A Hunt To Be Thankful For

Thanksgiving week marks the beginning of duck season, turning the rivers of the Pee Dee region into a battle ground. This part of the season only lasts a week and is usually a hectic week on the river as hunters work to capitalize on the short pre season.

A Weekend Of Fishing

Grayson Highlands State Park, VA is a place that my wife, Shannon, and I have both enjoyed visiting before we met. Shannon has visited to hike with her family while I went on trips with the Boy Scouts. Shannon and I picked the first weekend of November to go together and we packed our bags to hike and camp in the area.

A Strong Start To Shrimping Season

It was late in the afternoon on opening day of shrimping season and two boats were coming home from a day of shrimping in McClellanville. The proud boats rode a little higher on the trailers that day because both had caught limits of shrimp to bring home for many good meals to come.

A Great Day Of Red Fishing

Sometimes we chase the impossible fish where a single bite can make the day and on other days, it is fun to enjoy catching quantities of fish.

My Greatest Catch

Triggered at about the same time as when the dogwoods bloom, many species of fish in South Carolina begin their spawning runs up the state’s intricate river systems.

The Irrational Angler, A Tale Of Wilson Creek

One of the thrills of fishing on a new river is that there is no historical bias to places where you caught trout before.

The New River Expedition: More Miles Of Uncertainty

Soon we reached the Pembroke, Virginia, and the canoes were pulled up onto the riverbank.

The New River Expedition: Miles Of Uncertainty

Our shuttle arrived, and Mike stepped out of the van to greet us. He is the owner of Mountain2Island Outfitters and has a shop in Radford Virginia, next to the New River.

The New River Expedition: Part Two

Sunday morning, Day 2- The boats were being loaded to continue the voyage down the New River. Duncan and I looked at the map and agreed that we would set the day’s goal to be setting camp just past the town of Fries, VA (Grayson County) before dusk.

The New River Expedition: Part One

This is part one of a four-part story of the eight-day, 210-mile New River Expedition. This journey was made possible by six men, five of whom call Dillon County home.
