The 12 Days of Christmas: Twelve Drummers Drumming

That’s a big fish for a guy from Colorado.

Editor’s note: To celebrate the holiday season, we are counting down the twelve days of Christmas with a fly-fishing theme. (Yes, we realize that the actual Twelvetide celebration comes after Christmas, but that didn’t seem as fun.) ¬†We’re using classic posts that align with the lyrics of the traditional tune as closely as possible. Since redfish are also known as “red drum,” here are some photos to kick off the countdown.

“On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, twelve drummers drumming. . .”

I was recently in Panama City Beach, Florida, and looked up David Magnum of Shallow Water Expeditions to go fishing for a day. Dave had an opening and was able to put me on a few fish while I was in town. A big shout-out to Dave and his crew; that guy is seriously dialed in!

Scott Graham is the manager of North Park Anglers, in Walden, Colorado.
