There are many different ways to catch a chub

CUM's Southern Adventure

The chub lovers headed south this November for a shot of salty surprise.  We caught a few fish and drank lot of Lone Star.  This was my first time fishing saltwater on the fly, and I would go back in a heartbeat.  I caught a flounder on a gurgler which I didn't think was possible. Redfish are just badass. I don't think there's a fish that has gotten my heart racing as fast as the big red I lost under my kayak (musky included).

Steelhead Skunk

A group of us headed to Michigan New Years day in a futile attempt to catch some winter steel.  Unfortunately no one hooked up, but we spent 3 days hiking around a stream, tying flies, and drinking whisky so all is good.
The trip started on a bumpy note, with our last member delayed from running off the road and hitting a support cable.

 Unfortunately all six of those bottles are now empty
 someone please make a rod with heated guides 

 After spending all day trying not to get wet/fall in the river, we willingly jumped right in.  
  We been through every kind of snow there is. Little bitty stingin' snow... and big ol' fat snow.
A beautiful place to not catch any fish
