We are delighted to welcome you on this website and hope that you find the information relevant and informative. Everything from fishing to hunting and outdoor adventures will be covered here.
The name of this site comes from the fact that the creator, Alan, is a big fan of snakehead fishing and has spent many years honing his skills and passing those on to friends and family, as well as by working with providers of organized hunting and fishing trips in Virginia.
To help people better understand the skills needed and how to become better at fishing snakeheads, this site was born. So one of the questions always is: Why Snakeheads?
While the fish is native to Asia, it has appeared in many places around North America, and it is quite disruptive.
Because it is a predatory fish it can cause a lot of damage to other fish species especially in areas where predators in the water are not common. Their numbers can explode very quickly.
The good news is that they are a great food source and is quite a tasty fish at that. When I first heard of these fish making an appearance in the early 2000s I set out to find them and see for myself. At this stage there are many areas in the US where these fish can be caught and there are no designated restrictions on catching them.
At 18 inches long they are quite a large fresh water fish, so for anyone who likes fishing in rivers, lakes and ponds this should be a good reason to target them. Over the years I have trialed many different fishing styles and lures to figure out what works best, and on this site I share that info with you.
But fishing is not my only hobby. For many years, ever since I was a child I have gone on fishing and hunting trips often over several days that involve camping. I’m not much into sports or trophy hunting, and generally only hunt animals I would use as a source of food. On some occasions I have hunted bears, mainly to help out during a cull or when they got too close to my property.
I love nature and I love exploring it rather than what most people do by just watching TV shows about nature. Over the years I have built up an array of gear that works really well for different climate conditions, places and most importantly for multi day trips where weight can become an issue.
Make sure you check out our designated gear section for reviews on stuff I find essential which covers everything from fishing tackle and rods, hunting rifles, tents and survival essentials. If you like what you read, please share with your friends and drop us a note in the comments sections.
In the coming weeks you can expect more info on some deals we will be making for our readers to join on some adventure trips for the fall hunting and fishing season. These are trips with people I know and respect so we can guarantee that you will have a good time and learn a lot while you are at it.
