Do you love big bluegill?
I moved to south florida around 7 years ago. I had always flyfished for trout and wanted to learn more about flyfishing for bass & panfish. One day I happened to see an article in Florida Sportsman magazine about a fresh water fishing guide who specialized in flyfishing. After going on my first guide trip with "Pete" and catching my first bass on a popper, I knew I was hooked. He changed me from being a novice flyfisherman to a highly skilled angler. We developed a great friendship over the years and as time went on he got out of the guide business due to his age and etc. For the last 5 years he and I would fish once a week. Recently, due to health reasons & taking a fall, I realized that I probably wont be able to go fishing with my buddy anymore like I used to. He always used to say " Whens the best time to go fishing" and he would respond "Whenever you can". What I've learned is don't take anything for granted. Anytime you can go fish with a buddy or friend, do it. Secondly, I need to pass on what was taught to me to someone else. I will miss fishing with my buddy tremendously. Someday, I hope to find another great buddy to fish with.
