Louisiana Redfishing with the Holeman Brothers
The best fishing trips sometimes come when you least expect them. I recently heard from a friend about a place tucked away in the Louisiana marsh where the "hot" redfish action would make you glad it wasn't summer. This redfisherman's haven, called Hopedale, was not only home to HUGE redfish during these winter months, but also to a couple of die-hard fishing guides, Travis and Bryan "Bear" Holeman. AKA... The Holeman Brothers!
Fishing Cosmoledo with Frontier Fly Fishing
What do you do when you get a call from a couple of guys from South Africa who say they want to take you on an expedition to some of the most remote atolls in the Seychelles Island chain. You reply "when, where, yes please!"
Sabi Sabi Wildlife Reserve, South Africa
Last year we went on an extended expedition to the Indian Ocean to fish the untouched atolls of the southeastern-most Seychelles Islands. On our way to the Seychelles, we had stopped in Johannesburg South Africa to gather our gear and prepare for the next leg of our "journey". It was there that our friends and hosts, Dean Riphagen and Tom Lewin, owners of Frontier Fly Fishing, introduced us to Rob Wyndham who oversees the Game Preserve called Sabi Sabi.
Costa Del Mar photo shoot in the Dry Tortugas
A group of us had come to the Dry Tortugas to do a shoot for Costa del Mar on Wild Florida. Little did we know that we would find out that there are many ways to define the word "wild".
Good Friends and Fishing Memories
by Christian Goodpaster

As the Action-Craft skiff begins to come on plane across the greenish tinted water, I am thankful I have been blessed for another day of life. Today isn't just another day, today I'm fishing and filming with Jose Wejebe in the Florida Keys. Our quarry; fish and reflections of the past and present. A celebration of the "bro's!"


Plane is done and Flying!
After years of hard work and testing, the plane is finally done and has been put to the test. The goal was to build a plane that could fly far, fast, and heavy. It comes from a kit plane manufacturer known as Compair and you build it together with a company known as Composite Technologies. We built it from the ground up with exploration, filming and fishing in mind.
Remembering Jose
Sharing a few stories of how Jose touched the lives of others through his good will and love of the ocean and fishing.
Building A New Airplane III
Getting closer now, wings are done and in a separate area to be attached later. Landing gear is on and controls in. Now the plane gets painted before it goes to the avionics department where the instruments for navigation and engine functions get put into the panel.

NEW Shimano Thunnus Spinning Reel

Many of you have questions about Shimano’s new Thunnus spinning reel.  What’s different about it and what makes it better than the old one?   Simply stated it is BAD ASS... But for those of you that want the skinny, here are a few key differences and the spec sheet that I got from Shimano.   


Journey to the Galapagos
This year while shooting the shows, the crew and I departed on what would be a trip of a life time to the remote islands of the Galapagos. The Galapagos are an archipelago of volcanic islands situated near the equator about 1000Km off the coast of Ecuador. These geologically young islands are best known for their pristine natural environment and vast number of endemic species which led to the inception of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. The islands and their surrounding waters have been protected as a national park and marine sanctuary since the 1960s in an effort to maintain their pristine natural condition.

Field Testing New Fishing Tackle in Key West
Designing new fishing tackle can be an involved process and for many years Key West harbor has been the proving grounds to field test new gear on the many tarpon that come into the deep waters of the harbor while on their migratory route.
Catching A Tarpon While Testing New Fishing Tackle
Tarpon mass in large schools when they come into Key West harbor. The numbers, size, and the fighting ability of the tarpon make them the perfect focus group to see if the gear is up to handling the heavy loads and drags imposed on rods and reels.
