Blog of Note: Fly Times DC

I first stumbled upon Fly Times DC about a year ago when I began to seriously fly fish the Potomac River. I had been talking to and following Rob Snowhite aka The Fly Fishing Consultant and saw him repost and retweet a few things from them. Their motto, "Above All Else, Stay Fly" was the hook for me, I'm all about being fly both in the literal (fly fishing) and figurative sense of the word.

With content to keep you busy weekly from fishing reports, "Fly Tunes" (music for the fisherman), custom tied flies, tip & techniques and more...your bound to get something new almost every day of the week.

Fly Times DC is a run by Remick Smothers, a fly fisherman through and through. He runs Fly Times with a specific agenda every week so you know you'll get new content in the same formula Monday-Friday. "The Hatch" is the agenda he follows:

Mondays - Weekend Fishing Reports 

Tuesdays - Tips & Techniques

Wednesdays - Word Hatch
Thursdays - FlyTunes & FlyFlicks

Fridays - Weekend Fishing Forecast

FTDC isn't afraid to let you know where the bite is and whats working. Their thorough fishing reports always produce and thats pretty prevalent through their own catches. Warmwater species is generally the focus of their pursuit but they will fish areas that produce Stripers, Blues, and other salt species as well as trout in fresh streams.

We have yet to fish with Remick but its only a matter of time. And if you want to do so, he teaches 1/2 hour casting lessons for $20 a person and does take people out to do some bank fishing.

You can find Fly Times DC on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as well as their site.
