Saltwater Fly Fishing with Captain Paul Dixon

By |August 20th, 2012|

I have had the pleasure of knowing Paul since I moved to Long Island over 8 years ago. He still blows me away today every time we fish together. He’s that guide that always seems to know the right tide, the right area and when to be there. Its almost like he has fish DNA […]

Trout Legend Circuit Stops in Central NY

By |May 14th, 2012|

I grew up in a small town in central NY outside of Syracuse. Other than College Basketball and lake affect snow, there isn’t much else people know about that area. I feel somewhat fortunate because I was able to explore the area growing up and it turns out that the entire area has incredible fishing. […]

Rise Fishing Co. On a DIY trip to Turks and Caicos

By |March 6th, 2012|

One look a a satellite view of Providenciales Turks and Caicos and you
can’t help but practically lose your mind thinking about the endless
possibilities of do it yourself bonefish opportunities. Yes, you can

Winter fishing on Salmon River, NY

By |January 13th, 2012|

I’m sure most people have either fished or heard of the Salmon River in Pulaski, NY. If you have, then you have heard about the crowds, “the combat” fishing, the weather, and all of the problems that the river has. For those reasons, the Salmon River gets a bad rap? What gets lost in all […]

It just made sense. Maybe we are a little bias but in our backyard, perhaps the largest migrations of fish pass by Montauk Point, creating some of the largest blitzes you can imagine.
