Jake Jordan Report

Greetings from Havelock NC: 
    Many times people ask me why I left the Florida Keys after five decades to move to North Carolina? Also many of my friends ask what I do the rest of the time when I am not fly fishing around the world for Tarpon, Sailfish, Marlin, and other big fish species? Well the answer to both questions is easy for me, I come home to eastern North Carolina, home of the best fishing that I know of and the best place to live here in this awesome country, The United States of America. Happy Labor Day to all of my great clients, friends, and family, I am truly a blessed Man.

                           My Buddy George Beckwith releasing one of my big Drum caught today
This weekend my friend Wanda Hair Taylor from TFO Rods came over to enjoy dome of our awesome Drum fly fishing. Unfortunately between tropical storm #8 and "Hurricane Hermine" the fly fishing conditions were not very good to say the least. Finally after trying with out success to catch some drum on fly my buddy George Beckwith came to the rescue. Wanda and I met George (Down East Guide Service) Beckwith at his dock, at 11:00 AM this morning, boarded his vessel and headed out to find some Drum. Now you may know that I am a fly fisherman, as is Wanda, However TFO, the company which we represent makes all types of high quality fishing rods, so we decided to test out a few of the TFO (Gary Loomis designed) spinning rods. Most of the time when I fish, there are large fish on light tackle involved, today was no exception. George did a great job putting us on the targeted species, we fished for five hours, caught our limit of "puppy drum: (Redfish under 30 inches), and caught more than a Dozen of the Giants (up to 50 pounds). Here are a couple of pictures from today, no wonder I love my Job! More pictures and reports to follow. Regards
