Reflecting Back on Some of my Previous Post The Last 3 Years


Writing a blog has afforded me so many opportunities. The first and foremost is conversing with some of the best fly fishermen throughout the United States. The second is the finding, researching, and using some great products on the market for fly fishing; and last being able to record and look back on some of the best fly fishing trips I have ever experienced for bluegills, bass and trout using the fly rod. I thought it would be neat to give my viewers an opportunity to view and read some of my past post from Fishing Through Life over the past 3 years. In fact I will be coming up on my 3 year anniversary next week as a Google Blogger, so what a better way to celebrate it than to reflect back on some my of previous post.

I would have to say an April bluegill outing this year had to be one of the best I have ever experienced for super large bluegill.

The month of October has to be some of the best times to land quality bass on Smith Lake using the big Poppers.
