Picture of the Day – Russ Maddin Smallmouth Bass

Had the pleasure of fishing with Russ Maddin yesterday fellow guide and Scott Pro Staff member.  Even though Russ and I live in the same town and work for the same company, Hawkins Outfitters.  With what I call “life” consuming so much of our time, days spent together on the water do not happen enough.  So getting a chance to watch one of the fishiest kids I know go to work with a streamer rod in his hands.  Is a great day on the water.

Russ by far has some of the sickest streamer patterns around for trout, and the smallmouth loved them too.  With August here at our door step some of the best river smallmouth fishing of the season is upon us, check out my new DVD for additional flies, tactics, and pointers on catching more smallmouth in a river.
