South Arkansas bass fishing.

Kayak fly fishing isn't the same as fly fishing.  Loading, unloading, and paddling a 80lb kayak every day for most of the month can be exhausting  When that happens I go back to my old ways.  Here's a video of some fun bass fishing from last week.  Not complaining, I love kayak fly fishing...I just love fishing more.  Hope you enjoy...

Orvis "20 Days in September" contest (Days 7-12)

 Here are the next 6 days worth of fishing photos for the Orvis "20 Days in September" contest.  What I've enjoyed most is trying to be creative with my photography.  At this point it's not really about the fishing, it's about the fishing photography.  Added the captions for context.  Hope you enjoy...

Day 7
You have to earn a seat in the AC. We'll try again tomorrow


Day 8
Soaking up those froggy vibes.


Day 9
I wasn't planning on fishing the litterbug hatch but it was too thick to pass up. Got a sack full and a big one. 

Day 10
 Hiding out. I took an enormous risk fishing today. It's my wife's birthday!

Day 11
Pick it up...put it down...

Day 12
 "Mama, there goes that man again." - Ray Lewis

"WHO WE ARE

Fayettechill is a family first and a brand second. We pride ourselves in being more than just co-workers. To us, Fayettechill isn’t simply a collection of products; it is the lifestyle we’ve always aspired to have.

We didn’t start this company as pro athletes or experts in the industry. We are a group of storytelling 20-somethings that are organically drawn to the outdoors. We simply run this company as a showcase for the way we think life can be lived. We are a cumulation of dreamers and drifters who didn’t necessarily grow up. We have a thirst for adventure, a calling to the unknown, and comfort with community. We share a passion to create and tell a story that inspires ourselves and others.

WHAT WE MAKE

Fayettechill creates experience inspired apparel for outdoor enthusiasts around the world. The production of this apparel starts with a local community of manufacturing partners throughout Northwest Arkansas, United States, and overseas. Our mission is to create quality multifunctional products that allow our customers to fully engage in the lifestyle we present.

We are looking to create a product that maintains the high quality values of sustainability, art, and mastery. Through our initiatives to produce USA-made, organic, and recycled items, we have set the production of our products in a sustainable direction. On our clothing, we house more than just commercial graphics - we strive to showcase art. Fayettechill started with the notion that a product could serve as a canvas for a certain kind active art, one that has a purpose to inspire both the wearer and those seeing it. Every day we come to the Smokehouse with the goal to master the products we produce so that we can make them in a way that makes the lives of our customers easier, more comfortable, and consistently inspired."

Orvis "20 Days in September" contest (Days 1-6)

I'm always looking for a good excuse, not really, to go fly fishing.  Well, if you haven't heard Orvis has given everyone a great excuse to go fly fishing.  The "20 Days in September" contest is live, http://www.orvis.com/news/fly-fishing/day-one-2016-20-days-september-contest/, and I've been trying really hard to get as many of the 20 days in as I can.  The good news is you don't have to do all 20 to be eligible to win (see link above).  I'm not really doing it to win anything, I suspect most aren't, but rather the challenge of trying.  It's hard to find or make the time to fish 20 days out of the month...challenge accepted.  I've been out 6 days so far and here are the photos I submitted.
