This video is a bit older, but it’s appropriate right now as I’m currently working on a presentation for the Red Stick Fly Fishers for their upcoming Red Stick Day Fly Fishing Festival that is taking place Saturday March 3rd at Perkins Road Park. I’m going to be talking about bluelining North Georgia and shed a little light on what is probably the closest wild and native freestone trout water to Louisiana. The event is free so if you’re in the Baton Rouge area and you’ve got any interest at all in fly fishing come check it out.
If you have a spare 30 minutes this is worth a watch, I actually found it on Amazon Prime. It’s amazing to see what fly fishing can do for a community. The people of Rewa, Guyana knew they had a special fish with the arapaima and wanted to make sure it was around for future generations. They decided to protect the fish, establish an eco-lodge, and try to become a tourism destination. Costa sent a few anglers down to figure out how to reliably catch these fish on the fly, which may have never been done before.
