New Hotness! My new Galvan Torque 5 in clear just arrived. I wish I could come home to a new one of these every week. #galvanflyreels #galvantorque #newhotness #flyfishing #flyreels
Backcountry dry fly heaven! The #galvantorque got a workout the last couple of days, as did I. #sightfishing101
Taking a moment to appreciate one of my favorite light sabers. :) I don't get to fish for trout as much as I'd like in Florida but I have a few out-of-town trips I'm excited about for this year! I love casting this bad boy. @bluehalogear 5wt glass rod with a @galvanflyreels T-5. 😍#flyfishing #galvanreels #galvantorque #bluehalogear #bluehalorods

1 of 4 I caught this evening at one of the lakes in my "hood". I haven't been able to fish at the coast so I thought I'd get in some practice casting and work this crease fly through it's paces. Had a blast. It was bigger than it looks!! #rememberihavechunkyhands  #sageflyrods #galvantorque #flytying #creasefly

He introduced me to surf fishing over half a century ago. When he passed not so long ago, I purchased this amazingly beautiful violet art piece in his memory and strolled down to the sand. Dad, my Galvan family, and Mother Ocean, thank you for making dreams come true πŸ€—

Facing into a stunning sunset, we started our trip with a flurry of grabs then after a lull we'd hammer another group of willing biters. And so the night went, FUN! Then it happened. About mid-trip, the H2 got rocked hard, then I do everything I can to grip the cold wet slippery fly line under a seriously heavy load. Thump-thump-thump, the tug-of-war rages on steering it away from the jagged obstacle course, and finally it is within sight. Dave reaches way out and in one swoosh, he scoops it up. We both stare into the net in absolute awe. Perfect in every way, not a single mark on her, we snapped a couple, then quickly released her back into the ocean, under an overhead full moon. Decades old, much too precious to kill, she rocketed away healthy.πŸŽ£πŸ‘πŸ‘ŠπŸ’₯πŸ€—

DARK WET BITING
.
From the first chuck, it was fast and furious on straight calicos, most of the grabs on crashdown. BOING! SMASH! GRAB! Easy couple dozen later, still couldn't get past to the bigguns that live there so I left 'em biting. Went looking for a kicker but even more of that same nice grade in a blowing shower.

Back in May
last time here
Months in the salt
time to switch gear

Two hour trip
geez it was tough
Spooked a couple
going to be rough

Clock winding down
found the right one
Mugging some weeds
Setting low sun

A tipping eat
sure was fun 
Shot downstream
a screaming run

Nice to have options
Salt or fresh tuggers
Downtown L.A.
carp in the gutters

Another sweet release, as Bruce does the honors........πŸŸπŸ˜€πŸ€™πŸ™ŒπŸŒ΄ . . #socalflatsfishing  #galvanflyreels  #galvanforlife  #galvantorque  #galvangrip  #orvisflyfishing  #orvisflyrods  #helios3  #helios2  #smithoptics  #flatsgrandslam  #bonefishonthefly  #permitonthefly  #tarpononthefly  #belizeflyfishing  #sundownerguideservice  #sundownerlodgetarpon 
......off in the distance we spy another major flock of dive bombing pelicans so Bruce fires up the big black Suzuki and we are off! We cover the gap and pole onto the flat just as I get this crazy idea to try stalking a flats tarpon on foot. Knee deep, Blake and I tiptoe our way along the edge and see a pair of beauties coming straight at us. One veers off, just as the fly touches down while the other turns and rockets forward, opening that big wide mouth and the fly DISAPPEARS! ......πŸŸπŸ˜€πŸ€™πŸ™ŒπŸŒ΄

Following a quick fray-removing retie, the panga crept back into position and then some knucklehead fires a wayward cast INTO the mangroves and the fly is now hung SOLID. At Bruce's direction, I grab my back up rod and flick a cast with maybe ten feet of line out and get absolutely CRUSHED by a another larger tarpon!  INSANE! That fish ended up being the largest of the day and was a wonderful test of the Orvis H2 ten weight and Galvan Grip's stopping and pulling power.πŸŸπŸ˜€πŸ€™πŸ™ŒπŸŒ΄

.....and if your timing was right you got hammered within seconds of your fly hitting the water. Such great species, tarpon are SO much fun, and definitely have a way of making one's day a whole lot better.......πŸŸπŸ˜€πŸ€™πŸ™ŒπŸŒ΄

........a  tasty lunchtime refueling combined with a hopeful normalizing wind shift, and we were soon skipping towards a lush palm-covered section that upon arrival, showed tremendous signs of life. The four-stroke coming to rest, we glided then poled into position as we observed, pods of rolling tarpon and foaming schools of jack crevalle as they fed aggressively on tiny baitfish.......πŸŸπŸ˜€πŸ€™πŸ™ŒπŸŒ΄
