Want to catch a world record on a fly rod? I have guided my anglers to five fly rod world records – Conway Bowman’s 41.65 lb fish on 20lb tippet (right), Jim Smith’s 33lb 10oz fish on 8lb tippet, and Dough Behrman’s 3 new world records on 8# tippet (34.8lb), 4# tippet (28lb). and 2# tippet (29.8lb).

My anglers have also accounted for several state records, including Bob Stafford’s 37.8lb redfish, a 41.1lb red caught by Conway (which was also Louisiana’s 2005 Fish-of-the-Year), Tony Kirk’s state record Sheepshead of almost 8 lbs, and Tom Stevenson’s new state fly record Black drum of 56lb (Louisiana’s 2006 Fish-of-the-Year).
