Bass Pond - Farm Pond - Judith O Keefe

Florida Keys - Snapper

Make Mine a Double

Words by Judith O’Keefe Photos courtesy of Burkheimer Rods I love casting a fly rod. That used to be all I’d have to say.  It was generally assumed I was referring to my single hand rod, and I was.  I learned to fly fish on the Deschutes River, casting a sink-tip fly line as far as I could, hoping to…

Saving Bristol Bay - Judith O'Keefe
