World Series Missouri River Style

I am personally pulling for the American League team. Being a Mariner’s fan I lean toward the Junior Circuit.

Go Kansas City!

My wife is pulling for the Giants. The Headhunters staff? Mostly San Fransisco fans.

The baseball season has many parallels with the fishing season. They essentially begin and end at the same time. About the time the Boys of Summer  get thinking about Spring Training we get ramped up here on the Missouri River as well getting guide trips out on the Spring Special daily. More on Headhunters Spring Special very soon on this very channel.

So as the MLB season winds down so are most trout fishing operations. Many guides and outfitters around the state are here fun fishing for the remainder of the month and into November. They like streamer and dry fly fishing too!

The difference here on the Mo? Headhunters Fly Shop and Guide Service keeps on fishing. All 12 months. The shop is open every day except for those below 0F. Christmas too. But that is about it. We have a strong minor league, a winter ball/fishing session, 2 Handed Guide Trips for $300 starting on November 1st, and  your Trout Spey Rod Demo center all winter long!

Don’t forget the Free Spey/2 Handed Casting Clinics beginning December 6th.


Here is my take on the World Series Missouri River Style.

I may have written a blog like this in the last 7 years, but really cannot do not care remember.

A Single: The best way to be guided. Just ask any fishing guide.

The Double: Well, two fish on. One for each angler.

A Triple: Not 3 anglers in the boat.

Home Run: Any day off of work and on t river with friends. A Home Run everytime.

Strike-Out: No beer int he cooler

Skipper: Guide of course.

Balk: Landing that Whitey!

Stolen Base: Getting to the boat ramp first!

Suicide Squeeze: Cutting off, low holing your buddy and catching a big brown trout!

Double Play: Forgot your Gink and out of 5X.

Double Switch: Thought you had a big brown trout on the line, bring it to the boat, and it turns out to be a fouled Whitey!

Grand Slam: Catching fish on dries, nymphs, streamers, and a shot of Fireball to finish!


Just a few terms that are crossover from baseball to fishing. What are your favorite terms? Let us know. Don’t forget about the two handed season, the free clinics, and your favorite destination fly shop is open all winter!
