One Who Got Away

This one got away. I don't often keep fish I catch anymore but that's of little salve to the wound of seeing a giant winter bass come to the edge of your kayak then watch it slip back down when a piece of leader gives way at its tipping point. It was amazing to find fish stacked up in cold waters but to lose the biggest was a heartbreaker I may never get over. It still hurts.

Celebrating life on the water, pen in hand

Todd Corayer has lived in Rhode Island most of his life and has spent much of that time working, fishing, exploring and writing about the 400-mile coastline. Todd takes just as much pride in protecting the waterways through conservation and advocacy groups, as he does writing about and highlighting many of the great fishermen of Rhode Island. When he’s not fishing or writing about fishing, he’s hanging at home with the family (and mentally plotting the next fishing adventure.) Click to learn more about Todd’s writing history, where you can find his articles and the name of his favorite being,outside of his wife and son.
