    Default Where have you all fished?

    All this talk of travel has gotten me thinking. I'm wondering how many states/countries have you all fished in. And, whats the furtherest you've gone to fish?

    Default travel FF

    I've been to Yellowstone area of Montana/Wyoming twice. Norfork river in Arkansas, fished several streams in western NC and fished some in a sea kayak while on vacation in Sanabel Island, FL.
    I traveled alot when in the military but never stayed anywhere long enough to wet a line. I was on an Aircraft carrier, all work very little time to play.

    I have fished many place in Florida from ponds to the panhandle. Most of my fishing in Florida came as a kid around the Fort Myers and Sanibel Island area. Right before I started fly fishing my father and I took a trip to Pensicola and fished a little there. All other fishing has been done on the rivers and lakes around East TN. I would really like to go to the LA or TX coast and go after some reds though. Just seems fun and a whole lot closer than the Keys trip I would like to take.

    Let's see...Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, New York, Oklahoma, and Ontario, Canada.

    Flying Trout: In my role as tourism promoter for Louisiana, I would heartily recommend coming on down. There are a bunch of good guides you can hire that will put you on the fish - and more and more of them are taking on fly-fishing customers. I have literally seen 40 or more redfish all working an area no bigger than an average living room, but you really need someone who knows where to go and when - we have a lot of water, and after a while, it all looks alike - miles and miles of bayous, duck ponds, bays, and marsh grass.

    Default Fishing across the Country

    I LOVE this poll! One of my life long goals is to catch a fish in all 50 states. I don't care what fish it is, or how I catch it - I just want to do it. I travel for business, so I get to a lot of places I would otherwise never get to see. My best example of this - 4 years ago, I had to go to Hawaii for a show. I was there for 3 days and three nights, and literrally had NO free time. But, the 2nd evening, I scrounged up a spinning combo and a handful of 1/4 oz. maribou jigs and went down to the Waikiki dock (where they filmed the opening shots for Gilligans Island!!) I ended up getting 4 hits and landing 2 fish - both about 10" long, 1 drab brown, the other sort of greenish. No idea what they were, but I caught a fish in Hawaii!! I also saw palmetto bugs crawling around the docks that were about the size of the fish I caught, but thats another story.

    Anyway, I've caught fish in 33 states so far. Still need: AK, NV, AZ, NM, ND, KS, OK, IA, AR, LA, OH, MS, GA, SC, WV, RI, ME

    KY, TN, AR, SC, NC, VA, NV, WV, GA, IN, OH, MI, PA, MO, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Ireland. Though I would have to say, imagine what kind of fishing, especially trolling, that you could do from an aircraft carrier ;-)
