With the first blog post for the new website (and NFL playoff time), I figured I would think outside the box a bit. In the future you can expect to see fishing reports, fish pics, salt water destination info, maybe even some gear reviews. This isn’t one of those posts. I’ve been lucky over the years to travel to some pretty amazing places with a rod on my hand, and have also been lucky to catch few nice fish along the way.
This past season while on the road with the Fly Fishing Film Tour, I got to do something no fly fisher could have dreamt of. The boys and I had the opportunity to be the first people ever to cast a fly rod on the historic Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. During our private tour we learned the ins-and-outs of the stadium, and took as many pics as we could along the way.
There is no question that this will always be one of the most memorable things I’ve ever done with a fly rod in my hand…even if there were no tails involved.
