Within the context of tarpon fishing he writes about why our relationship to the natural world matters in a recent piece on Forbes. “The take of a tarpon is the most elemental, most thrilling thing in the sport of fly fishing, at least in my experience. The sudden heavy pull, the incredible displacement of water and time.”
  • As with any species, techniques change for stillwater or rivers, and bass are no exception. Winston Cundiff of All Water Guides offers great advice for catching river bass in this recent article.
