Family is important. Today is my moms birthday!! I see so much of her in me. My attitude, energy, silliness, mannerisms, body type, some facial features, and even my attraction to older men 😜 Though we live far away from each other it is those resemblances that keep you with me always. Love you mom @lovemydimples1 hope you have a fun day ❤️

When I was three years old I came home from preschool with a pothos plant in a styrofoam cup that had two leaves on it and gave it to my grandmother for Mother’s Day. This is a clipping of that same plant from 23 years ago. It is in a ton of pots all over her house and she constantly gifts clippings to people. It’s has grown to three pots here in my tiny apt and I’ve given clippings to friends to keep the legacy going. She is my most prized plant baby ❤️🌿✨ #houseplantclub #pothos #houseplants #crazyplantlady #melanin #headwrap #denver #blackgirlmagic #beinggreenwhileblack

Here's the #FishingFirsts installment from @t.allagash's two-part series: "I hit Four Mile Run in Alexandria, VA during high tide after work. From the first cast, it was a weird day. I saw three snakehead and couldn’t get their attention, so I waded back out of the water and walked along the bank.

When I was walking on a high part of the bank, I saw a huge snake. I think I scared it because when I stopped it slithered into the water and over/near a brown bump in the shallow water. I looked closer at the bump and it was that carp!

I changed my fly and casted way past it so I wouldn’t spook it. After 2 casts and dragging the fly right across its face, it took the fly and the fight was on. It took a long time to bring it to hand because I didn’t have the heavy tackle I needed to muscle it. Once I got it to the bank and in the net, it ripped my net. I ended up having to cut it the rest of the way out. Luckily, a nice man stopped his bike commute to snap a few pictures for me.

I’m hanging my torn net up in my apartment this weekend. Fish of the day & my first carp on the fly!"

The first in a two-part series from @t.allagash: "My dad introduced me to fishing and fly fishing as soon as I could walk to the Musconetcong River with him.
As I got older, I only went fishing whenever my dad asked me to tag along. I didn’t think about the sport much except for when he took big trips to places like Argentina, Alaska, and the Bahamas to fish with his friends and colleagues.

After I graduated from Howard University, I decided that I wanted a hobby that was cheap and would give me a sense of adventure, so I picked the fly rod back up.

The “cheap” part didn’t work out, but I knew I’d found my new (old) passion."

Me and Bae during yesterday’s accidental 5 mile hike! We set off for maybe a 2 mile hike, but started on an unintended trailhead and ended up going for a 5 mile one instead! But it was a happy accident. The more time spent in the woods, the better! And we ended the day with a cookout, so smiles all around yesterday!

We're honored to feature @joel_r_johnson. Peep the link in our bio for Joel's take on how diversity will grow fly fishing. "I've been fishing my whole life. My great-grandparents, grandparents, and Dad fished. I started fly fishing for the challenge - and its taken me to Iceland, Montana, and Alaska. I've fly fished in over 30 states. But I love chasing small wild browns on my homewater - the Gunpowder River in Maryland. Black people have always fished in America - for sustenance and joy - but its good social media has increased our visibility. The billion dollar fishing industry ought to be more inclusive. I fight for that all the time in my career which spans many interactions with the fishing industry."

Jawn.

If you're looking to fish the Emerald Coast of Florida, look no further than Capt. Lionel James of @lionstaleadventures. He can get you into monster Redfish, Amberjacks, Red Snappers, Sharks, Pompano, Jack Crevelle, Bonita and Cobia, and more!
