MPT Outdoors Maryland Visits Backwater Angler

MPT Outdoors Maryland gearing up to Fly fish the Gunpowder
Last week Backwater Angler hosted a crew from Emmy award winning MPT, (Maryland Public Television) in the shop and on-stream for an upcoming Outdoors Maryland video segment. Pictured from left are: Jeff Lewatowski, Christy Neale, (who, as an associate producer brought home an Emmy in the Chesapeake Heritage category for Eatin’ Crab Cakes: The Best I Ever Had) Brandon Huse, Theaux Le Gardeur, Mark Burlet and Goldy. The water level had just dropped that morning leading up the the annual DNR shocking survey so conditions were a little tough. We managed to fool a few fish in front of the cameras using small caddis, blue winged olives, a few pheasant tails and a rather large snowshoe Cahill in the boulder pools.
