Wyoming trip in the books!

Posted: September 6, 2017 by Hellcat in Fish Reports



Now that the trip is over I can start to put up pictures and stories from our amazing Wyoming 2017 vacation! As my son grows older and becomes more interested in fishing….this website will start to feature more of his angling exploits, no doubt. But for now it’s still me and Pops on these trips trying to bang a trophy trout or two. This vacation featured TWO guided float trips on an incredible river experiencing above average flows and hosting larger than normal trout. Rainbow, cutthroat and browns were fooled and released. On several occasions. I will begin posting excerpts from the trip today. I’ll try to do a few a week until the movie is ready and up. As always thanks for all the support.

Spring mangrove fly fishing in Mexico

Here’s my dad a couple weeks ago fishing in the mangroves in Mexcio. He was using light fly gear and targeting over ten species of fish. Check out this little video we put together of his adventure! Retirement definitely does not suck for the Ol’ Sal Monid!



Coming soon: Photo show encore from Pops

Ling cod ceviche, anyone?

Posted: May 11, 2017 by Hellcat in Fish Reports



Here is a special treat from my good friend and all around angler, Nic Eldridge. He trotted almost five miles with a rod and a bag of gear in search of ling cod for his wife’s ceviche request. Helluva guy eh!
