, and football season begins. All of this is good news for the serious angler. Here are some top locations to enjoy fall fishing:
1. Cave Run Lake, KY 2. Chattanooga, TN 3. Coeur D Alene, ID 4. The Adirondacks in NY

Places to Catch Big Redfish
Redfish, also called Red Drum or Spot Tails, are a fun species of fish to catch. They can be pretty large and put up a solid battle against the angler. They also make for good eating. My favorite way to prepare fresh redfish is by frying them after a big catch. Redfish are usually found in shallow saltwater in bays, lagoons, inlets, and marshes. An ideal time to fish for them is when the tide is coming in. Below is a list of the top places in the U.S. to fish for reds.
We can hook you up with guides in any of these places. There are other great spots throughout the Southeast and Texas as well. Louisiana seems to produce some of the biggest reds you can find. If you can, we recommend hitting the bayou for your next redfish trip.
1. Charleston, SC
2. Rockport, TX
3. Destin, FL
4. Venice, LA
5. St Simmons Island, GA

Aspen is one of our favorite places on earth in the summer (and not so bad in the winter either). It is a great vacation destination for all types of people. Whether you are a family looking for a cool summer getaway and some fishing or an avid angler looking to fly fish hard for several days or weeks, Aspen has something for you. The Roaring Fork River and Frying Pan River are Two world class rivers near Aspen and are full of great fly fishing. The rivers are home to trophy Rainbow Trout and brown trout. You can also catch some nice brook trout and whitefish. The best way to experience is to hire one of the many great Aspen fly fishing guides to take you to the best spots on these rivers and help you improve your technique.
Aspen is fairly easy to get to now with its own airport that is served by United and frontier airlines. You can also fly into Denver as the drive is only about 2 hours. The temperature in the summer is typically highs in the upper 70′s with lows in the 40′s at night. Ideally for some good fishing in the day and relaxing at night.
Aspen has other cool things to do while you are not fishing. It has a great downtown with summer festivals, restaurants, and great hotels. Escape to the mountains of Aspen this summer and you will not be disappointed.

How long will it take for Andy Thomossan to get over what happened last week? According to JDNews.com, Mr. Thomossan caught a record 882 lb Blue Marlin off the coast of North Carolina in the 52nd annual Big Rock Blue Marlin Fishing Tournament. What should have been the best day off his life, however, quickly became one of the most painful. A crew member of The Citation, the winning boat, apparently did not have the required NC Fishing License. This license only costs $15 per year. Officials of the tournament disqualified the catch resulting in loss of the record as well as the financial prize.
Thomossan expressed his frustration to a local reporter, “We didn’t do anything wrong. But one of our people did. He failed to get a fishing license, but we didn’t know it. He told us he had it. He didn’t. So you take a man for his word, you know? I can’t do anything.”
Wow, you can’t help but to feel terrible for this guy. $900k taken away because of a for-hire crew member who lied to him. That hurts. I’ve heard that the officials are reviewing the ordeal again. Lets hope they give Mr. Thomossan a break.

New Orleans, LA – A popular fishing website, a local New Orleans fishing charter business, and students from MIT collaborated this weekend to help document the impact of the recent BP oil spill. It is an example of how volunteers are joining together to do their part in the wake of the disastrous spill. Jeffery Warren, a 26-year-old graduate student at MIT, has been trying to monitor the effects of the oil slick using makeshift weather balloons and cameras. With his setup, Jeffery can take photos with up to 1000 times better resolution than satellites that are used by authorities monitoring the spill. The idea is that this data can then be used as evidence for future litigation and other legal matters. Jeffery needed to get out in the waters of the Gulf to capture useful photos but does not own a boat. That is when he contacted FishingGuidesWorld.com, a leading website that connects people with the top fishing guides in local areas. FishingGuidesWorld was able to quickly communicate with all of its guides in the Gulf Coast to see if they’d be willing to use one of their boats to take Jeffery and his team out on the water. One guide in the network, James Smith, immediately responded and offered to help. Mr. Smith is a licensed fishing guide and owner of Uptown Angler, a New Orleans-based fishing outfitter. Mr. Smith offered to take the MIT team out in his fishing boat and ran the waters from Venice to the Chandeleur Islands. They were able to get a close view of the Oil Slick’s progress and capture various photos of the area. The team from MIT hopes to continue to capture photos of this slick and help document the oil spill at a detail level. This is one of many ways in which local citizens are banding together to help in the aftermath of the oil spill.
