Vaughn Cochran Catches a Winner with a Blackfly!
Vaughn Cochran, artist, angler, former guide & Blackfly Lodge owner got in a couple days of fishing on a busman’s holiday near his St Augustine home. The first day’s fishing was tough going with an early season cold front bringing wind and rain but the action heated up with the weather on day two. Vaughn caught this nice Redfish to take Second Place in the Oldest City Red*Trout Celebrity Classic. This bronze beauty took a black crab fly, not to be confused with Vaughn’s award winning “BlackFly.” The Classic is part of the prestigious Redbone tournament series. The event raised over $60,000 for the Cystic Fibrousis Foundation.
