Dream Global, Fish LOCAL

The grass is always greener on the other side... or is it? Often we are so busy planning our next trip out of state or out of the country to some exotic location we overlook the riches of our own backyard.

In the midwest this is particularly true of the warm water fishing opportunities that abound right out our backdoors. Often give short shrift, largemouth and smallmouth bass, pike, muskie, walleye, panfish, wipers, stripers, carp, gar, freshwater drum all provide good sport and ample distraction with a fly rod.

Do yourself a favor. Next time you think about traveling half way around the world for another 8" trout, check out that farm pond or tributary river right out your back door. You just might be surprised to like what you find.

Dog friend and Spey Casting guru Will Turek set down the two-hander long enough to float Ohio's Little Beaver Creek. In spite of the high water, this big river smallie, with a number of smaller fish, was caught during the day's outing.
