Montauk Point Fly Fishing Adventure

Montauk Fly Fishing

I just returned from an amazing trip to Long Island, New York. We spent the week fishing the area around Montauk Point. This area is as rugged and majestic as it looks. The fishing was unbelievable and I could not help but think that every day looked like a page from National Geographic. The Striped Bass, False Albacore, and Bluefish that we were targeting cooperated completely.
My first Striper in the salt with Captain Paul Dixon.

Montana fly fishing

I got back from Montana a week ago and the shop has been so busy I haven't taken time to post anything about the trip.  The first group I took to a ranch on the Upper Ruby.  Fishing was great, weather was great, ranch staff and guides were great, customers had fun...what more do you want?
