A few weeks back my buddy Ray and I decided to visit another one of our good friends from college, Travis (Travy) who works at the Marine Science Consortium located on Wallops Island, Virginia. Any road trip in my eyes isn’t complete without some sort of fishing being involved. So obviously I packed more fishing gear than clothing and embarked on the five hour journey to Virginia.

It didn’t bother me that forecast called for rain all day, I was going to try my luck in the salt. Being that it was only my second time fishing the salt I was pretty pumped. I found it funny how excited I got to fish for tiny flounder for two days, when in two weeks I’ll be heading to the Caribbean to fish for tarpon and bonefish for three weeks..which I still haven’t come to realization with.

Seeing eye to eye...Travy looking classy as always.
