Troutbitten Featured in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette

on
March 12, 2018

My friend, Steve, texted me yesterday to ask if I knew that my name was in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette sports section. Since my mediocre Little League baseball career ended at twelve years old, I’d figured that my chances at making the sports section of any paper were shot. But to my surprise, there it was, both online and printed in the Sunday paper.

And I have to admit that it makes me smile. I grew up reading the PPG and still do. As a home grown western Pennsylvania boy, I follow my Steelers, Penguins and Pirates with devotion.

So thank you to John Hayes. He attended the 2018 Cabin Fever Expo, where I gave a presentation on the Mono Rig. Hayes does a good job of breaking down the concepts and the history of long lining in his article titled,  “Goodbye Fly Line | No drag, no mending in mono rig fly fishing.”

You can find read the full article here:

And if you are interested in having me present for your club, visit the presentations page here at Troubitten, where you’ll find more about four available presentations:

The Mono Rig
Nymphs: Tight Line vs Indicator
Fifty Fly Fishing Tips in Sixty Minutes
Old-School  vs Modern Streamers

 

Enjoy the day.

Congrats, that is a great post about mono rigs. I thought it was one of the most insightful pieces I’ve read in a long time when it comes to fly fishing.

Hi. I'm a father of two young boys, a husband, author, fly fishing guide and a musician. I fish for wild brown trout in the cool limestone waters of Central Pennsylvania year round. This is my home, and I love it. Friends. Family. And the river.
