I’ve been thinking about this past February. It seems like it was colder and wetter than usual, but what really surprised me was how much wind we had. Now I’m wondering if that portends a more unsettled spring. Maybe I’m more apprehensive than usual because just the regular unsettled weather of March can present enough fly fishing challenges for me.
What is a mentor program? A mentor program is a voluntary merging of experience with inexperience. New anglers could apply for assistance in any area of fly fishing needed. Experienced club members could agree to serve as mentors and share the skills and knowledge they possess.
I have always been a keep it simple kind of guy, so it should be no surprise that there are only four fly patterns in my fly box during summertime when Redfish are tailing in the Lowcountry high marsh grass. Each has its own special purpose. I will start with my #1 pick and most productive overall.
