I always get excited when I get a box in the mail from Chris Webber. His flies have been working really well for me and my clients. Rivers and Glenn in Savannah carries many of his patterns. Although I don’t make it downtown too often it really is nice to have a fly shop in Savannah.

April has for sure settled down and the fish are there to be caught ! That doesn’t mean we catch them all the time. Salt water fly fishing is a humbling little game we play, and at times down right maddening. The biggest mistake people make is lifting the rod to set the hook. I see it time and time again, and people get so bummed when they do it. Our entire angling life prior to salt water fly fishing one is taught to set the the hook by rearing back or lifting a rod to do so. This is not a easy habit to break and it can cost you fish, but if you do it don’t get bummed, it’s a learning experience and happens to all of us at one point or another. I always say, if salt water fly fishing were easy there wouldn’t be such a thing a bait fisherman. Water temps are creeping up and we should be seeing other species soon. I will keep ya posted. Take note of the flies hanging from the critters lips, all Chris Webber patterns that you can pick up at Rivers and Glenn fly shop in Savannah.
