Eastern PA’s Brodhead Creek To Fish Well This Weekend


By: Chris Shaffer Those who trout fish Pennsylvania often know many streams can be fished out a day or two after being stocked. Fortunately, that’s not the case with Brodhead Creek.

Chattooga River Stuffed with Rainbow Trout


By: Chris Shaffer Extreme drought has hit the Southeast this fall and while some precipitation has fallen between Thanksgiving and now streams and rivers remain much lower than historical averages.

Vibrant Wild Browns Available in New Mexico High Country


By: Chris Shaffer Two weeks ago we planned a trip to film in Northern New Mexico. And, while the trip was only to last three days Mother Nature didn’t seem to want us to fish.
