I do not think it much of a leap at all to say that the onion ring could be one the most polarizing fried treats to ever adorn a restaurant menu. Oft […]

Stripes

Spring. Battleground season in the Northeast when the warm, pleasant and consistent summery weather begins its war of attrition with the holdover days of winter. Short, cold and wet and dug into the latter […]

The water can be deep and still skinny right?

So… In a land far far away, big boats with even bigger motors hanging off the back run away from the beautiful flats, shoals, creeks and mangrove lines that we here at Skinny Water Culture know and love.  We do however share a few commonalities with these seemingly crazed individuals (and more often then not teams).  We both will wake up at the crack of 4am to get our boats, wether it be a kayak, skiff, 30ft center console or 65ft sport fisher rigged up and ready to fish the chosen grounds.

Back to Your Roots

by Luke Williams October 22, 2013 0 Comments

Now I am far from what people would describe as 'sentimental'. But I do have a special place reserved in my heart for the small streams of western North Carolina. These streams are what introduced me to and eventually made me fall in love with fly fishing. On that same note, I owe a lot of that to a good friend named Ben Castle. Coincidentally enough, these streams are the first place that Ben and I fished together. We meet up every few months to fish, mostly here in south Florida, the Bahamas, and sometimes out in Colorado. But we always make a point of heading back up to WNC to hit these beautiful small streams. Wild_Rainbow_Swc
