The New River is such a world famous fishery. I love catching up with anglers who spend a lot of time chasing down smallmouth bass and muskie on the New. So naturally when I saw Ben Morrison with some impressive smallmouth bass on his Instagram, I knew he would have some great insight on fishing the New River. Read on to learn how Ben takes on this amazing fishery.
Timmy Dixon is the owner of New River Outdoor Adventures in Galax, Virginia. Before interviewing business owners, I do research to make sure they represent business qualities that I want to promote to the readers of DockTalk365.

Reviews of New River Outdoor Adventures are terrific. And as you will see, good thing because so is this interview. New River is one of the Northeast’s finest fisheries and Timmy breaks down why and how to approach the fishing on the river.
I have never fished the New River but since doing this blog I am realizing that the New needs to be on my bucket list.

Adrian and I discussed his New River fishing and he filled us in on some of his secrets of catching big bass and musky on the New.
We had such a great time talking with Wes Smallwood, that we had to put the interview into two parts. If you haven’t read part I, you can read it here.

We then get into some Virginia fishing discussion including the fish story behind Wes’ Trophy Citation Smallmouth Bass. Fantastic reading from this young up and coming competitive kayak angler.
I am fascinated by Smith Mountain Lake. I have never fished it but know people who have with mixed success.

This young angler has a lot of great fishing knowledge already and high goals for his future tournament fishing. Read on to learn more about this Virginia angler.
There are people that you can just tell, without even meeting them, that they would be fun to fish with. I thought that instantly after checking out The Bald Bearded Basser, also known as Tim White. After this interview, I know I would not only have a blast fishing with this young man from Daniels, West Virginia but would also learn a thing or two about catching big largemouth.
